In honor of celebrating the Fourth of July I decided to gather some red, white and blue and create a tablescape, just for you!
We not planning on a having a dinner or even a picnic gathering, but since I already had everything that I needed to pull it all together I went ahead and did a little "make believe!"
Decorating is very therapeutic to me and it gives me great pleasure to see something turn out as cute as this.
I placed the flatware and cups for coffee on the lazy susan to be convenient to each place setting.
I recently gave it a brand new look by adding a flag fabric band, to the edge, to fit in with the theme. It's, also, concealing the words that I added when I chose the new design.
I'll share it's transformation and the many new looks that it will be wearing very soon!
An old basket, that I recently found, went from a boring old brown to a more pleasant white with a brushing of paint.
I adore these old bread plates and bowls that I found at my favorite, little, antique store down the road. It's called "Miss Minnie's Antiques"....check her out on facebook and stop by for a visit if you're ever in town!
This is my, great grandmother's, flow blue, berry bowl...I sure wished I had some strawberries and blueberries to fill it today!
More from her collections add more vintage to the theme.
I have a lot of blue and white and really want to share them one day with you, too.
A " standing on a chair view".....pretty picture for you.
Now, comes the hard part when I have to put it all away. But, it's definitely staying 'til my honey comes home...he always appreciates the art of my decors!
I'll end this post with a peek from last weekend's dinner that we hosted for good friends.
It was a really delicious meal with a full blown, Italian theme!
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
and Gucci, too!
Can you see him? He's playing "peek-a-boo!
A very special "thank you" to Kathryn from thededicatedhouse for choosing this post as a feature on her blog!
