4th of July Painted Placemat & Napkin

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Hello all, are you excited for the upcoming Fourth of July? It’s one of my favorite holidays, I love the food and patriotic traditions!  Some years we host a party since we have a fantastic view of the local fireworks show from our front yard. In other years we’ll visit someone else’s home. This year my parents are hosting and we’ll spend the day poolside and then do the traditional fireworks observation at night.

I got crafty this year playing off Old Glory’s red and white stripes and white stars on a blue background to create a fun place setting. I partnered with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Brand to create a striped painted placemat and accompanying star spangled napkin, embellished with a fireworks inspired detail on top.
