Patriotic Tablescape

Happy 4th of July everyone!

The 4th of July always inspires me.  I love what it stands for.  And putting together a tablescape to celebrate our nation’s independence is always a joy for me.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

4th of July Tablescape

I started with a red & white checked tablecloth.  For the place setting, I used blue & flag place mats & topped it with a red metallic charger.  Next came a white dinner plate, a blue glass salad plate & then a red glass bowl.  Red flatware brought the red from the tablecloth up.

I used red napkins with some napkin rings that I made this year.  Tutorial coming soon.

Red glasses & star candle holders finished the look that I was going for.  I love the way the sun shines through the glasses, plates & bowls.

My little Beanie Babies even got into the act in a vignette above the table.
