Red, White, and Blue

A little patriotic table setting.
So easy and quick to do.
Bring out the Stars and Stripes Longaberger
 placemats and napkins. Use the cobalt 
blue glass chargers.
Add the ribbon candle rings. 
See how I made them HERE.
Use the shutter table runner 
to corral everything.
Note the white wooden stars in the planter.
A quick DIY in my next post.
 Add a little red.
Mix in a few red and white plates.
Stack red and blue teacups.
Pop red carnations into my latest
thrift store ironstone vase.
Throw a red white and blue thrifted 
throw over a chair. Remember to grab it
for the fireworks viewing blanket.
All of the Independence Day decorations
are stored in a large Longaberger picnic 
basket next to the sofa table. Remember
 to grab it for the fireworks too.
Feeling festive.
Celebrating Independence Day has more 
meaning for me each year. 
Such a sacred American holiday.
****** God Bless America! ******



  1. Beautiful table for honoring Old Glory Rita May! I love the red and blue transferware, it looks awesome in your patriotic table setting. I also used my red trans. The centerpiece is lovely and so are the place mats. Have a terrific Fourth weekend!

  2. What a lovely and happy table. Enjoy the holiday!

  3. Completely delightful! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Happy 4th! Cherry Kay

  4. You make it sound so simple...throw this in, add this...but it all turned out so beautifully! I like the fullness of this table. It's so interesting. Happy 4th! ~Zun

  5. It looks great. Love the place mat and napkins. Happy 4th!

  6. So festive. I love the box with red and white and blue and white plates and the patriotic napkin. Your napkin fold is so pretty too. laurie
