4th of July Centerpiece Ideas?

I am putting this out there in case somebody reads this in the next two days. I am looking for ideas for a 4th of July Centerpiece. Our Relief Society Birthday party is next Wednesday and another Sister and I are creating a 4th of July table. I am doing the centerpiece but I haven't found anything I really LOVE. I was thinking a gingham blue/red fabric to be the bottom layer and then a bouquet of fresh sunflowers, a glass container filled with the brand spankin new baseballs I got Travis for Christmas (cross my fingers he will let me use them for frilly thing like this), and ________________? I need various heights and I feel like the sunflowers and baseball container will be too much the same. OH, from what I have found containers of lemonade on the table. Maybe a shorter, squatier container so it is a different height. The metal containers are used alot too. But I am trying to stay with the TRUE RED, WHITE, and BLUE colors.
If in your blog hopping or connections you have seen something cool.... LET ME KNOW!

I would love to offer you all kinds of help but I am not the most talented decorator in the world, apparently that gene misssed me :) Remember you were giving me tips on birthday parties.

I would mention maybe some flags though in the mix would be fun and I would LOVE to see the finished product :)
