4th of July Weekend
I'm linking this post to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
I have an addictive personality. When I discover something new I fall into it and forget about every other single thing for awhile. I somehow found BNOTP and spent hours pouring through all of Susan's great pictures and links on that blog.
Please go see all the tablescapes linked to this week's post - but don't blame me if you are up all night looking at pictures :).
Anyway, here's our table from the holiday:
Plates are The Cellar line from Macy's. The bowls are from World Market. I love my white dishes. I lucked out one day at Macy's and found the open stock plates and the salad plates for .50/each, so I think I bought 16 of each. The napkins and placemats came from Kohls a couple of years ago. The tablecloth is just fabric pieces I had on hand. The glassware is thrift store goodness.
Who says Santa only comes out in December?
Maybe he wants to lead a summer parade!
I used little scraps of fabric as ties on stems, napkins and silverware. They were from an americana-themed christmas tree I used to do--that's why I have the santa (bought him at Bronner's in Frankenmuth, MI).
My sister bought me these little partylite tealight holders a few years ago for Christmas. I finally found a place for them to fit! They look like the stars on the placemats or little sunshines....either way, it works for the holiday.
With the passing of July 4th, my summer travel and holidays for the summer are officially over. Only 2 weeks until the "dog days of summer" and their associated heat and drudgery!
