We aren't having guests for the holiday, but I wanted to do a tablescape using patriotic colors. Since I used my July 4th decorations in Tuesday's Table Top yesterday and since I did a tablescape last year using the firecracker plates (click here to see.) I used some blue and white plates that I bought at TJ Maxx last year. They are called "side plates" have you ever heard plates called this? I haven't!
This is the only reason I bought them! I don't use much blue in our house (just in our yellow guest room.)
Since I was in a hurry I used the same lace tablecloth as last week, and the same flatware.
I started with the red square chargers, then added the square polka dot plates on top:
Next comes the blue napkins, and the blue and white plate on top:
I used some pieces of my small collection of blue and white for the centerpiece.
The pretty blue and white ceramic purse is filled with red, white and blue silk flowers.
The blue and white orb is displayed on a little stand I found recently for $1.99.
The salt and pepper shakers came from Goodwill, for only $2. and the round candle holder from Dollar Tree.
but after taking most of the pictures I decided to add the little flags to the centerpiece:
One in the little shoe
Yep, I like it!
Here's a place for you!
We plan to have an easy meal -
we're going to purchase a rotisserie chicken,
potato salad, baked beans, etc. from our
favorite grocery store! (Can't beat Publix!)
God Bless You!
I hope you enjoyed my red, white, and blue tablescape! To see the centerpiece using yellow roses, click here to the one I did last year.
