Do you need a quick patriotic centerpiece to take you through Memorial Day to Labor Day? I got you covered.
If you are a frequent reader at Everyday Edits you know that one of my go-to decor staples is a bucket. So I knew I wanted to create a Patriotic bucket centerpiece.
PATRIOTIC BUCKET CENTERPIECE
I decided to use 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 cream white. 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 these 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!
- AMERICAN FLAGS
That’s all I did. I set the table with these plates I bought two years ago.
And added a couple of American flags to tuck between the stems, branches and tulips. Love it! Subtle, but with pops of color in the white paint 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.
