THRIFTY 4TH OF JULY!


Here is a 4th of July Tablescape
Red, White and Blue
I used $1 blue place mats from the dollar store
Large Red plates as chargers bought at the thrift $1
I  layered a white Pfaltzgraph plate 
and a white with blue flower edge salad plate
Both bought at thrifts & pulled from my dish closet
 Dark blue napkin in a white napkin ring
I added a red ribbon to add another touch of red
I found this table runner at a thrift new with tags
from Kohls!  Love all the stars!
 I used my brand new plate rack bought for less then
$3 at World Market!  I had a $10 gift certificate from the store for my Birthday and this was $11.99 + tax 
I added three plates to the rack to decorate
A cute tin star on top
A blue berry candle(gift) and rubber duckies($1)
Cute bowl 
This white ironstone soup tureen was found last week at the Goodwill!  Also found this little blackboard!  It would have been even cuter if I could have found my chalk!
Flag Pinwheel 
I found this vintage juice pitcher last year at the longest yard sale
 matching juice glasses
Salt & Pepper shakers
I added red handled silverware 
and blue water goblets
Everything on this table was thrifted or bought
as noted for very little money
Wishing you all a Happy 4th of July

I am joining in these fun parties


Suzanne at Colorado Lady

Hope Everyone has a wonderful and safe Holiday weekend!


Always,
Linda

Hi Linda,
What a lovely July 4th tablescape. You went all out. Now, is the family going to be eating at that gorgeous table?

Also, I want to ask you how to post those numbers to the side of the comments. Sure would make it easy for giveaways!
