A new find for me.
This pictures portrays both segments of the Declaration of Independence and also segments from the "I Have A Dream" speech by the Rev. Martin Luther King
On a visit to Pennsylvania in 2011 I picked up this bread tray at my favorite place called Wendell August. These are hand forged and crafted at their company as they have since 1923
I've added a bit of red to my plate rack to get in the spirit too!
(3 more pieces from Wendell August are on here too)
I wanted to create a cheerful expression of patriotism, classic Americana and summer vibes.
I was able to collect my own flowers from my gardens.
I've got peonies, salvia, an iris and some lilacs in the bouquet. It smells delightful!
When Susan at Between Naps on the Porch posted a tablescape by her friend Marie I spotted this Uncle Sam in the car. I was smitten by it immediately and was thrilled to find it at Pier 1 (only one left too!)
I mixed my sparkly napkin rings with these red napkins that are adorned with tiny crystals. I chose the rattan chargers to add a little organic matter.
The Diner Checked dinnerware, cherry and red swirl glassware all fit in well with my theme.
I slipped in a piece of Coconut Cream Pie
(we'll probably have apple pie but I had this on hand)!
I found the vase in storage. It was one of my Mother's treasures that she allowed me to take home a few years back. I love the cobalt blue ruffled edge on it.
My centerpiece dish has cherries on it like the red pitcher. When we eat I will use it for serving on and my florals can be easily lifted away. If we have any guests I will take this outside on the patio.
Aren't these salt and pepper shakes cute.
They are another Pier 1 Imports item... as are the scattered glass beads and stars.
I'm hungry how about you!
Thank you for visiting and I hope your Independence Day celebrations will be full of good times and good food!
I will be joining the following parties...
