Celebrating the Red, White, and Blue

Join me in celebrating the patriotic colors of the USA in honor of the 4th of July. I'm joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life to share some patriotic tabletop settings for Tabletop Tuesday and Joan @ Anything Goes Here for her 4th of July Vintage Holiday Blog Party. Not everything is vintage, but it's all for the red, white, and blue. Each year I like to do something different, so some of the photos are from this summer's tabletops and others are from years past.


















































Wishing each of you a Happy 4th of July!

  1. Sarah, what wonderful red, white & blue you have, and it is all displayed so beautifully! Love that patriotic candle tree and the way you have the little patriotic ornaments hanging on it. And U.S. driving a car is too cute. Is that a tin with Betsy Ross on it? So cute. But the piece de resistance is the whirly gig with Uncle Sam & the Statute of Liberty (is that what it's called?). You have the BEST patriotic decor. Of course, I have some of the best, since you sent me some of yours! laurie

  4. You have sooo many adorable July 4th decorations! My favorite Uncle Sam's are: the fat one, the one with loonnng legs, and the one driving a car! The needlepoint ones are cute as well! I like the vintage 4th cards too, don't think I've seen those before.

    Great quilt! Love it all! Such a nice post!

  14. You've added even more things since I saw your red, white and blue stuff a few days ago! What an amazing collection you have, and you're so good at putting the vignettes together. I've put one of those little desk flags on my Must-Have list! And I just ordered that Long May She Wave book, after seeing it on Martha Stewart yesterday!
