Going to the lake, grilling out, s’mores, fireworks and family time are a few of my favorite ways to celebrate the 4th of July. Independence Day is just around the corner! It’s a holiday that makes me nostalgic for my childhood. I have many fond memories of going to my grandparents’ lake house and I am so excited that Scarlett will get to experience this for the first time this weekend. I love all things patriotic and was excited to put together a patriotic tablescape with my new gorgeous MacKenzie-Childs pieces from their Royal Check line. I have collected their pieces for over 8 years and have a pretty large collection. The Royal Check collection might be my new favorite since we have so much blue and white in our home. I love that their pieces are designed to mix and match too.
I love that the Royal Check pieces work year round, but when you add a touch of red they really look patriotic. The large bowl currently sits on our breakfast room table and I keep our produce in it. For entertaining the bowl is perfect to use as a large salad bowl, a fruit bowl like I did with watermelon or you can put ice in it and serve wine/drinks/popsicles and more. I also love to use their pitchers as a vase, but since I got this gorgeous red white and blue arrangement I used it as a regular pitcher.
To match my 4th of July tablescape, I paired this gorgeous blue and white Chicwish dress. I added a red headband to give it a patriotic touch. This dress is gorgeous and it’s lined. I am wearing my normal size. I wore this dress to brunch recently with a pink headband and also loved it styled that way. It’s an easy dress to throw on.
