It’s almost July! How did that happen? Here in the states we are getting ready for Independence Day, or 4th of July. One of the best memories I have was, from 1976, the U.S.A.’s bicentennial year. We went to Disneyland that summer, and what a firework show they put on. I remember the amazing parade and all the red, white and blue. If you can believe it, we even camped in a truck and camper in the parking lot! That was a long time ago!!! We have been to Disneyland many times since, but there has never been a firework show quite like the one in 1976.
I started this tablescape with the traditional white tablecloth and then layered a navy and white table runner across the middle and then a place-mat at the edge of the table.
I layered the plate and bowl, starting with a white and red metal plate at the bottom and then adding a white bowl on top. I placed a blue cloth napkin between them.
I love these little navy bags from Target. It’s fun to put a special little treat in them for visitors. Succulents in little white pots and layered on wooden blocks give the table a summery feel.
I added this fork stamped with U.S.N., United States Navy. Love it! It’s fun to use a little something special on the table.
I’m ready for the fourth or any summer get together! Thanks for stopping by today!
