Patriotic Color for the Kitchen Dining Area

Adding the red, white and blue in a subtle amount seems to work nicely and I'll keep it going through July 4th.

The melamine anchor dishes were found at Sur La Table last year.  The blue stripe dishes I've used many times.

See the pig!  She cracks me up- found it at Cracker Barrel.  She'll be a part of a seascape table before long.  I'll show her off better then!  I dug through my faux flowers and put together an arrangement for the top.  This metal bucket fits in here so well I decided to keep using it.

A re-arrangement of things that were here before.  A napkin with anchors serves as a doily for the table.

It's that time of year- here's to the red, white and blue!


  1. Hi Liz, love your red, white and blue for the holiday. It will take you right through the 4th of July. The layered plates in your wall hutch look awesome.
    Have a great rest of the week. xo

  2. This is perfect for summer! Not only red, white and blue but the nautical theme makes you think about the beach. I haven't thought much of summer decorating yet. You've got me in the mood now, though!

  3. It all looks so pretty Liz. Love your patriotic plates in the black shelf. They really pop! It will carry you through the 4th. The nautical look is so popular right now. Thanks for sharing this lovely post at DI&DI.

  4. Very pretty! And I love your cute little pig in the bathing suit. I have a pig or two and they seem to make people smile. Sheila

  5. Your red, white, and blue looks very nice for this time of year, Liz. And that cute little piggy is a hoot. I have a pig cutting board that was made by my sister for my Mama. When she passed away it came to live with me. It always makes me smile. Have a lovely Memorial Day, Liz. ♥
