It is time to be thinking about upcoming patriotic holidays! Here in the United States we will be celebrating Independence Day and in our Canadian friends will be celebrating Canada Day. If you are coming from My Family Thyme, isn’t Lynne so creative?
I used this great tea stained patriotic table throw I picked up from Pottery Barn last year. The aged look of the throw worked well with galvanized elements to create a vintage looking Patriotic Tablescape. This year it is 4th of July on the front porch!
Galvanized chargers were combined with flag-decorated galvanized salad plates also from Pottery Barn. Wood handled flatware seemed like the perfect set to carry through my Americana theme.
These rustic wooden ornaments from Hobby Lobby made perfect napkin rings, and a takeaway for guests.
To keep with my rustic theme, I found these great kitchen towels at Hobby Lobby. Unfortunately they only had two of the pattern above, so I had to alternate these at the table.
Sharing a “behind the tablescape” reality check here… When I decide on a tablescape, I gather the elements that I have on my kitchen counter and try different dishes and flatware together. Somehow a concept comes together for a centerpiece. I had this fun divided galvanized container and felt this table called for plants, not flowers. So…
It had to be two little red bedding Geraniums and two little green ferns. Of course, would you think I could find Geraniums of any size in June in Florida? Not a one at three different places. I finally settled on these sad little Salvia. Even then I must have picked up 40 Salvia plants. I gently shook each one to make sure there were enough red blooms that were not going to fall off to have some red blooms in my photos.
When you “blur” a photo it doesn’t make that sad little Salvia look as bad! But, the little Rabbit’s Foot ferns look really nice and have found a new home planted in my garden.
The dinner plates are Paige by The Pioneer Woman. These are a great pillar of my dinner plate collection, they are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Christmas!
My Pier One table and chairs on the front porch melds well with my rustic Americana tablescape.
