July 4th Tablescape

Loving my July 4th tablescape...Who says you can't mix melamine, glass and plastic together???? 

Joining Kathleen today at Let's Dish http://www.cuisinekathleen.com/
and Debra at http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/ for her Patriotic Party and Jann for her share your cup party http://jannolson.blogspot.com/2012/06/share-your-cup-thursday-15.html



Red plates: Melamine plates found at Walmart for $1.00 each. White glass salad plates I've had for years...a Thrift store find. Silver ware: plastic! (Walmart)Patriotic bows was 2 to a pack for $1.00 from Dollar Tree.



Oh I love how this winded up looking! Compote' turned upside down holding a butter dish! Just perfect to hold my little patriotic bird house don't ya think? And you know I had to use a book of some kind to decorate with! Good ole' cookbooks!


Apples and July 4th just go together to me!


Plastic cups: 88 cents each from Walmart



Another compote turned upside down holding a candy dish to set my candle in.


I love how my centerpiece turned out! I've had the enamel tea pot for a long time and use it a lot to decorate with. Once again old blue came to my rescue when looking for just the right thing to host my centerpiece.



Heart stick came from Family Dollar for $1.00 and bought a pack of flags from there for $1.00


Several years back I found this piece of material after July 4th marked down to 50 cents a yard. I didn't buy much because at the time I figured I wouldn't use it! Well, I winded up with just enough to do two chair covers with which was all I really needed!



And yes, I LOVE the USA!


Found the blue place mats at the Dollar Tree and you guessed it...for $1.00 each! I've had the coasters for several years now but I think they also came from Dollar tree...like 6 in a pack maybe.


Napkins...paper...and yes, I have lots of them!


I hope you have enjoyed my July 4th tablescape! Simple, affordable and yet adorable!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  16. Wow! Cindy you have me singing Yankee Doodle! Terrific tablescape and you've given me some great ideas for a try at this on my own. Actually, as much as I'd love to do these tablescapes I just don't have the space for all the this and thats necessary for a lush design. And - I love a good lush table design with plenty of eye candy!!
    Joy to you!

  22. Hi Cindy, what a spectacular patriotic table!! I think it is very appropriate and practical to use plastic tableware for the 4th meals whether inside or out. They look so much like the real thing now that it is a surprise to learn they are not. I love every detail of the table. Shannon
