Americana BBQ (and a giveaway!)

Last weekend my sister and I put together an Americana-inspired tablescape for a family BBQ. We incorporated lots of patriotic essentials like red and white striped straws for our lemonade and tiny American flags tucked into all white floral arrangements. It was a ton of fun and got me very excited for the holiday this coming week!

Now, ready for the best part? One lucky reader will win a party kit so you can host a patriotic BBQ too! Just leave a comment below letting me know how you’re celebrating the 4th of July, and I’ll pick one winner on Saturday to receive a package with striped straws, cupcake liners, American flags, and a few other surprises!

Want an extra entry? Follow me on Twitter @domestikateblog and tweet about the giveaway. Leave an extra comment below letting me know you’ve done so. Best of luck!

Update: Contest closed, congrats to the winner, Jess of Curating Style!

    The 4th is my sister’s birthday so we usually have a family get together of burgers and brats. it is usually up to her how she wants to celebrate.

    Adorable tablescape! I bet that made for a fun brunch! I’ll be hanging out on the water in Maine watching fireworks and eating lobsters celebrating my Birthday (and America’s) with the hubby!

    We celebrate the 4th every year in Seaside, FL – a quaint town that just screams Americana! This spread would be the spark to our fireworks & 4th festivities 🙂

    That’s a gorgeous tablescape. It’s such a pain that July 4th is in the middle of the week this year but it’s also one of my good friend’s birthday so we’ll definitely be celebrating with CAKE!
