Blue and White Ceramics

Filled With Red, White, and Blue!

My inspiration for this year's 

4th of July tablescape.

I had the good fortune to be selected 

as the one to receive a pair of these 

beautiful blue and white flower frogs that

offered as a giveaway last March.

Thank you, Marlis!  They are my "go to" vases this summer

and are a perfect compliment for either side 

of a recent estate sale find.

My Flag Day post featured  

a few pieces of Liberty Blue transferware 

that I'd found at a thrift store.

Much to my surprise, 

3 of these plates arrived at my doorstep last week,

a gift from blogging friend 

She had extras and wanted me to have them.  

Now I can set a table for five.  

Thank you, Christine!

4th of July 

Red ~ White Blue

The Liberty Blue plates 

feature a pretty border of flowers.

I paired them with white chargers with a lattice border, 

and completed the stack using a blue linen napkin

atop a woven red placemat.

Bright red napkins finish

 off the red, white, and blue tribute.

Mother of pearl and silver flatware 

shines like the stars in our flag.

All Perfectly Patriotic!

A 4th of July celebration isn't complete 

without a few sparklers to end the evening.
