Two 4th of July Table Settings

Welcome to the 99th Tablescape Thursday!


For this week’s Tablescape Thursday, I’m thrilled to be sharing two fabulous, patriotic tablescapes by my talented friend, Bonnie. Bonnie created these amazing table settings recently when she had friends visiting in her home for the 4th of July weekend.

Bonnie welcomed her friends with a wonderful outdoor display. I bet they loved this!

Ok, quit drooling over Bonnie’s fabulous chandelier and come check out this wonderful 4th of July table setting.

Such a festive table! I love it! Now, I ask…could you resist lining up the stripes on the plates with the ones on the place mats? Of course…I would never do anything like that! ; )

I love how you can enjoy the outdoor decorations from inside. That was one of the best discoveries this past Christmas when I decorated all around my front door. I could see much of it from inside my home, so I was able to enjoy it every single time I passed by the front door. πŸ™‚

In the morning, Bonnie greeted her guest with this fabulous Independence Day tablescape in her breakfast room.

Love those champagne glasses! Do you suppose they had Mimosas at breakfast?

Great idea with the fans!

The napkins and napkin rings are awesome…I love it all! Do you see the place cards?

Here’s a close-up. I love that Bonnie combined a beachy, nautical theme with her 4th of July celebrations. Note the fish net tablecloth!


Love the nautical sailboat themed flatware!  Wow, I just found this flatware online for only $26.99 for a 20 piece set. I’ve never seen it go for that price. I know I paid way more than that when I purchased it. You’ll find it available here: Nautical Sailing Flatware

Darling salt and pepper shakers…

Love the candle holder swimmers in their vintage swimwear…

Is this not the cutest china? Bonnie…what does the dinner plate look like in the center? Love this pattern! Do you see the cute life preserver votive holder?

One last look…beautiful!

    How fun, to see TWO wonderful patriotic tables! I really love the placecards in the pails — just perfect! I know Bonnie's guests were thrilled with all her special touches.

  2. Christi @ A Southern Life says

    I love anything patriotic! However, my favorite part about the table was that flatware with the little boats. How fun is that?

    Christi @ A Southern Life

  7. Jacqueline says

    Bonnie's home is so super all decked out! And I do mean decked out because the nautical theme is so fun. The silverware is great too and I love that there are two tones of blue glasses. I do love it when you can see the outside decorations from the inside…double whammy! Joni

  8. vignette design says

    Love both patriotic tables. I too am smitten by that silverware! Wow! I'll look it up on Ebay!

  9. You two make a great 'team'! I love the Patriotic theme… it is so festive! I can smell the air full of firecracker dust and toasted marshmallows!
    Thanks for hosting!

  11. Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) says

    Bonnie's tables are full of fun pieces. I would love to be a guest at those tables! The breakfast dishes and the little life preservers might be my favorite parts, at least for this minute! Linda

  12. Lady Katherine says

    How wonderful! I love the flag dishes, place mats, Oh just the whole setting, and yes the Chandy is beautiful. I adore her dishes in the breakfast room too, reminds me that most of us came here to America on a ship, Except for the American Indians. Bonnie 4th is so wonderful! Loved seeing her home!

  13. Red Couch Recipes says

    Bonnie's home is so festive and I especially love the nautical for a patriotic dinner! How fun is the silverware and the blue, both types, of glasses! Joni

  14. I would be so excited to be Bonnie's guest at the shore. Her tablescapes were so creative! What a great celebration for the Fourth.

    Wow, 100 Tablescape Thursday's! That is truly a milestone. I started early because my post tonight is outside on the lawn and I am also named Bonnie. I've noticed three or so Bonnie's out there.

    Susan, you have been so successful and made by introduction to blogging exciting and challenging. I am learning so much from you.

  15. Melissa Miller says

    They are both festive and truly gorgeous table displays! πŸ™‚

  16. These were beautiful! I loved seeing them. I am excited for you and your 100th tablescape post… I think you need a book!!! A dining table book (rather than coffee table, of course)… Your posts of your own home… Magic!

  17. Hi Susan!

    You keep such talented company. I love the tables. thanks for sharing.

    P.S. I voted and love the large images. Thank you for giving my passion tablescapes life. Alofas

  18. Bonnie's tablescapes are both terrific. That flatware is just divine! It is hard to believe that before TT, I didn't care that much about flatware. I thought it was all about the dishes. Silly me! Congratulations on TT #99. I am looking forward to #100. Thanks so much for doing this. It is nice to know there are so many of us that like to tablescape.

  19. SPLENDEROSA says

    How wonderful to have a party celebration for the 100th Tablescape Thursday! What an incredible accomplishment, Susan. And, to have so many loyal followers is an achievement most bloggers never see. I loved your blog how-to post; I'm saving it.
    Thank you for everything, Marsha

  20. Kathleen says

    Barbara did a great job on her tables! I was at CTS SUnday and picked up some cute scape things for 50% off. Can't beat that!

  21. Hi, Susan,
    I voted. πŸ™‚
    Love these two tablescapes. My very FAVORITE thing is those darling little s&p shakers. Love those!

  22. So sorry but I can't get linked with you…again! I don't have a clue why I have so much trouble. So sorry.

    Bonnie's house looks so awesome…
    Wish I had known about the outdoor setting for the 100th…I posted one just a bit ago…bummer..oh, well, I can sure do another….:))

  23. Fifi Flowers says

    LOVE your patriotic table!!!

  24. OK, finally got linked. I think it's heavy traffic because between the times I have tried to link, 3 or 4 new ones were there. ANYway, thanks so much for hosting this amazing meme…xo bj

  25. Thank you, Susan, for sharing Bonnie's wonderful tables with us. Her tables always have great energy and attention to detail. Her photos are crisp and clean as well.

    OK, yes, Lady … I think YOU just might have lined up the stripes on the plates and placemats as perfectly as Bonnie did. That's one of the reasons we all anxiously await each and every table you set for us. We know they'll be perfect … and fun, creative, and festive (or elegant, depending on your mood and theme)!

    Thank you, as always, for hosting. I can hardly wait for next week. Tablescape Thursday #100! How cool is that?

    Warmest regards,

  26. Cabin and Cottage says

    Wow there sure is a lot going on in these rooms! Fun stuff! Thanks once again for giving me an outlet to show all the tables I love to do, and get new ideas! It's a fun time of the week–Jacqueline

  27. GrannySue says

    How lovely everything is. I can't believe it. I have two of those Warren Kimble plates that I got at Goodwill and haven't been able to figure out how to make them work. What an inspiration. And did I mention I LOVE the chandelier. Oh my my. Such a great post. THanks so much.

  28. laurie @ bargain hunting says

    Bonnie has such wonderful tablescaping accessories, and she puts them together beautifully. those s/p shakers are just the cutest, and I love that sailboat flatware. Is that a fishnet over the cloth? How clever. Can you believe you have hosted 100 Tablescape Thurs (and Tues)? It has turned into such a huge Blogville event! Congratulations Susan. Thanks for continuing to be such a wonderful hostess. laurie

  29. Mariette says

    Loving the whole tablescape. The swimmer statues are so precious! There is nothing better than red white and blue for summer don't you think? Oh hey by the way did you ever recieve the napkin rings I sent you? I have been so busy I can't remember if you did or not?

  38. Patriotic and coastal—cute!

  39. Atelier de Charo says

  42. Sue (Someone's Mom) says

    I always love to see what Bonnie has in store for us. Once again I'm not disappointed! I love the dishes…I want them! The fans in the chandelier, such a great idea. Everything is so festive and fun. Thanks again for inviting us to Bonnie's house!

  44. Bonnilynne says

    Susan, thank you again for featuring my tables on your amazing blog! Your readers are so kind and talented – it's such an honor to be featured among them!
    Big hugs to you, my friend!β™₯

  45. Susan, thank you for sharing Bonnie's patriotic tables. Both are charming. Love the idea of the fans in the light fixture. πŸ™‚
    Have a geat weekend! ~ Sarah

  46. Sue at Beach Bungalow says

    Beautiful pictures, Susan. Your blog is one in a million and so are you! Thanks for helping me out this week. I hope you'll drop by Beach Bungalow for a visit.


  47. lulumusing says

    Funny you should show the nautical flatware. I, too, liked it and bought it for our beach house which we have now sold along with most of what was in it. The flatware is one of the things I wish I still had.

  48. Entertaining Women says

    Both tables are completely charming. The breakfast room table caught my eye, in particular. I think that the choice of the two-toned goblet was a brilliant way to create cohesiveness between the water blue in the cloth and the dinnerware alongside the traditional 4th of July colors in the table appointments. I am especially taken with the fishnet topper. The texture and the soft taupe color lift this tablescape to the next level of design, in my opinion. Extremely well done! Thank you for the inspiration. Tablescape Thursday is a total blast for this blogging newbie! Cherry Kay

  49. le 4 juillet la fΓͺte est encore plus belle avec vos magnifiques tables. merci de nous faire partager vos superbes idΓ©es

  52. Miss Janice says

    Hello…I'm just dropping in for a visit! Love the patriotic tablescape…especially the dishes and the chandelier treatment!

  53. Susan, thank you for sharing Barbara’s beautiful tablescapes! I have a few of her elements, but love to see how other people can take the same things and add more and come up with table magic!
    Yes, yes, yes to your doing a book on your tablescapes! I will pre-order one the day you say you have done one! I have learned so very much from your blog and have moved my own tablescapes to a different level. Thanks for all your effort on your blog!

    • Thanks so much, Martha! That’s what I love to, learning new ways to mix and match and use other pieces to create whole new table settings. πŸ™‚

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
