Let's Celebrate our Independence Day! (T)

Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light….What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming….Who's broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous light….O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming….And the rockets red glare the bombs bursting in air….Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there….

Time for some Independence Day Celebration!

The coffee mugs were found at T.J. Maxx as well as the crystal glassware- both by Ralph Lauren.  This year Pier 1 has these melamine flag plates that looked so close to the mugs I decided to get some.

I created the display with a flat styrofoam piece cut in a circle- then split it in half and carved out a half circle on each side so it would fit close to the center.  I used a toothpick on each side pushed in the middle horizontally and then squeezed them together and that worked great.  Then I staged the flags and pinwheels on it and stuffed the shredded paper around it (firmly applying it to stay in shape) and then gave it a trim. 

This two tier tray can be just decorative like with the stars below or

filled with desserts...

The blue (never used) cotton rug with white stars was from Hobby Lobby last year and I displayed it on my dining table as seen "here"!  I have a new design on the dining table this year that I need to take pictures of.

Strawberry flavored cupcakes with cream cheese frosting- yum!

 You may have noticed off to the side I set  up a little display on the plant stand with some glittery sparklers and a tin bucket style candle holder.
The big sparklers are from Michael's this year and the little ones I put together last year with a red ribbon.  

Old Glory, the flag of the United States
Long may she wave….

Wishing you a Happy Independence Day
God Bless America
