PATRIOTIC BUCKET CENTERPIECE

Can you believe it is May? May is a busy month for us this year so I am excited to join Carol for the Celebrate the Holiday. I hope you find a little inspiration! Did you see Carol’s spring tablescape?

Carol and I have become friends over the past few years. I encourage you to check out her blog and her Blogger Bulletin newsletter. She has a wealth of information if you are new to blogging or looking to up your blog game.

Do you want a quick patriotic centerpiece to take you through Memorial Day to Labor Day? I got you covered.

How to make a patriotic centerpiece with a bucket.

If you are a frequent reader at Everyday Edits know that one of my go-to decor staples is an aluminum bucket. So I knew I wanted to create a Patriotic bucket centerpiece.

PATRIOTIC BUCKET CENTERPIECE

I decided the bucket centerpiece was perfect for our dining room.

What I love about a bucket as the base is it is very forgiving with how you fill it. I previously painted this galvanized bucket with my favorite creamy white paint.

The white bucket is a showstopper against the navy walls and this dining room table.

STEPS TO FILL A BUCKET CENTERPIECE

  • DRIED BRANCHES I started with dried branches.
  • RED AND WHITE TULIPS I found white tulips at Hobby Lobby and red tulips are beautiful. I order from this floral store. I love these Kentucky-based guys and you will too!
  • RIBBON
  • atrioticAMERICAN FLAGS

That’s all I did. I set the table with 4th of July accessories from Pottery Barn

And added a couple of American flags to tuck between the stems, branches, and tulips. It’s subtle with pops of color in the white painted bucket.

This bucket will be my centerpiece for the entire summer. Red, white, and blue decor works from Memorial Day to Labor Day (with pumpkins making an appearance just before Labor Day). Right!?

The other night I hosted a few friends for a casual happy hour and they all noticed the centerpiece as they walked into the dining room.
