10 Cool Tablescapes To Copy This Weekend

Give us a hotdog, a slice of watermelon, and an epic fireworks show — that's a successful Fourth of July in our book. But, as much as we dig casual, we also love the chance to pull out the linens, line up the silverware, and experiment with our stem-arranging skills. It's America's big day, after all.
Ahead, we found 10 tablescapes to inspire the festive (not stuffy) dinner party. It's about the unexpected details, like succulents mixed with blooms, gold silverware (is it still called "silverware?"), and surprising place mat choices. Whether you're setting a buffet or serving a four-course meal this weekend, your table's going to be seeing some action. Make sure it's up to the task.
