In anticipation of Independence Day, I’m on the porch with a patriotic table!
And I’m proudly celebrating the Red, White and Blue as part of a tablescape blog hop. You’ll find tablesetting inspiration from 18 other bloggers at the bottom of this post!
I planned to do an alfresco table by the lake, (see last year’s Patriotic Table with Red, White and Liberty Blue and this year’s A Blooming Watermelon Vase and Patriotic Table) but it’s been in the mid 90s with 85% humidity for umpteen days in a row. . .to say it’s ‘pore-cleansing’ weather is an understatement. ;)
I decided to stay in the shade of the porch and where I could enjoy a little breeze generated by the ceiling fan instead.
My patriotic tree on the porch for Patriotic Fridays adds some additional red, white and blue and provides a Stars & Stripes Salute for our Nation’s birthday!
Assorted stars and stripes bowls sit atop red and blue rimmed white plates while enamel star napkin rings hold red and blue paisley and striped napkins.
They’re layered on galvanized chargers and straw placemats and served up with Americana flatware!
A galvanized three-tier stand makes an easy centerpiece to celebrate the Red, White & Blue!
It’s filled with sparklers, stars and appetizer plates. . .
And Ball Stars & Stripes Jars are filled with blue hydrangeas, red alstroemeria and patriotic treats, topped mini American flags.
Blue goblets and star straws are ready for some patriotic sipping and serving up Red, White & Blue Sangria!
