How I Set A July Table

How I pulled together my Americana
themed breakfast table using things I have.
I brought out some of red dishes and a
few accessories to add to the blue
and it was done in no time.
Here's how I started. 
I'm using 2 kitchen towels for a 
country-style table runner. My red 
Coke crate is so Americana. 
 I filled it with an oil lamp because I like to
have candles or this lamp for a flame. It's
 nice to light it for dinners. I also added
Longaberger S&P with basket, extra
  plates, and a white ironstone creamer.
A red transferware tea set and a
hand embroidered apple tea towel are 
at one end.
This orchid is still in full bloom, so that's
included. I always like to have a fresh plant
or flowers on the table.
 I wanted to mix and match my blue and
 white dishes with the red.
 I tried several combinations.
 I liked all the combinations.
 There will be a constant mix each day
as I set the table.
 Here's another set-up.
 Ruby glass salad bowls. 
This is a good way for me to use some
of my incomplete sets. 
I love playing with dishes. 
I added extra blue and white pillows to 
the back of the wicker chairs to complete
the color combination. 
Everyday table setting for July.
Didn't take me long and I get to use 
play with the things I have. 
 Now time to sit and enjoy our morning joe
and a strawberry pancake...yum!

Cheers!

    1. Susie, I found them at a thrift store for 50¢ each. I only have 2 of each. They still had tags. A lucky find.

    2. I remembered the sticker was Crate & Barrel. I googled red polka dot dishes and found these at JCP on sale for $29. Hope that helps. http://www.jcpenney.com/maxwell-and-williams-sprinkle-polka-dot-4-pc-place-setting
