Patriotic Tablescape

We're having a low-key July 4th celebration this year.  My mom is coming over to eat supper with us tonight.  Scott's grilling a pork loin and I'm in charge of the sides - corn on the cob and homemade mashed potatoes.  Watermelon is for dessert of course....I can't get enough of it!

Just because it's going to be a small gathering doesn't mean it shouldn't be festive and pretty.  So I pulled out things I already had on hand for several years and the table was ready in a flash :)

The red & white cloth is plastic for easy clean up.  The American flag draped across the middle is also plastic and makes a decorative table runner.

The blue & white plates are "Clearlake" by Noritake.  The Midnight Blue Sweet Swirl glasses are also by Noritake.  I had red cloth napkins conveniently on hand as well. 

(next few photos taken at night with candles lit)
The beautiful white bowl in the center of the table was a find at a silent auction.  I added a little greenery and a couple of small flags and it was perfect!  Four shiny red votive candles provide a little more light.

It's hard to beat the beauty of our country's colors...red, white, & blue

I'm so thankful to be an American!  No matter how messed up things can get here, I still think it's the greatest nation on the earth!  I pray that God will heal our land.

Happy 4th of July!
