A Patriotic Table for the 4th!

I decided to set a table for the fourth early so we could enjoy it for a few days. I don't decorate for the 4th but like setting a table. For me, the summer is going by too fast! I love the beautiful, warm days of summer. NOT the really hot ones, but I will not complain about them. It doesn't last long enough for me. So, on to the table: I started with a red, white and blue plaid tablecloth. I then added a blue placemat, white charger, red dinner, white embossed salad plate and the stars and stripes appy plate.
 The flag S and P were found years ago at, I think CTS.
 I had this patriotic bucket so placed a glass vase in it for the arrangement. I used to always have tons of blue hydrangeas to use but not this year:( So I am using the red monarda, , white astilbe, and blue bachelors buttons.
 A red bubble goblet is paired with a blue water glass holding a flag.
 I have a set of them plastic star martini glasses so decided they were the perfect candle holder if I turned them upside down! Necessity is the Mother of invention, right?
 I love these stars and stripes napkins that I found several years ago. Not sure where I got them. The red flatware does not just have to be for Christmas, right?



 My neighbor brought me some left over cupcakes so I added a flag pick. BTW, they were delicious!



I filled the gap between the vase and the bucket with some red fluff. I have a confession to make; The bachelors buttons are faux:)
 I love the red monarda for the 4th, it reminds me of fireworks!
 The fluffy, white astilbe is so pretty, but it fades fast. It turns kind of yellow.






 This morning I even had a patriotic breakfast:):)
 
Thanks for your visit. I have been summarizing the house with my LARGE collection of shells so will be sharing each room next week. Hope you will come back! I hope you all have a beautiful 4th, and take a moment to remember all the men and women who have fought for our freedom. I am so grateful to them all.
XO, Pinky
