Tablescape Thursday~ Eclectic 4th of July

Happy 4th of July to all of you and God Bless America and our Troops.....I am joining Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to check out all the other talented tablescapers because we all love playing with our dishes.
I have created an eclectic tablescape by using Dollar Store finds, Christmas floral picks, Memaw's fine crystal, wedding gifts, transferware, and Tiara. As you can see, I used a little bit of this and a little bit of that to create my 4th of July Celebration tablescape. Pour a glass of ice cold lemonade and stay awhile.....

Editor's note: A little bit of education on the way....who knew you could learn something from transferware!

Blue Crown Tiara and my wedding stemware

Christmas floral pick reminds me of a red-hot firecracker....don't ya think?

Gotta have some birdies

Silver and pearls.....what a combo

Even the red Tiara candlestick deserves a little bling!

Wedding gift

Bird's eye view of centerpiece

More fireworks.......

  3. That is beautiful!! I am amazed at the talent that you and all the other tablescapers have. I do not have the niche for that, but wish that I did! :)

  4. How clever you are to use those snowman plates that way! I love all the bits and pieces that you pulled together here. Happy 4th!

  5. Your beautiful blue glassware just MAKES that table! The red and white are gorgeous, too, but adding the blue puts it over the top!

  6. I adore your patriotic spirit. It is red, white and bluetiful!

    I hope you'll stop by for my bbq on an Anthropologie inspired white tablecloth. :)

  7. Oh this is so pretty. I love all of your red, white and blue. YOur tablescape and all the accessories are just stunning. I love your transferware plates with the historical scenes on them. What a fabulous idea to display them on plate stands so everyone can see them properly. So pretty. Happy 4th. Hugs, Marty

  8. Wow, your table is really pretty all dressed in red, white and blue. I love the stemware, it is such a vibrant shade of blue. I like how you have displayed the historical plates...transferware is my favorite.
    Have a great weekend!

  9. What a pretty patriotic table. All this nice red, white and blue. The goblets have such a vibrant color like an precious gemstone. Wish you a very nice 4th of July.
    Greetings, Johanna

  10. Thanks for visiting my blog. I am new enough to blogging that I am not sure how to answer questions so I decided to do it this way. I did not make my placemats and have had them for many years. A friend who admired them made some and hers are so much cuter. She used pockets from real jeans so they are worn and authentic. Hers are so much cuter. Enjoy your weekend and thanks again for visiting.

  11. LOVE all that beautiful glassware!! Oh the blue that! Beautiful table! Thanks for stopping by!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed your visit....please come back soon. Wishing you many blessings!
