Red, White & Blue Summer Table


For summer, I like colorful, casual tables.  From Memorial Day to the second week of July, I am partial to red, white, and blue. I started with my cotton blue and white tablecloth with fine red lines.









My patriotic table for 2017 has red dollar store bandannas for place mats, white china, red-handled utensils, and mason jars for drinks.









I folded the blue checked napkins in half into a triangle.  I folded the two points on the sides in and flipped the napkins over with the remaining point facing down on the plates.  I put the cutlery on the napkin and wrapped them with a jute string. I tied a bow in the string.  This would work well if you have a buffet too.








The centerpiece is a red pitcher with white flowers and a small flag on a white plate flanked by two patriotic teddy bears.


















On top of the corner cabinet is a third little bear.








The three bears were a present from a friend a couple of years ago.












Thanks for visiting!

















Let's have fun this summer!

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.
