I am ALL about creating quick and inexpensive table decor using items you most likely already have. This Easy Patriotic Table Decor is very simple to put together and looks festive and stylish! Perfect for Memorial Day, 4th of July or even Labor Day! I have lots and lots of Red, White and Blue creative ideas.

If it’s no fuss and it looks good! I’m on it!
Like my Red, White and Blue Colored Rice jars, or the colored rice combined with white dried beans, I’ve been able to create a quick DIY centerpiece for fast decorating. Adding a simple touch goes a long way!
Make Your Own Red, White and Blue Table Decor
I already had the food coloring and the jars were left over from an old Halloween apothecary jar project. Since my daisy’s haven’t bloomed yet, I picked up a potted daisy mum plant from the grocery store and cut the stems. That’s all I needed.
Experiment with how many drops of each coloring you’ll need. I put way too much in the first round and the colors were too deep. One drop goes a long way!
Place your daisy’s in and you’re good!
I had 3 American flags I added to each jar, but it just wasn’t looking the way I wanted. The flags were too stiff. If I find smaller ones, I would try again. Of course you could add a patriotic ribbon around the rim of the jar.
Every time I looked out to my patio, they made me smile! My patio has become one of my happy spots! Did you see the tabletop Fire Bowl I just made? Another simple project.
After a couple of days, I had an epiphany to add sprigs of lavender from one of the many lavender plants we have. Perfect!
The poor daisy’s were starting to wilt in the 90 degree weather we’ve been having, but I think they still look OK.
Of course they would also good great on the table inside too!
