Welcome to the 248th Tablescape Thursday!
Yesterday I got together for lunch and a little antiquing with my friend, Marie. As the wife of a former Georgia Governor, patriotic holidays like Memorial Day and the 4th of July are important occasions. Their home was decorated beautifully and I’ll be sharing the decorations in an upcoming post. Today, I’m sharing two of the table settings Marie created for Memorial Day (now passed) and for the upcoming 4th of July.
Marie created a wonderful tablescape in her dining room and the Uncle Sam top hats are a riot. (Several folks have asked about the hats…they came from Pier 1 and are made of metal and quite heavy.)
A view from the end…Gold chargers really work well with a patriotic setting. They add just the right amount of contrast, allowing the other colors to really pop.
Love the red, swirl glasses and blue wine glasses.
Independence Day table settings are so much fun to create because you can go all out…the more red, white and blue and the more festive, the better!
Marie, also put together a table in her family room. The red, white and blue tablescape theme really looks beautiful with the color of her walls in this room. I loved the Uncle Sam lamp…so fun!
Liberty/freedom bells worked great as napkin ties/rings. Festive, star-studied dishware is so perfect for this table. Notice how Marie turned the square salad plate on the diagonal for this setting…love that idea.
An overhead view…
The back of each chair was decorated with a red, white and blue star.
Did you get a few ideas for your 4th of July celebration this year? Thanks so much to Marie for sharing these wonderful tablescapes with so many great ideas for patriotic holidays like Memorial Day, Veterans Day or the 4th of July.
Looking forward to all the wonderful tables posted for this Tablescape Thursday!
