Buffet Display

The best 4th of July backyard gathering will feature a delicious spread of summertime fares! Impress your guests with a simple Americana-inspired buffet table. Our Whiskey Barrel Bars offer a classic look, whether you go for a plain or whitewashed wood. We also stock a wide range of serving ware that will make it easy to display food! Including chafing dishes to keep fresh off the grill BBQ hot, and beverage dispensers to keep drinks cool. Classic Family Style Serving Pieces are beautiful options for sides such as slaw and potato salad. Or, showcase charcuterie as a centerpiece on Silver Tray.

Child-Friendly Furniture

For the pint-size guests that will be in attendance, child-size furniture will go a long way to make them feel included. Our charming Children’s Fruitwood Farm Table and Cross-back Chairs are one option – made of the same high-quality materials as our regular-size furniture. They are perfect for setting up game or coloring stations, as well as making meal times easier! We even stock high chairs, if you want to give the parents a little break to enjoy their meal.

Simple Place Settings

You don’t have to go all out to make a big statement! Skip the paper plates and go with solid-colored china instead. In addition to a White Round and Square China, we have beautiful Earthen China A bold black or Onyx will lend a chic modern look atop a red checked pattern, while bright Alabaster atop solid blue tablecloths is a classic. For a fun pop of color, add a vibrant napkin to the stack. Finally, choose from our wide selection of glassware, including a whimsical Meridian Blue Beverage Tumbler!
