Three Cheers for the Red, White & Blue Tablescape

I'm always so surprised with how quickly the 4th of July arrives each year.  It probably has something to do with the fact that we get out of school so late in June, that we're barely out & it's already July 4th!

I just had to play with my dishes, I couldn't resist.  So here comes my tablescape...Three Cheers for the Red, White & Blue!




I found the cute bowls at Target in their Dollar Spot.


I have had the tablecloth & placemats for many, many years.  Blue napkins, red plates and wicker stars are all from Pier 1.  Luncheon plate is Corelle.  Dotted Glasses are from Target. 



And then there is my star spangled flatware!  I purchased this on ebay last Fall.    I got such a great deal on it, the cost of the shipping was more than my winning bid for the actual flatware!  I think I danced around the computer that day because I was so happy that I got a deal for once.  lol   


Simple white hydrangeas in a patriotic bowl.  I added star picks for a little sparkle.  




I just had to take this last picture because I thought it was funny how my Meyda Tiffany light matched the whole red, white & blue theme.


What is it about red, white & blue that I love so much?

  1. OH Gina you really have out done yourself this time.
    I have to say this is one of the best Red White and Blue tables I have seen. Just makes you smile doesn't it.
    Wish we were neighbors I could use your creativeness.
    Your lamp over it is just prefect.
    You probably love the colors because like all of us we associate it with our country. We are proud Americans.
    Thanks for sharing this
    Love

  41. Oh Gina, it looks as though you hung that light just for this tablescape. I love it! Seeing your table makes me miss all of my Americana dishes. I have alot and haven't pulled them out this year. We always host an outdoor 4th of July breakfast. I'll pull them out for that. Your table looks so festive and I love the bowls. Yup, red white and blue love for me too!
