Happy Fourth of July! 

Our chosen day to celebrate our independence should always serve as a reminder that Freedom is far from being Free.
Now it seems more than ever that we need to recognize the sacrifices made by so many people.

With the beginning of July, I want to celebrate by adding some patriotic decor.

I found a cute little flower arrangement at Pier One that fit nicely under my bell jar.

I used it as the centerpiece for my dining room table. I used red, white, and blue fiesta ware and added some patriotic salad plates.

I located some placemats, napkins, and table runners at Kohl's.

I topped it off by adding some candles, and firecrackers from Everything for a Dollar store.

The breakfast table was decorated with blue and red fiesta ware and a vintage milk glass plate

We were happy to have some old friends over for visit. Our lunch consisted of, Italian roast beef sandwiches, guacamole dip, and a banana split dessert.   

No surpise. Hotdogs were served later on that day.

A Forth of July favorite of mine is the tasty watermelon.

Baked a lemon pound cake for breakfast coffee.

Displaying red in my kitchen this month.

Kirkland's had this cute centerpiece that I just had to purchase to decorate the breakfast table.

 Uncle Sam is standing watch on the stove mantle.

Hope you have a great 4th.
Thanks for stopping in.

  1. Looks like you have done a wonderful job decorating your home for the 4th! Your tablescape is fantastic! I just saw the Canadian version of those salad plates at Pier 1 and seeing your display, I'm wishing I'd gotten them :( I really enjoyed seeing the food and décor you put out for your guests as well. No doubt, they loved it too. Have a great long weekend celebrating Independence Day.
