4th of July Tablescape

Today is the last day of June......the summer is just flying by!  

  I am having a pre-4th of July family tomorro as not all of them can come over the 4th.     Nurses, firemen, emt's....etc don't always get the exact day off,   so we celebrate holidays whenever we get a chance.

I added some red white and blue decor to the existing garden  mantel  theme.    When the 4th is over,  I will just remove the holiday decor and the garden mantel will remain until I decide to change it.  

I wanted to give you a close up of the faux greenery tray that I bought over the weekend at a yard sale.    There is a smaller matching one on the mantel.....the two were $3.

I started my 4th of July  tablescape with a garden theme tablecloth to tie it together with the mantel......

Then I added a red, white, and blue quilt......

Herb Garden place mats,   herb mason jar napkins.......

Garden dinner plates,  gold silverware,  and additional napkin in red, white and blue,  and cobalt blue stemware.

I used my George and Martha stemware.......I have a service for 8 of these that I bought at a yard sale a long time ago.

You have to look close to see the face on the glasses.....

I have vintage blue S&P shakers 

I don't have all the place setting on the table yet,   but you get the idea.


If you missed my Garden Mantel is the link to it.....

Have a great day!

  7. What a beautiful tablescape and so perfect for the Fourth of July! Thanks so much for joining us at Share The Wealth Sunday!

  8. WOW! You are such an inspiration and your blog is like a ray of sunshine that sparks my heart. I recently used scrapbook paper as disposable placemats for a tea party; so many themes and colors to choose from and very inexpensive.

  9. Penny,
    LOVE this pretty tablescape!! Perfect for Summer and the Holiday!! I love the cobalt blue pieces! I have only 3 of the same George and Martha Washington stemware...We are celebrating the 4th today on Sunday as it will be easier for me since I have to work the night of the 4th. I am playing catch up...

  10. Penny, your patriotic table makes me smile. I love the quilt made with flag squares, and the blue stemware is certainly a fun addition to your 4th of July table. Happy 4th to you and yours.

  11. After seeing your post about the inside mantal I had to see your 4th of July table. What a great idea about using a quilt in your table design. So creative

  12. Stunning table penny! I absolutely love it.

  13. What a pretty patriotic table, Penny! I love all of the blue glass--thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm!
