Red White & Blue Tablescape

Memorial Day weekend is here. For this week’s tablescape, I decided to create a tablescape using the items that I got in my Dollar Tree Haul.  I kept it simple so it could be used for a picnic outdoors as well as indoors.  It was inexpensive as well as easy to put together.  I hope you can find some ideas that you can use for your holiday entertaining.

Daisy Birdhouse Wind Chime

I’m still playing around with birdhouses.  I wanted to make a special birdhouse for my sister.  She has a wonderful garden that makes me feel peaceful when I go there.

I know that she’s partial to green & daises.  So it was only natural for me to make a green birdhouse & paint some daises on it for her.

Patriotic Napkin Rings

I’ve been searching for wooden napkin rings for months.  Why wooden?  Because I can customize them with paint to make them ‘mine’.  Store bought ones are okay, but when I get a project in my head, nothing else will do.  (I like to have my napkin rings match my tablescapes.)

This was so easy to do, and here’s how I did it:

Patriotic Decorated Candles

I had a lot of fun with this one.   I’ve been playing with decorations for the 4th of July, and the thought of decorated candles come naturally to me.  (I guess it’s because I love the look and feel of candlelight).

As usual, it’s an incredibly easy project to do.
