18 Essentials For a Festive 4th of July

Oh, say can you see that the fourth of July is only a week away! It's time to start planning just how festive your table will look on the national holiday. Forgo the flag placemats and streamers for a more sophisticated look that's says classic Americana - rather than Walmart's Uhmerica. Enamelware plates are durable enough to use outside (with kids), vintage-inspired flatware will add a historic touch, and simple bistro napkins will combat barbecue-sauce-coated fingers. All you'll be missing is a firework or two, but surely you have those figured out already.
