Happy 4th of July...on the 5th!
Hello everyone! I trust all my fellow American friends had a delightful 4th of July! Mine was really nice. The hubby and I went to see this movie.....
It was a very good and perfect to see on the 4th of July! After the movie, we had a nice lunch and did a little grocery shopping. After that, we came home, grilled hot dogs, and met some family and friends to have a picnic and watch the fireworks. It was a wonderful day from start to finish.
I never got a chance to show you my Independence Day tablescape so I thought I would share it today. It wasn't anything fancy in fact, it was very simple. I really like the way it turned out though. I didn't purchase anything for this table, although I did look for some small red, blue, or Americana plates with no success. Anywho, let's have a look.
I used my Little Red Racer wagon for the centerpiece. So cute! I added some vellum bunting from my scrapbook stash. I just taped it on. It made a cute addition I think!
I did not have any small plates to go with a red, white, and blue theme, so I just didn't use any. I folded my napkins accordion style and then folded them in half and tied them with gingham ribbon. I think they look like bunting too.
I printed off a small 4th of July Subway print to add to the table.
And I used some other pieces of vellum scrapbook decor to create this piece and added it to a wooden skewer. I just popped it into one of my milk glass vases.
Like I said, this was a very simple table. My vintage teddy sits in the red wagon and is holding a flag I kept from a Memorial Day cookout I attended.
Here's the whole table. I am currently trying to decide to set the table with next. I am about to go do that now...as soon as I hit publish! I'll share the new tablescape sometime soon.
I hope you are all having a lovely and restful Sunday. It is storming here and I am enjoying listening to the low rumbling of thunder in the distance and the rain hitting my tin roof. Perfect day to piddle around the house. Have a wonderful week!
Until next time.....
