If this table was any more casual and relaxed we’d be lying across it rather than sitting in the chairs. It’s not often that I set up a table in the kitchen unless it’s for a buffet. However, I’m still enjoying the table in the dining room and not ready to take it down.
Charisse and Damion hosted Mother’s Day and they’re also having the family over for the fourth. Oh yeah, I can get used to this! In my previous post I spoke of not going all out unless the kids are home. Baby girl is giving us a chance to rest. My girls are naturals when it comes to entertaining and baking. I wonder where they got that from.
All jokes aside even though the big shindig won’t be at our house I’ll still have my hands in a few things. Of course I’ll bring a dessert. Let me rephrase that; I’m bringing three desserts. The cool part is I’m leaving them at her house. Ha!!!!
The table in kitchen was laid with this checkered fabric from the thrift store. Perfect for the holiday and if I can find a picnic basket reasonably priced I want to set up a table outside. My kitchen table is smaller and square-ish so it doesn’t take much to fill it up thankfully.
This stack begins with the red ruffled chargers from Big Lots, dollar store white plates, and these cutie patootie red melamine plates with the star in the center. I just found these a few days ago at the thrift store of course for 49¢, booyah!!!
I used red napkins and my flatware with the basket weave design. Very befitting for the holiday don’t you think? If memory serves me correct (and it’s questionable these days) the tumblers are a dollar store purchase.
At each setting I’ve placed a nut cup filled with tropical trail mix which I will probably eat when I take this table apart. Keeping it real folks.
I could have sworn I had four of these flag glasses! There goes that memory thing again. More than likely I did and broke two of them. My best option was to use them to hold these mini flags and some theme appropriate straws. Also on the center of the table are these paper lanterns that actually light up plus red and blue tea lights. Tah-da!!!
That’s it for July 4th tables my friends. It’s hotter than a biscuit here and I’m about to pop the top on an icy cold Stella Artois and sit on the deck with a few design and cookbooks. I’ll holler at you later!!!
Sharing this table at the following parties. Please some with me!
