{July 4th Tablescape}

 I decided to go ahead several weeks ago and do a little 4th of July tablescape so I could actually enjoy it. But...here July 4th is right around the corner and I feel like I have just put my dishes out!!! Half of 2016 is gone!!! Can you believe that?

Found this cute basket at Walmart and spray painted it red. Also found the cute flowers there as well. Simple but cute centerpiece . 

Don't you just love using little boxes for things? They are so versatile.

I always love the opportunity to use my red dishes when I can.  


Simple centerpiece on a burlap runner. 


I wanted to incorporate my grandmother's cups and saucers into the red, white and blue theme for July 4th.


Worked out great with my red chargers from Hobby Lobby and my white plates which was either a yard sale or thrift store purchase I can assure you. (LOL)
 


YEP really simple...




I forgot I had made this cute little wreath last year but I'm glad I found it. 



A little more patriotic going on.........You gotta have an apple somewhere in the midst of July 4th!


Found this cutie at AC MOORE. When I went to check out the cashier told me it was marked down to $5!!! WHAT? I paid for my purchase and went back to grab three more for my three daughters and needless to say there was NONE left!


But, if I don't keep an eye on this it will go missing....I have one daughter and I am not calling any names....but Melissa loves to think what is MINE is HERS! LOL! 

God bless America....Land that I love!



And....I had this sweet grandgirl ALL TO MYSELF for a little while recently! I did not have to share her with anyone!





And...I just had some Nana time with these two sweethearts.


It just doesn't get any better than your family! 


 So what kind of plans do you all have for July 4th? Whatever your plans may we remember to ENJOY and make lots of MEMORIES!

A friend said once......."Remember to make lots of memories because one day they will keep you company".

Joining Jemma today for Thoughts of Home.

  4. Cindy the girls are adorable. I can't believe how much the baby has grown. Your table may be simple to you but for me that would be a lot. But remember, I do good to drag out a paper plate much less all those cute things. LOL!

  5. Love the tablescape and how you mix and match everything! My kind of decorating. I also love to decorate patriotically over the summer. Grandbabies are all so cute! Lucky you getting some one on one time with the littlest! We usually go to our town's parade and barbecue on the 4th.

  6. Your tablescapes are ALWAYS beautiful. Love all things patriotic. Wouldn't it be so much fun to get together and craft? We'd be laughing and crafting and praying...and I'd be hogging that sweet baby girl if she was there. 😊 Happy Wednesday, sweet Friend.

  8. Hi sweet Cindy! Oh, my! Those little girlie grands are just too adorable! I still can't get over the tiny one's head of hair! :) Your tablescape looks wonderful. Your little box is so sweet, I think I need one of those. Your flowers the dishes just all of it. Oh, we have an AC Moore here too. I'm enjoying shopping there. Thanks for popping in to see me.

  11. I LOVE everything!! That sign for $5.00? That is a steal...you hit the jackpot Cindy! We will be doing a BBQ and then heading over to the local park (it is walking distance from our house)to relax and watch the fireworks display. The pups will be home in their crates where they feel safe from the loud noises!! Your baby grandgirl gets cuter by the day :)

  14. Beautiful ideas for the fourth, Cindy! Love those charger plates. I get a kick out of your daughter walking off with your things. I'm interested in the burlap runner. What are the dimensions?

    1. Thanks so much. The burlap runner was given to me by my niece but she bought it at Walmart. Look on the wedding aisle. When she bought them she got some with lace and some without and gave me some of each. I love using them.

  30. Wow, you have been busy! Love your patriotic decor. I haven't done one thing this year! We were on vacation a week then at our son's family for a week and I have just gotten home. I agree there is nothing greater than being with your grands.
    Yours are growing. The baby has really grown. She'll have hair down to her waist by age 2.
    I'm going to look for those chargers. I like the shape. Hope they still have them. Did you get them this year? I already have some red ones so maybe it will be a good thing if they don't have them. I'm out of storage space. LOL!

    1. Thanks Bonnie. That youngest grandgirl has not lost one ounce of her hair either! I actually bought the chargers last year on sale. So glad I remembered I had them! LOL! I loved the shape too and I already have red ones too but couldn't resist.

  32. Your July Fourth tablescape is perfect! I love everythig you've put together. The most special are the cups that belonged to your grandmother - what a special treat to have them. Your little grand is absolutely precious! I love the shutter piece. You've given me an idea for my vintage trailer. I have a shutter that needs some work and I didn't know what to do with it but a friend gave it to me to make a sign for my trailer. Ah ha! Now I have ideas!
