Since I love the Fourth of July, thought that I would do a tablescape to honor our wonderful Country.
I decided to put this on my front patio with all the roses enclosing this little area. Most of my dishes that I used I have had for a while.
The red charger plates I purchased at Marshall's about 4 years ago along with the bowls The blue glass ware is from the Dollar Tree for $1.00 each.
Meet Liberty - I found him at Michael's and he was $14.99, but with my 50% discount I got him for $7.50. Don't you love it when you find a great deal. I danced all the way to the check out counter. Not that I needed another rooster, but he was calling my name.
I made these napkins from material that I found in my stash and I put a white napkin with it to bring out the pretty design of the material. I have enough left over to make a table runner or more napkins, as I only made four. I also found this red/white check material which I made into a tablecloth. I have enough material to make 4 napkins.
The white plates with the blue strip I found at SA for a $1.00 each. They are nice and heavy plates and I felt that they would go with what I was trying to achieve for my tablescape.
My friend Phyllis from Aroundthehouse gave me the red silverwar and the little metal buckets, which go very well with the dishes.
I made a wreath for the front porch with all red, white and blue flowers and decorations. I have placed numerous flags in my flower pots on the porch.
Just a few of my flags flying in the breeze. I must say that it was very hot here today. What made it so bad is the humidity - which normally it is very low, but not today. I though that I was going to melt. No more tablescapes outside when it's hot,
I hope you have enjoy my little tablescape. I would like to give thanks to all our military who keep us safe and sound - God Bless you all.
Waldo, Lili and I hope that you will leave us a comment as we love reading them and I try to answer all of my comments.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all of my blogging friends.
