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.

The table is set for 2 and I will be inviting my girl friend over for a early dinner so we can watch the fireworks from Disneyland.  During the summer they set off Fireworks almost every night, which gets to be a little much.

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 love the little flag pillow and it looks so good with my red throw and pillow.  Phyllis gave me the pillow many many years ago and I almost forgot that I had it. The little angel bear is guarding  all the decorations.

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.
