Patriotic Dining Parade!

Welcoming July 4th, Our Independence Day celebration with my annual "parade" on the dining table.

For several years now I've been creating a little parade on the dining table.  Each year it's a bit different.  The addition of the new placemats really wowed it up!  Below are links for previous years.

Early evening the sun shines in low enough to highlight things at the dining table.  

Love how the sunlight enhanced the sparklers to look even more real!

In the kitchen I added a new tray I bought in Pennsylvania.  I decorated it with the Uncle Sam on the bicycle I used for the tablescape "here" and added some more festive decorations!

Welcome to Home and Gardening With Liz. I have combined my previous blogs “Infuse With Liz” and “Sit With Me In My Garden” into this new blog. I love interior decorating and gardening. I enjoy redefining interior spaces by moving things around and reusing decorative items already found in the home. I also enjoy creating tablescapes and an occasional crafting project. I'm so pleased you've stopped by. I invite you to follow me and I do hope you will keep coming back! Liz
