Farmhouse 4th of July Tablescape

I have the family dining room table set for an early 4th of July supper tonight.      For the 4th,   I have a traditional red white and blue tablescape planned,  but tonight I have the table decorated in my favorite pastel Patriotic decor.

I have pink and cream stripped chargers.......cream and blue dinner plates......

On top of the blue and cream dinner plate,  I have a pink metal scalloped salad plate.  
We are having BBQ for dinner so we'll need lots of napkins,  so on top of the metal plate is the first of many napkins on the!

Here are two cloth napkins layered together,   remember I said we need lots of napkins!   I tied them together with a blue ribbon with white stars on it.....then finished it off with a cotton boll.    
This place setting has a white scalloped and cream dinner plate.....and a pink and white polka dot salad plate.  All four place setting have the same blue thumb print water glasses

I have second Duncan Phyfe  drop leaf table at the end of the main table.   I keep the leaves down and use it as a buffet most of the time.   If needed,  we can put the leaves up and the two tables can be combined to make a long table for 10.   That's just big enough for all of us for now......but....we're gonna have to make room for a high chair pretty soon.   The new great grand will want to sit at the table pretty soon!     

I made my pastel flags from pink and white stripped fabric and some strips of blue and white yard sale sheets.    I just glued the fabric together to make my flag,   then hot glued the flag to some baby crib spindles that I had on hand.    I added some chicken wire to a tall olive bucket and then just stuck my flag pole in the holes.

I ran across some pink sunflowers the other day at Michael's new fall stems.    

I have my sheep paper towel holder as the centerpiece for my Farmhouse 4th of July tablescape.    I told you we need plenty of napkins when we eat!

At the other end of the table is the built in lit cabinet.

I just shared it with you a couple of posts ago,  but I had to make some changes so I thought I would share it again.   I needed the two floral designs in the milk glass vases for a vignette in the kitchen.    I also found a place for the Give Thanks sign that   I had just propped it up there util it found a home.

So,  here is the new ledge on the display cabinet.    I placed a Farm to Table sign under the bed spring flag.....

I replaced the floral design and sign with this vignette......

And,   here is the new vignette on the other side.

I shared the pass thru on the other side of the table earlier too,   but I added metal letters that spell out farm to the existing decor..

All my vignettes are in a CONSTANT state of being!

Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!
