Welcome to the 149th Tablescape Thursday!
It won’t be long now, Independence Day is just four days away. Do you have any big plans for your 4th of July celebration?
It was so nice out, I decided to put this tablescape out on the porch.
I used my fave patriotic dishware by Warren Kimble. The pattern is called, “Colonial.”
A red lantern decorated with a touch of red, white and blue ribbon worked well as my centerpiece.
The napkin rings were super easy to make. You’ll find a detailed tutorial here: 4th of July Napkin Ring Tutorial
The flatware is by Hampton Forge and is available here: Hampton Forge San Remo
The porch is all decked out for Independence Day, including the Summer Breeze sign.
Getting dark out now, time for a little candlelight.
Thank-you to all the men and women, past and present, who make it possible for us to celebrate with freedom this Independence Day!
Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!
