Welcome to the 96th Tablescape Thursday!
Independence Day is just around the corner…time for a little Red, White and Blue!
I could just see these “martini” glasses filled with luscious fruit, maybe raspberries and blueberries with lots of fluffy whipped cream. Wouldn’t that be perfectly patriotic for this tablescape?
I have one “set of 4″ of these red, white, blue and aqua, star place card holders available, In the Bulter’s Pantry on eBay, HERE. I wish I had more…they are so perfect for Memorial Day and 4th of July tablescapes. (The reason they are In the Butler’s Pantry on eBay and not In The Butler’s Pantry on Etsy is because Etsy will only allow handmade items or those over 20 years old…these are brand new.)
Time for a little candlelight as evening arrives on the porch.
Some of the porch…just for fun. You can tell this pics were taken during that magical “blue hour” time. See the bluish cast on the porch?
Playing around…this pic was taken from the deck through the screen. It was tricky fooling the camera to ignore the screening. It’s kind of fun looking into the porch from this perspective.
A candlelight butterfly!
