Denim Pocket Place Setting

Use pockets from some old jeans or go to local thrift store.  Use a cookie cutter star for the shape and an iron on adhesive to stick the star to the pocket.

Glue red and blue ribbon and/or rick rack on plain white lanterns

Marching Down the Table

Red, white, and blue striped lanterns can become centerpieces for your table. Slip each lantern over a clear glass and add some white flowers inside. A solid blue runner across the table will make these decorations pop. (I’m betting these can be made by using paper plates, cut out the center, staple or gun them together .)
