The latest issue of TPD Magazine has tons of creative ideas for hosting a stylish Fourth of July party. Today, we are showing off the details of a patriotic picnic with pure Americana style from Anders Ruff. Enjoy!
To create a fresh take on a traditional Americana picnic, we mixed in a traditional red, navy and white with some accents of aqua and kraft. Some of the graphics have a “distressed” feeling, making it feel like a classic American Fair. Pinwheels and firecrackers give off the vibe of summer and celebration, and we mixed inmodern patterns to give it a fresh feel. This collection was designed to be versatile for any summer BBQ or 4th of July celebration.
The dessert table had navy with white modern dot backdrop, paired with a classic white tablecloth and a kraft paper overlay to make it less “formal” and give off the vibe of a true american fair celebration. Galvanized metal played a role throughout the entire party, but in small doses. Metal lanterns hung from the ceiling, and a printable pennants banner from our collection hung on the front of the table. A stunning cake by Got What It Cakes served as the centerpiece with a bright pinwheel decor. “All American” caramel apples sat on top of the cupcake tiers with a printed party flag, pinwheel cookie pops by by Oh! So Yummy, white chocolate covered strawberries gave a fresh “summertime” feeling, and kraft paper bags were filled with candy as a party favor. S’Mores kits and festive sparklers and matches that were embellished to coordinate were on hand for some patriotic fun.
