Well, after a long hiatus, I am finally back to posting a new tablescape. I've had my table up for quite a while, but didn't get any pictures taken until this weekend. Hope you enjoy them.
I started with a scrap piece of fabric - dark blue background covered with stars. Next, I layed a red and white checked runner. Uncle Sam stands on top of a glass cake stand covered with red and gold stars.Old standards: wicker chargers and every day dishes. The blue ones are $1 Walmart specials. The 2 large red plates are actually more like pasta bowls. Not exactly plates, but they worked just fine. It's all about the looks, right ladies?!? The "goblets" were a Walmart find this season. I've been on the lookout for red glasses for quite some time and I couldn't seem to find what I've been looking for. These seem to be just right. They're plastic, but I love the size and shape.
I only have 2 star napkin rings. I just put one on each end of the table - perfect patriotic stars. I think tucking a small flag into each napkin adds a special flair.
We decided to invite some more people over for grilled burgers, so I needed to create a second table. It's definitely not as fancy, but I think it still says, "Happy 4th!"
I layered a blue and white checked dish towel, a crocheted doily, and a decoration from elsewhere in the house. Easy peasy centerpiece.
Now that I've made some new tablescapes, I'm ready to make some more. Keep checking back for the next installment. In the meantime, hop on back to Between Naps on the Porch for some more amazingly creative tables.
