Whether your hosting a July 4th backyard BBQ or a picnic on the beach, set your table with casual, modern pieces that speak to the holiday with Patriotic flair.I like to keep the colors in traditional red, white and blue but mix it up with a variety of unexpected, bold prints.
White enamel flatware add a casual elegance to your table.
Inspired by Mexican banderas, a fire engine placemat adds a fun, graphic punch. 
Catch a wave with pretty blue and white tableware.
Keep cool with nautical inspired glassware.

Spirited Chevron print napkins are a summer classic.
