Let's Hear It For The Red White And Blue!

Celebrating our Independence!

A casual setting saluting the Independence of our Country

I've created a small centerpiece with a pair of flags adorning it

Infuse With Liz
 I chose to use this wire wall basket as a caddy for napkins and straws.  I stuffed some excelsior in the bottom of the basket to act like bedding for the chicken and a there are a few cherries that are tucked in the back.  It's also easy to remove if needed. We serve buffet style most of the time since the table doesn't accommodate much in the way of serving dishes.

Infuse With Liz
The salt glazed coffee cup has been with me a long time.  I spotted it this morning when I pulled out the straws from the cupboard.  Kind of my own "I Heart America" look!

Infuse With Liz
 I rolled the napkins using a taper candle as my form and tied them off with the blue ribbon before I removed the candle.  Notice the cute mini salt and pepper shakers- those were  gifted to me from Kathe @ Kathe With an E last year.  I saw some salt and pepper shakers she had used with a tablescape and commented on how I liked them.   I thought they'd go well with my ear of corn dish and the next thing I know she sent me this 4 pc. set!  
Thank you again Kathe!

 I followed the sales and finally got these melamine dishes from Pottery Barn.  I loved the wavy uneven design.  The placemats and tablecloth are from Kohls (great sale prices, but pretty picked over already).   Red swirl glasses are from Pier 1 about 3 years ago.  They always bring in a festive look to any table!

Infuse With Liz
 I hate to use a flash but this was the only way to get a picture of this corner (it's about to rain here again and it's overcast and kind of dark).  I wanted to add some patriotic accents to the room.  The big metal star was given to me by my sister several years ago  (Cracker Barrel).  The Uncle Sam Nutcracker was from Hobby Lobby earlier in the spring this year.

Infuse With Liz
This jolly Uncle Sam is from last year (Pier 1). I had to put him somewhre- he's so cute!
I used him twice last year once "here" and the other "here"

Infuse With Liz
  Casual and patriotic with a little country flair!

 Let's hear it for the Red, White and Blue!

I have a good recipe shredded beef.  It's an old one from the 60's that my family always loves and it's called Bar-B-Q Beef.  I don't know how to do it in a printable recipe form but I'll put it on another post for Friday in case anyone would like it!

  5. Oh, Liz, I love your crate and chicken! You "I heart America" mug is perfect. Those PB melamine plates are wonderful, with their wavy edges. I've been salivating over their recent stock of melamine for summer. Have you seen it? I don't live close to PB, but I had a chance to comb through every inch on a recent visit to ATL. How I miss that store - and the clearance sales! You country 4th table is so homey and comfortable - and inspiring. :-)
    Blessings!

  12. Liz, your chicken crate is the perfect inspiration for the centerpiece. I love everything you did on this table!

  13. This looks like a photo in a sales circular, Liz! It's great!!! I think when people think of Americana and the 4th and patriotic, this is the look that immediately springs to mind! It has just the right amount of "country" added to it. That was a really great idea for your centerpiece!!!

    So you formed the napkins around a taper? What a great idea, girl!!!!!! They look perfect!

    Your patience paid off on those plates! They have that vintage denim look to them. Very cool!! I like things with that feel to them.

    I have GOT to start going to Kohl's more often! You always find the best stuff there! The tablecloth and placemats are perfect for this setting!!! The tablecloth looks like seersucker from my vantage point. Seersucker is the PERFECT fabric for a patriotic look!!!!!

    Pinning!
