July 4th Tablescape 2012

Hey Yall!  Are you ready for July 4th entertaining?  

I certainly hope so cause it's just around the corner now.  I am soooo ready!  Not only am I ready for the fourth of July but I've also been collecting a few goodies to share with you too.  I hope you enjoy!

I pulled together a few things I've collected over the last few years and added in a few new finds as well to create this setting.

I've had the red watering can for a few years now and decided it would be perfect with a patriotic bow.

The blue calico plates from Queens were a purchase from TJ Maxx two years ago.

I then topped them off with my Lenox salad plates.  Then I added melamine star plates found this year at Michaels.  So cute!!! 

The festive bowls I also found this year from Target on the $1.00 isle.  They were a must have item!  Can't you just imagine enjoying ice cream in these? 

My new flatware purchased from work, Stein Mart just sparkles!  Get it?  Sparkels!!!!

Speaking of sparkling, my iridescent blue goblets have a nice sparkle too!  They were a nice yard sale find a few years back.

The painted metal star napkin rings sure could use a touch up.  LOL!

These cute little pails were found at Target this year on the $1.00 aisle as well.  I filled them with corks and a candle to add a little ambiance.  

Salt and pepper shaker from Family Dollar last year for only $1.50.

And finally my flowers were purchased this year at Michaels on sale for only $1.00 a bunch.

Well that's how it all came together for me!

Looking forward to celebrating with family and friends this year when time permits.
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful 4th too.
