A CELEBRATION OF FREEDOM!


Happy Fourth Of July!
Enjoy The Day With Your Family and Friends!

American Cemetery, Omaha Beach, Normandy, France
Please Remember And Honor 
The Brave Souls Who Gave Us
The Opportunity To Be With 
Our Loved Ones This Day!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I Am In Tennessee Celebrating With Family!
I hope you will enjoy this repost
of a previous patriotic tablescape.




A Table For Four For The Fourth!

 First try at a rim shot. 



 I determined to put this table together
 without buying anything!
I had everything from previous uses.
 Starting with the center/side piece.
This table is narrow so when setting the table for four
the centerpiece must be set to one side.
 The flowers are from my stuggling garden.
Nikko Hydrangea, Limelight Hydrangea
and Euphorbia for white and blue.
Small American Flag and a red spinner
add a touch of red. Combined in a
white pitcher, my centerpiece if finished.

~~~~~~~~~
Now for the layers.
 White placemat from Dollar Tree
 Cobalt charger from Horchow.
 White Sonoma Valley/Signature Housewares
plate through Amazon
 Vintage Charm Ruby/Anchor Hocking
salad plate.
 Blue and white plaid service/dessert plate.
Goodwill.
 Vintage Charm Ruby/Anchor Hocking
berry bowl/dessert.
The tablecloth is 60 inch fabric for sale in our Etsy shop. 
 Another attempt at the rim shot. This is fun!
Red Goblet from Dillards.
Beaded Coasters, Kim Seybert, Harrods of London.
Our everyday flatware, 
The cobalt hurricane candleholder was thrifted.
The cobalt pitcher in the background
is Fiesta that I have had for years.
The red and the white napkins have become
vintage since I purchased them new.
The napkin ring is simple grosgrain ribbon
and a spinner and small American Flag
are tucked into each napkin as a favor.
All the patriotic decor is from a previous
garden club luncheon. The red, white and blue striped
candle was a sale purchase from Pier One
and is placed in vintage milkglass.
 Including the boa and the Wonder Woman tiara.
At the touch of a button
 One can light up the party!



Sorry, no nightime photos, I'm watching fireworks.

Love it all because it's so celebratory and festive! I think my favorite part is the pinwheel because I happen to love them.

I hope you're having a wonderful time with your family. Happy Independence Day!

Dearest Ginger,
Such a repeat post always remains a great one! You have quite some pieces for setting a pretty patriotic table for the 4th of July.
Oh, I only wish that all Americans, especially the young ones, could visit but once such an impressive American WWII cemetery... That would make quite an impact on appreciating our FREEDOMS!
Hugs and hope your special family time was a happy one.
