4th of July Tablescape

While we continue viewing the beautiful tablescapes linked for yesterday’s Tablescape Thursday, here’s some additional inspiration for your Independence Day dinner. Tina, a dear reader of BNOTP, sent along these wonderful photos of a festive table she created for this great holiday!

Tina told me, “I really love designing tablescapes. I may have 14 sets of dishes, but I mix them all up for holidays and every day occasions. Simple elegance is what I love for every day.”

 

Tina continued, “My kids used to joke when they were little. They never knew what to expect for dinner each night.”

Tina concluded, “When it comes to entertaining, I just want my friends to know that I go the extra mile to make them feel special. Life is what we make it. Why not make it elegant?”

Beautifully said, Tina! Wouldn’t you love to be dining here?

Wadsworth is in charge of the candlelight this year.

Tina, thanks for sharing this wonderful tablescape…perfect for a patriotic holiday dinner.
Be back a little later this afternoon with a second post for today.

    This tablescape just sings Patriotism. Love it! Red, white and blue are some of my favorites.

    I especially like those placemats and the star shaped dishes. Of course the flag centerpiece is just perfect, too! Nice job, Tina.

    I started a little depressed after seeing all your beautiful tables, like yours, with star plates, napkins, placemats and lots of accessories I could never get here!! I did get inspired somehow and started my project, so little by little I made it. I'm very honored that you came by and liked my Patriotic tablescape, I am so thrilled, you cannot imagin, you been a "master tablescaper" and source of my inspiration, all the way from my blog beginnings, 7 mths. ago!! In the pic I'm flanked by my daughters, Sofia, left, Alexandra, right side, they're American too. Have a wonderful week, dear Susan. Hugs, FABBY
