On the Fourth of July, many Neapolitans and their families will celebrate our nation’s birthday by watching the glorious fireworks display from the best seats in town—right on the beach. This Independence Day vignette is staged for an elegant beachside fete, styled in the trio of patriotic colors.

The sturdy chairs (no sinking in the sand) are softened with flag-inspired fabric and laced with gold sea-themed ties. In a nod to our forefathers, classic lanterns with flameless candles are lined with copies of the Declaration of Independence. Next to the table, a display of red, white, and blue flags in a classic nautical motif makes for a bold pop of color inspired by traditional holiday hues. Draped across the center of the table is a clustered runner of white hydrangea, classic garden roses, peonies, stunning white anemones with bold blue centers, and andromeda.
