After enjoying our Family’s Favorite Tablescape for Father’s Day, I knew I needed to get with the program for July Fourth coming soon. I don’t think I’ve ever posted two tablescapes in one week. But, now’s a good time to start, right?
We’re eating our meals inside these days. With the recent heat, we’re not doing much porch-sittin’ and alfresco dining. I decided to set our July Fourth table in the breakfast area.
There are no stars and stripes, but we have all the necessary colors.
I pulled out the Rooster platter and French Country plates in blue and white – both Tuesday Morning finds from last year. I found the butter keeper at T. J. Maxx earlier this year.
I keep a half of a stick of real butter in this keeper. It provides soft, spreadable butter when needed. I learned last year that it’s good at room temperature for up to a week.
The salt and peppers came from Painter Artist Mom’s collection. She loves that deep red color. The pitcher was a discount find at Kohl’s after Christmas a couple of years ago.
I transformed the plain red Dollar Tree tins and will share that how-to soon. Aren’t they fun?
They make perfect holders for utensils and cloth napkins (from 2 Easy Ways to Sew Table Linens).
Cobalt blue plates work well over the French Country dinners. Slightly larger dinner plates peek out beneath for a touch of red – all on top of white DIY Dollar Tree Chargers.
I found the cobalt iced tea glasses at an antique mall Mom 2 and I frequent. We have so much fun on our ventures. She’s a real doodle!
I made one slight change to the French Country Plate Shelf. The plates are now blue for a simple blue and white look. I guess I should change the tea towel, eh?
So, we’re all set. Happy fourth of July!
What are your plans for July Fourth? Anything exciting, like fireworks?
