Welcome to the 250th Tablescape Thursday!
Marie always sets the cutest children’s table for each holiday or event. The one she created for her 6 grandchildren for this year’s 4th of July is a delight!
The table has a “star” theme with red and white polka dot star salad plates and blue and white striped salad plates.
An overhead view…
This was the same table Marie used for her own four children when they were growing up. Now her grandchildren enjoy loving prepared meals where their parents did…love that!
My favorite part of this table is the centerpiece. We have mischievous ants making off with the food!
Do you remember that old Chris Van Allsburg children’s book called “Two Bad Ants?” In this case, it’s “six bad ants.” 😉 That used to be one of my son’s favorite books when he was small. Mine, too.
Marie also decorated her breakfast room hutch that’s just a few feet away from the children’s table.
A Bonus Table Setting:
The terrace level wasn’t left out in the 4th of July preparations.
Love those swirl glasses! Those are available in Pier 1.
Each tiny tureen has a small star candle hidden inside.
Love the rectangle flag plates. They have so many cute things available these days for Independence Day celebrations.
Thanks so much to Marie for sharing her wonderful 4th of July tables!
