For the summer months, I love decorating with red, white, and blue! It just seems especially easy and perfect with patriotic holidays like Memorial Day and 4th of July.

Patriotic Centerpiece Materials

  • 1 medium-large clear cylindrical vase
  • 1 smaller cylindrical glass/vase approximately same height as larger vase

  • Red, white, or blue flowers of your choice (real or fake can both work)
  • small American flag


Skittles centerpiece

  1. Starting by sorting the Skittles into separate dishes by colors. We did notice that there were the most blue , then red, then white. So keep that in mind for your project. Depending on the size of your vases, you may need more than one bag.
  2. Arrange the vases by putting the smaller vase (or glass in my case) inside the center of the larger one. If you’re using real flowers, fill the inside vase about half full with water. If you’re using fake flowers, fill with some flower foam.
  3. Cover that inside vase with your hand (or some cling wrap) while you fill the larger vase with the Skittles. Start with a layer of red, then add the white Skittles, and finally the blue. Make sure to fill with the candy right up to the top.
  4. Then add your flowers to the inside vase (cut the flowers down as desired). If you’d like, you can add an American flag for some extra patriotic flair.
