Add pizzazz to your Fourth of July party with starry tabletop runners made from red and white paper. The motif can be produced by tracing a four-star template onto accordion-folded paper and cutting multiples. Use a blue tablecloth as a base for the runners, and then cover them with organdy. Matching napkin ties can double as place cards and complete the theme.
