I set a table that’s Red, White and Blooming in anticipation of Independence Day!
We’ll be celebrating family members’ birthdays along with America’s birthday this weekend and watching the fireworks from the water. I couldn’t resist dishing out a little tabletop fun with some patriotic fanfare in a celebration of red, white and blue.
Broad stripes and bright stars napkins are ready for a star-spangled celebration.
In addition to the flag, I pulled out some things I pledge allegiance to, including my husband’s grandmother’s Crown Ducal Bristol transferware for this patriotic table.
I added a mixture of blue and white transferware pieces that proudly hail from a favorite antique mall. . .
Flags and a red, white and blooming combination of Endless Summer Hydrangeas, coleus and Queen Anne’s Lace, free for the picking from my field of dreams, provide a patriotic bouquet and centerpiece.
And flatware was mixed and matched, picked for $1 – $2 apiece, to provide a melting pot of patterns.
Pots of coleus, verbena and lobelia are showing their patriotism on this high-flying holiday!
