July 4 is just days away and if you do not yet have the perfect tablescape for the patriotic holiday, two design stars are bringing their best ideas to "Good Morning America" to inspire you.
New York City-based designer Tyler Wisler and Jenni Radosevich, the founder of ISpyDIY.com, appeared today on “GMA,” going head-to-head to create their version of the ultimate Fourth of July table display using an array of tools and materials such as ribbons, spray paint, pinwheels, plants, umbrellas, paint and two "mystery" items: bricks and a pair of jeans.
Wisler chose to use the jeans as the placemats for his table.
"The biggest thing about the Fourth of July is it’s just a one-off party," he said. "We’re only doing it once a year so there’s not a reason to break the bank so go into your closet, your garage, get stuff that you can use."
Wisler, who said he got many of his ideas from Pinterest, also used red, white and blue pipe cleaners to make flower bouquets.
"This was like a two-second thing but kids love this," Wisler said. "Pipe cleaners are amazing."
Radosevich chose to use paint and real flowers to decorate her picnic table.
"I wanted a big impact so we decided to paint the entire table," she said. "We wanted to do some plants in the front and that way people can take those home at the end of the day so they have a little takeaway."
Radosevich transformed one of the "mystery" items, the pair of jeans, into placeholders.
Only one design star could win the Golden Picnic table and it was up to the audience to pick the winner.
When the "GMA" audience in Times Square voted, it was Radosevich's July 4th picnic table design that came out on top.
