Tablescapes, A Tiered Tray for Flag Day

Tomorrow, June 14th, is Flag Day in the USA,

a holiday commemorating the adoption of the stars and stripes flag

representing our country on June 14, 1777

I decided to create a tiered tray for Flag Day

This is a small, 2 tier tray and it’s a great size for a centerpiece

As I shopped my house for red, white & blue,

I discovered quickly that the things I had were very few!

We are always on the coast for the summer holidays,

but I did have a flag banner, a red and white towel,

and a flag bandana

A trip to Hobby Lobby was a red white and blue bonanza!

They had a large selection of tray sized decor

and I also picked up star chargers and flag paper plates

The one thing that I really wanted, small flags, I forgot to get…

but I solved that quickly by finding free flag images,

and putting them on a printable page with PicMonkey

Then I printed them on card stock and cut them out

I made a printable so you could have some too!

The star place card holders are usually used at Christmas time,

but they are perfect for holding the paper flags at each place

I put paper flags on the tiered tray too

I brought out Bloody Mary glasses for the table

because they are painted with big red tomatoes,

perfect for summer!

You can see a tutorial for painting tomatoes here

I also added a couple of containers to the centerpiece

for faux red & white flowers and stems I had

The swirly white stems look festive

and remind me of a firecracker shooting up in the air ๐Ÿงจ

Hooray for the USA!

  1. That’s a very cute and practical tiered tray.. I can see it in my kitchen with some fruits, or bathroom with some makeup stuff or on a dining room table with some treats. Love those swirly white stems … I think I have some in silver colour..just not sure where they are now :-))

    Well, you knocked that out of the park by going to HL, didn’t you?! I like the two-tier tray, and those are such cute chargers and paper plates. And you saved yourself a few Georges by making your own place cards! That banner as runner looks great. Really, it all looks so well put together. I’m into little serving pieces right now, and I love those little red bowls with white bands on the plates. God Bless the USA! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Such a darling tiered tray and I love the tablescape. I just put away my lemon table decor on Saturday. Thinking about something beachy for rest of summer. Maybe I will give my table a rest. LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  12. I would never even think of doing a flag day table. I don’t even know when it is! But it’s darling!
