Welcome to the 718th Tablescape Thursday!
I haven’t had a chance yet to thank you for all the wonderful suggestions left on my June 24th post. They were all incredibly helpful. I will do a follow-up post very soon because I think I may have figured out what was causing the issues I’ve been having–more on that real soon. But I just wanted to say Thank You and let you know how much I appreciated each and every suggestion!
I was so excited for this week’s Tablescape Thursday because I love setting a table for the 4th of July! It’s one of my most favorite holidays of the year. We are out on the porch for this week’s party.
I also love bringing out this wonderful flag dinnerware for the 4th!
The pattern is by Sakura and the design is by Warren Kimble. There’s a fair amount of this pattern currently available right now on eBay, including a large set here: Patriotic Flad Dinnerware.
The blue star napkins are surprisingly available again and on sale here: Star Napkins. I purchased mine many years ago so I’m happy to see they are back again. The red, white, and blue check napkins are also available here: Red, White, and Blue Check Napkins.
I pulled out these cute bicycle napkin rings for this week’s table. They were a find in Pier 1 several years back.
Here’s a better view of this wonderful flag dinnerware–love the design so much! The glasses are from Dollar Tree a few years back.
I think the chargers were from Pier 1–been so long, hard to remember. I just found them available in two colors here: Rattan Chargers.
I couldn’t decide if I should go with red flatware or with blue for this table, so I ended up using them both, alternating the two colors around the table.
The cobalt blue flatware is Cambridge Silversmiths Neapolitan flatware. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find it available anywhere online. Hopefully, it will eventually be back again.
Same for the red flatware that’s by Hampton–couldn’t find it in stock anywhere.
I stopped by Publix and picked up one of their small gourmet-style cakes. I love the cakes they create for holidays.
I decorated the outside of my cake cover with patriotic ribbon and four pinwheel napkin rings I made quite a few years back.
These napkin rings were super easy to make and actually a lot of fun!
Here’s a little closer view…I just draped the part of the napkin ring that holds the napkin over the top handle of the cover.
You’ll find a detailed tutorial for making these patriotic napkin rings here: DIY Red, White, and Blue Napkin Rings.
Isn’t this the cutest cake?! It’s the perfect size for a small dinner party or gathering.
I often use these cute red and blue lawn chairs to hold cupcakes, but this year I picked up these yummy Petit Fours in the Publix bakery. The little chairs were a find in Old Time Pottery many years ago. They were actually designed to hold candle votives but they work great for small desserts like cupcakes.
I hope you and your friends and loved ones have a fabulous 4th of July!
Looking forward to all the beautiful table settings linked for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!
