4TH OF JULY ~ RED ~ WHITE ~ BLUE



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.
