Patriotic Tablescapes

I was perusing the internet for a little 4th of July tablescape inspiration.  Wow...are there some wonderful ideas for any Yankee Doodle Dandy table.  Let's take a look!

I love the blog Between Naps on the Porch.  She has a gift for setting a beautiful table.  This one is set with solids of red, white, and blue.  The tall lanterns also lend a patriotic flair and really make the setting cozy.
I love the entire setting in this photo from The Gathering of Friends.  The house and yard phtograph beautifully.  Those red chairs really pop! Looks like a great place to entertain and watch fireworks.
Tampa Homebody has incorporated some of my favorite glassware into her table setting.  American Fostoria and blue Cape Cod glass make this a festive display.
Doesn't this make you want to pull up a chair?  The centerpiece is simple, but quite lovely.  I am crazy about checkered prints.  Super cute from Stone Gable!
This is just precious.  Croquet anyone?
An Accomplished Woman has combined polka dots, solids, and plaids for an adorable patriotic tablescape.
Isn't this centerpiece adorable?  The Style Sisters have incorporated a red trike into their centerpiece.
Hands up...who thinks this is a winner?  What a great way to decorate a table! I can imagine guests lingering over the decorations before picking up a plate and hitting the buffet line.
Not everyone will have patriotic dinnerware, but Between Naps on the Porch has a terrific set.  I like her attention to detail.
Here is another sweet table setting.  I like her use of transferware along with an interesting white under plate.
Lastly is a patriotic table setting from Still Woods Farmhouse!  I decided to use my Reading Room table for my tablescape.  It's a cozier setting than the formal dining room and the dark navy walls add to the patriotic decor!  I have the table set for a scrumptious 4th of July breakfast with my guys.  Everything on the table I grabbed from around the house.
The table is set with red chargers, Pfaltzgraff Heritage white stoneware plates, Cape Cod blue glasses and plates and American Fostoria juice glasses (love those!).  We collect nutcrackers and Uncle Sam always shows up for the 4th of July.  Why don't you join me for breakfast and  then we can linger over coffee on the front porch?
I hope I have given you a little inspiration for your own patriotic table setting. If you look around your home, you probably have wonderful pieces that can be incorporated into a patriotic tablescape... without breaking the budget. The main thing is to enjoy family and friends and to thank God for His many blessings including our precious freedom.

    1. Congratulations Deb! My mother had a carotid endarterectomy on Monday and at lunch, I met several of the RN's my sister taught. They were completing a two week orientation and were so fresh faced and eager! I thought of veteran nurses like you and the ones taking care of my mother. I saw the "circle of nursing" in one day! I bet you are looking forward to July 26th! Thanks for visiting. Come back later today or tomorrow. I am sharing a fabulous homemade ice cream recipe just in time for the 4th!
