Can you believe the Fourth of July is a week from today?
I set a table in anticipation of Independence Day,
and in celebration of the Red, White and Blue.
North Carolina’s High Country and Blue Ridge Mountains are a two hour drive from the lake,
making it a favorite weekend destination in the summer to escape the heat.
There’s nothing like a change in latitude to change your attitude when the temperature
drops 15 – 20 degrees at an elevation of 4300 feet!
Join me for a Red, White, and Blue Ridge Getaway, HERE.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are providing a blue back drop
for our red, white and blue dining. . .
My love of the Red, White and Blue extends to transferware too!
Assorted transferware patterns in red and blue are united on
white wood carved chargers on a red, white and blue paisley tablecloth.
Vintage flatware is mixed and matched,
picked for $1 – $2 a piece over the years. . .
Providing a melting pot of patterns at the table.
Have a seat and join me in celebrating this high-flying holiday!
Blue bottles in varying heights provide vases
for an easy and casual table centerpiece.
They’re filled with small flags and red, white and blue blooms . . .
Blue and white hydrangeas and red alstroemeria.
Napkins are mixed and matched at the table . . .
Broad stripes paired with bright stars,
for our star-spangled celebration!
Vintage-inspired postcards are layered on plates,
providing patriotic images and sentiments. . .
“Freedom smiles, her fates secure
Beneath its steadfast stars.”
“A grateful land remembers all her promises today.”
“My Country ’tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty.”
“Standing for the old flag,
standing firm for God.”

“I believe our flag is more than just cloth and ink. It is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, and freedom. It is the history of our nation, and it’s marked by the blood of those who died defending it.”
– John Thune
