I decided to share this thrifty tablescape from last years 4th of July again with all of you and join Diann's Thrifty Tablescape Party!  It is one of my favorites!  Enjoy!

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
Join Diann Here and show us your Thrifty Tablescapes!   

Enjoy your holiday weekend everyone!

Love your flag pinwheel and all your fabulous red, white and blue. The little pitcher is so cute...isn't the longest yard sale the best?

Happy 4th of July!
So many wonderful details to this tablescape.
I have to mention the rubber duckies - so cute and unexpected on a table.

Every time I hear about the longest yard sale I gets pings of wanting to go - today! Right now!
Well, some year.
I know I will at least get to our version along the Mississippi River some year.

Cute table! I love that table runner and your plate stand. Sweet touch to add the red ribbon to your white napkin rings. I might have to "borrow" that idea in the future.
