Today I’m sharing how to create a simple patriotic tray vignette for our June Pinterest challenge. This is an easy look to pull together just in time for summer fun and the 4th of July. To see last months PC click on my post Relaxing Patio Style With Blue And White Accents.

Once again I want to thank our host Cindy of County Road 407 for organizing our monthly Pinterest challenge. We have 15 bloggers participating today, and I can’t wait to see everyones interpretation. If you are stopping over from Bluesky at Home welcome! I love Carol’s outdoor decorating ideas.
Our inspirational photo comes from Liz Marie Blog with her 4th Of July Decor In The Living Room. I can’t help but admire Liz’s beautiful vintage flags, and how easily she incorporates them into her decor. Be sure to stop by her blog to pin more beautiful images from this post.
Create A Simple Patriotic Tray Vignette
To recreate a similar patriotic tray, I’m using many of the same elements as in the inspirational photo.
- American Flags
- blue jars
- galvanized bucket
- green plant
- something framed
My goal with each Pinterest challenge is to use things that I already have around the house. I must admit though, I would love to find a basket tray like the one in our inspiration photo. Instead, I’m using a galvanized tray with a creamy neutral paint color.
The tray is oval shaped making it a little harder to squeeze everything in, but it works. I really love displaying flags in the demijohn because the small opening keeps the flags more upright.
This flag waving look is really making me happy as I’m thinking of many summertime celebrations from years past.
My bucket holding the ivy is much smaller than the one in the inspiration, so I’m using a couple of books as risers. Rope coasters will add just a little bit of texture for interest just like the basket tray.
Instead of a framed photo, I’m using a vintage chalkboard with “Home of the Brave” and a laurel. I came across the chalkboard in a box of childhood things in the attic. Turns out, it’s my favorite addition to the vignette and it’s a real slate chalkboard. What a keeper!
More Patriotic Decor
Just for fun, I’m including a couple of pillows with stars and stripes on the sofa, and my dad’s old red rocker. It’s not as cute as the red tricycle, but it still brings in a youthful playfulness.
