Party Like It's 1776

It's time to celebrate Independence Day.   I cannot believe we are half way through 2017.   2017 is flying by way too fast!    Have a safe Fourth and enjoy the holiday with your family and friends.   

Independence Day Tablescape 

The red, white and blue spray napkin rings and place cards.   The napkin rings were purchased at Pier One last season and they are currently in stock again this year.  

I found these cute Uncle Sam dog toys at Petsmart a few weeks ago.   I originally thought I would use them as napkin rings, but changed my mind and decided to use them as place card holders.   The little wooden rocking chairs were purchased at The Country Store in Welcome, NC a few years ago on a visit home.  The toys fit perfectly in the rocking chairs.  I inserted a flag cupcake topper inside Uncle Sam's jacket.  

I purchased the Pfaltzgraff American flatware at Tuesday Morning.   They are also available on Amazon

I found this patriotic house at Goodwill a few years ago. It lights up and is very nice at night. 

The fireworks centerpiece is made out of pool noodles.  I hand painted the flag on white poster board then glued it to the pool noodles.   

The plate stack.   The red charger plates are from AC Moore.  The Catalina Medallion dinner plates are available at Replacements Ltd. The white salad plates are a thrift store find.   The flag plates were found at AC Moore many years ago.

The Isaac Mizrahi patriotic tablecloth is from Home Goods last year. 

Happy Fourth!
