Gorgeous 4th of July Tablescape & Entertaining Essentials From Wayfair

4th of July Tablescape ideas

The 4th of July evokes many nostalgic and happy memories from my childhood. I can vividly picture my grandpa barbecuing, my aunt and uncle decked out in their trademark red, white, and blue t-shirts, and me helping my grandma pass out the cake and ice cream after dinner. Over the last few years, I have started to enjoy (in fact, I look forward to) creating gorgeous tablescapes for every holiday and special occasion with beautiful decor, fresh flowers, and amazing food! With our nation’s 247th birthday upon us, now is the perfect time to create a gorgeous 4th of July tablescape with delicious food, beautiful decor, and great company!

Gorgeous 4th of July Tablescape & Entertaining Essentials From Wayfair

Like many of you, I love baking and entertaining friends and family throughout the year. Especially in the spring, summer and fall when we tend to dine outdoors! I recently created the most beautiful 4th of July dessert table using some of my favorite kitchen gadgets, entertaining essentials, and red, white, and blue decor items from Wayfair. With that being said, I am so excited to partner once again with Wayfair, which is my go-to for everything furniture, home decor, holiday, and entertaining related! The best part is Wayfair’s Fourth of July Clearance is happening from June 28th until July 5th. You can save up to 70% at their phenomenal annual sale, which is not to be missed! 

There are so many fantastic items on my wish list. I love this gorgeous white bathroom console for my guest bathroom. And this cozy fire pit that will come in handy this summer, fall, and into the winter season. I just added two of these adorable red, white, and blue stars and striped dog beds for my dogs Francesca and Millie to my cart! I’m also obsessed with these modern Adirondack chairs. Which are perfect for my garden and will also look great around my new fire pit! There are so many items to choose from, it’s amazing. Another great thing about Wayfair is they also offer fast delivery, which is a bonus and one of my favorite perks!

My Favorite Kitchen Gadgets For Summer Entertaining

Kitchen gadgets are my weakness! I love using my KitchenAid stand mixer every chance I get and trying new attachments! So far I have an ice cream attachment, a spiralizer. And a shaved ice attachment which are ALL ideal for summer! The shave ice attachment is perfect for making snow cones, cocktails and that is just the beginning! 

KitchenAid shaved ice attachment

This KitchenAid shaved ice attachment comes with four molds and is very easy to use! All you do is add water or your favorite beverage to the mold! After you fill the mold with your favorite beverage (and place the plastic lid on top), put it in the freezer. Once it is frozen, take the mold out of the freezer, pop the ice out (of the mold), and attach it to the shaved ice attachment, and turn it on. It is that easy! 
Like many of you, I love watching instructional videos to learn how to use gadgets. This YouTube video was helpful and showed me how to use this attachment properly!

Nostalgia Old Fashioned Electric Ice Cream Machine

Nostalgia Electric Bucket Ice Cream Maker

Ever since I watched my grandpa make homemade ice cream in his antique wood ice cream maker when I was a kid, I have wanted one! I can vividly remember begging my parents, but they never obliged. I don’t know what took me so long. But I finally bought the wood Nostalgia Electric Bucket Ice Cream Maker for my birthday a few weeks ago, and I’m obsessed! 

Right after my vintage-inspired wood ice cream maker arrived, I got it out of the box and pulled out the instructions and recipes. As someone who loves gadgets but hates putting things together, I was excited to learn that it is easy to assemble! After I washed everything (except the motor), I put the canister in the freezer and started mixing the three ingredients for homemade chocolate ice cream. After I did that, I put the chocolate ice cream mixture into the canister. And placed it back into the freezer for 30 minutes. 

Once my timer went off, I placed the canister in the middle of the ice cream machine. I started layering crushed ice and ice cream salt (rock salt) around the canister (and filled it to the top). After I placed the motor on top of the machine and plugged it in, it was smooth sailing! Within 30 minutes, I had delicious homemade chocolate soft-serve ice cream that my family and I have been devouring ever since!

This fantastic ice cream machine is perfect for the 4th of July and will also be a staple all summer!

If you want to make a few different flavors at a time, you need this phenomenal Tovolo ice cream tub/container! I have had it for years, and it keeps my homemade ice cream fresh and tasting fabulous. Now is a great time to buy one, two (or more), so you can keep one for yourself and share homemade ice cream with your neighbors, friends, and family all summer!

Red, White & Blue Shaved Ice For The 4th of July

4th of July snow cones

Once you’ve crushed your ice, it is time to top it with high quality shaved ice syrup! The Nostalgia Premium Snow Cone Syrup Party Kit has long been a favorite! It comes with Blue Raspberry, Cherry, and Cotton Candy syrup! Another great thing about this phenomenal kit is it also comes with cones and spoons/straws. Nostalgia has the best syrup! Wayfair also carries this fantastic Nostalgia snow cone maker, which will hold enough ice for 20 snow cones. This is ideal for a 4th of July party or a summer celebration.

Beautiful 4th of July Cake

What better way to celebrate America’s 247th birthday than with a beautiful cake and ice cream? While I consider myself a novice baker, I must say that my KitchenAid stand mixer and Nordic Ware cake pans help me up my game! I have quite the collection of Nordic Ware pans. From bundt cakes to loaf cakes, and cakelets (mini cakes) and that’s just the beginning! They are well made in the USA of aluminum and are a baking essential. The pans also make great gifts. I’ve gifted a few for holidays, housewarming gifts, and birthdays!

Round Heritage Bundt Cake Pan

I love this versatile modern Round Heritage Bundt Cake Pan, it is my absolute favorite. It has the power to wow your guests! Since I love red velvet cake, I used a boxed red velvet cake mix and added my ingredients to my stand mixer, and coated my cake pan with shortening and flour. After baking the cake, I let it cool and then transferred it onto my beautiful domed glass cake stand.

I made a cream cheese glaze to drizzle down the sides, topped it with farm-fresh blueberries and I cut strawberries into stars so the cake was red, white, and blue!
