I just love a red/white/blue table this time of year. Not only do we celebrate Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the Fourth of July right in a row, but the blue hydrangeas are just begging to be featured on a dinner table.
This table is colorful but super simple.....no placecards, napkin rings, or even salad forks. It's just right for a simple, rustic supper with friends. I'm suggesting it for Flag Day, June 14th.
Here's the placesetting. The tablecloth and napkins are from a lovely little shop in Woodstock that has unfortunately closed. The background is not white, but a really pretty cream. I had heavy Belgian linen pillows with these same stripes, but I left them outside on the garden chairs and not only did they get moldy, they faded terribly in just a few days. That was a huge disappointment. They went in the trash.
The charger is bleached wood and came from World Market this spring. The red plate is from Ballard's, the cream one is from Target, and the blue bowl has no marking and is so old that I have no idea where I got it.
This flatware is the same story...real old...can't remember. Probably K-Mart or something.
And these glasses are also too old to remember.
The centerpiece is one of three that I had left from a reception at church.
Just hydrangeas and hosta leaves in this cream footed pot. I had about 14 of these from our older daughter's wedding. I'm sure glad that I bought them and gave them to the florist, as I have used them over and over and over.
Frenchie, the canvas and metal cow holds salt and pepper and it makes me so happy to use her. You can read about our love story here.
Are you feeling patriotic? I should add sparklers!
