A summer table set in red, white, and blue, featuring coastal and vintage trimmings, creates an entertaining table ideal for the 4th of July.

Let's design a red, white, and blue table with all the patriotic trimmings for the 4th of July weekend, vintage, thrifted, and coastal cottage in design..

And, of course, I have lobster on my mind! I can’t wait to dive into some fresh Maine lobster, corn on the cob, steamed clams, and fresh bread this 4th of July.

I had my little sidekick, Ella, helping me out too. She was freshly groomed with a blue sparkly nose and red bows in her ears, haha. The bows absolutely kill me…

Each place setting starts with a layered style of blue rectangle placemats topped off with a round braided red lobster accent placemat.

Adding silverware pouches, blue goblets, sailboat juice glasses, and vintage blue and white bowls.

Lobster utensils, a rock for cracking the shells and a small butter patty for small appetizer or dessert like red cherries.

Add a simple white vase with faux or real hydrangeas blooms and maybe some red berries too.
