Am I the only one struggling these days to keep up with posting? Finally decided I needed to post some July 4th pics from my dining room table! Decided this year to do something very simple, light and yet fun. I made things simple on myself with my red, white & blue! Decided to begin with a simple cheap place-setting. Bottom plate is the camper's blue ironstone...Bought a bunch at GW back in Feb. Then just your simple paper red plates from Dollar tree. Patriotic square paper plates from Dollar Tree and my white glass saucers from GW. Of course the napkins came from Dollar Tree as well.
Napkins were cloth (4 to pack for $2) Walmart and my silverware was mixed-matched pieces.
Found this red pretty candle holder at GW for $1.99 and had the white candle already.
Wanted something a little different for centerpiece so took a plastic bowl and plastic plate I bought at Dollar Tree (Red), A glass candlestick I had so painted it white and glued the pieces together. One week I had nothing but apples in it, one week was filled with the patriotic Debbie Cakes, one week peppermints and well you get the idea! Needless to say my grandbabies loved it cause they never knew what the cute centerpiece would have in it for them! The placemat it is setting on came from Dollar Tree as well.
Had to have a Patriotic Star...Hung on my back door knob.
Since I have only 2 chairs at my table--and two benches, decided to put the cute little bows on the back of the chairs.
Used red and white plastic cups. Coaster also came from Dollar Tree. Added a few more candles and it was very simple and the grandbabies loved it.
Hope you've enjoyed my belated 4th of July tablescape.
