God Bless America-Happy 4th Everyone!

With recent rainy weather and gray skies I decided to prepare my tablescape indoors but plan to move it outside for the 4th.  

I reused the floral arrangement from last week's tablescape.  I centered it and then surrounded it with some hydrangeas.  The placemats are from last year. 

Last week's arrangement

 The white lanterns were on discount from Sur La Table. They hold a tea light in the bottom. 

These cute votive buckets also came from Sur La Table. 
I added a little ribbon on the sides.

I used two runners. The stars and stripes runner is connected with buttons so I put it across from side to side but removed the two end ones and then placed them on top of the navy blue runner. I used the runner last year as seen on the post "here". 

Early evening shot when the sun comes through briefly.  
I don't get a lot of natural light in this area.

Same dishes as last week.

I had planned to tie these outside under the umbrella- we'll see how the weather is by Saturday.

Wishing you all a very Happy and safe 4th of July!

  1. Hi Liz, what a great patriotic display and table setting. Love the plates and the hydrangea centerpiece is beautiful. Sweet little anchor buckets. Wishing you a very Happy 4th of July.
    Hugs, cm

  2. Gorgeous and patriotic display. Love all the details and how you have combined every element for a wonderful tablescape.

  3. Liz, you were the smart one - to just go ahead and set it indoors and if its nice then just move it outside. The weather has been playing some nasty tricks on us lately around here. I like those little anchor plates - I would use those often as well! Wishing you a wonderful holiday weekend, enjoy your 4th!

  4. Liz,
    It looks like most of us are smitten with those adorable anchor plates, they are wonderful.
    Your table-setting looks so pretty and festive.
    Wishing you a safe and happy 4th!

  5. Your tablescape for the 4th looks wonderful! The centerpiece is lovely and the white lanterns are perfect alongside it. If you don't get to go outside, those paper lanterns in your chandelier look great right where they are. We just celebrated Canada Day yesterday but I've been too busy to get my tablescape posted yet. Have a wonderful holiday!

  6. Liz, I love all the cheery nautical touches here! Especially the votive buckets (with the anchor). The red, white and blue/stars and stripes balls on the chandelier are very cute too. Happy 4th!
