Red, White and Blue Tablescape

Red, White and Blue Tablescape

Here in the USA it is time for all things patriotic!  We are decking our porches, our bicycles and of course, setting a red, white and blue tablescape!  I am so happy to once again be joined by a delightful and talented group of bloggers for this nod to the red, white and blue!These rainy afternoons here in central Florida have us planning more meals inside.  Even though we hope to grill out on the 4th, I am setting the table indoors.

I clustered some smaller elements for my centerpiece, including these great wooden words.  I think these mean so much to me.  Freedom and liberty are priceless!

Here we go…there is nothing more to say, is there?



My bicycling Uncle Sam is a new addition this year.  I bought him from Michael’s and look forward to using him for many summer holidays in the future!

I set my table with a Pottery Barn table throw with a tea-stained look.  I set each plate stack on a square jute placemat that I turned on an angle.  Red dinner plates were topped with simple blue and white diner-style salad plates.

Red-handled Pioneer Woman flatware was the perfect complement.  Napkins were both a red and white checkered one and a blue one tied with a piece of patriotic ribbon.  Copy of Spring Tablescape Blog Hop I have really enjoyed gathering together these great bloggers this week for our red, white and blue tablescape blog hop!  If you haven’t been following along, click on any of the links below to get inspired!

  1. Chloe, I love your bicycling Uncle Sam as a centerpiece for your patriotic table! The tea-stained PB throw makes the perfect table topper. I love Lee Greenwood’s ‘God Bless the USA’ and the lyrics on your wooden sign ‘And I’m proud to be an American Where at least I know I’m free’. Thanks for all your organizing efforts for this red, white and blue tablescape hop. It’s always a pleasure to blog hop with you. Wishing you and your family a Happy 4th! ♥

    1. Thank you so much Mary, I really enjoy styling tables and it is so much fun to see what everyone else does for a similar holiday, yet we all come up with different concepts! Thank you so much for hopping with us and a happy 4th to you and your family. Get out there and enjoy your lake!

  2. I very much like how you’ve naturalized the look of our red, white and blue on your tablescape, Chloe. I so appreciate this group of bloggers and the fellowship in our love of tablescaping. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Rita, I appreciate each and everyone of you who have connected with me through these tablescape hops. It is nice to communicate and share with like minded bloggers!

  3. Chloe, I love how you turned your jute placemats on an angle and your tea stained table throw. The bicycling Uncle Same was a perfect addition. I’m learning layering from you and the other tablescapers. I like your pair of napkins coupled together with a patriotic ribbon.
    You have had an extremely busy week. Thank you for all your efforts organizing and executing these bloghops. It is a lot of work. Enjoy your get away!

    1. Thank you Bonnie, I think we all learn from and get inspired by one another! I was happy to have you aboard for another hop!

  4. Chloe, well I am quite partial to your tablescape and especially Uncle Sam in your centerpiece — he is also the centerpiece of two patriotic wreaths I made and shared in the link party last May! He’s so special. I see you all took the tea-stained approach with the tablescape around him as I did with ribbons and embellishments in the wreath. Incorporating the signs was just brilliant! Pinned.

    1. Thank you so much Debbee! That Uncle Sam was too cute not to bring home and he just might find his way to a wreath on my front door next year! Thank you for pinning, and for joining us in the hop!

  5. Happy 4th of July Chloe and what a great blog hop as is the usual with you, my talented friend.
    Your centerpiece of Uncle Sam and his bicycle is adorable….as is the I’m proud to be an American quote. I have that music (I won’t date myself in identifying the exact form of music it is) haha but my twin boys were in the navy together and that song was sung at their bootcamp graduation….love Lee Greenwood.
    The bow is so original on your double napkins…you think of so many important details.
    Hugs and thanks for putting this blog hop together.

  6. I love your bicycling Uncle Sam Chloe! Your table is so much fun, I am loving the angles you used with your table topper and mats, it really adds interest and the woven mats look great with your other rustic touches. The signs are perfect! Love the napkins too…you are 4th of July ready!! I hope the weather cooperates with your cook out plans. Thank you for another wonderful hop, and it’s so nice of Joyce to do the daily collages, they really add interest to other link listings don’t they…

    1. Thank you Jenna! Even if we can’t get outside due to afternoon thunderstorms, my oven does a great job on a beef tenderloin! Yes, those collages are a great addition! I may ask everyone to submit an early photo next time so we can have them from the beginning. Thank you for joining me in another hop! Happy 4th!

  7. Chloe, your table is the epitome of Americana! What a fabulous Red, White and Blue display with that bit of rustic charm to it. I love your napkin treatment, all the angles of the placemats and table runner, and the wonderful signs that mean so much, it all comes together perfectly. Thank you so much for putting together this hop and keeping us all updated, I appreciate all the work you put into this. I hope your weather is better for your 4th celebration! Enjoy!

    1. Thank you so much Ann! I was happy with how my table turned out without too much work, and a lot of re-cycling incorporated! Thank you for joining us in another hop! Happy 4th!

  8. Hi Chloe! I often worry that a red, white and blue tablescape can look “cheesy” but you have shown me that is NOT true!

    I love the quote “I am proud to be an American,” it really touches my heart and this sign is just perfect for the styling that you have done with this lovley table. I love, love, the natural look with softer and muted tones of reds and blues. Of course Uncle Sam is just delightful and the perfect centerpiece. I really need to get some colord flatware it really adds so much to a tablesetting.

    Happy Fourth of July to you and yours!
