Navy, Red and White Table Setting

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!

 

Patriotic Front Porch Makeover

Have you ever had time when you had so many ideas in your mind, but can’t find the energy to actually implement those ideas? That’s where I have been for several months now. But, I am done with school for the summer now, and I am hoping some of the inspiration will come back. I was able to change out the front porch and get it ready for summer!

I love changing out this chalkboard for the different seasons. I wanted things to be a little bit summer and a little bit 4th of July.

I also had to add in a little bit of the nautical look I love so much. This pillow was actually made from a child’s t-shirt.

Lauren made this wreath for me for Mother’s day, just like she made my mom one. Here is the post where she explains how it was done using a pool noodle and flowers from the Dollar Store.

My pillow is missing a button! I wonder which state it is?!

I love these bottles! They look so summery. I used some foam to keep the flags upright.

I at least look like I am ready for the season! Do you decorate your front porch too? I would love to know what you add to look festive! Hope you have a great week!
