Hooray for the Red, White & Blue!

Independence Day is here, the 4th of July......Commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4,1776.  It is associated it with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, concerts, family re-unions and baseball games.
I set a table in honor of this day.







We even have red, white and blue vodka.  The pink hydrangeas don't go with this theme, however they are striking this year.



Red, white and blue chips, anyone?  I bought the french fry holder at home Goods and the liners at Raley's. The chips I got at World Market.




These are some of our Koi fish we have in the built-in pond.  It's beyond the fish fountain.
 The white plates are American Atlier
The blue salad plates are from Target
The red bowls are from Big Lots
Napkins from the Dollar store
Red Flatware from Ross
Blue goblets from the Dollar store



I hope you all have a fabulous and safe 4th of July. 
Thank you for visiting as always.

  10. Red, white & blue vodka bottle? Seriously??? That's so fun! It's almost 1:00 here, so I suppose I could partake of a bit of that! :-) Great table with a really fun, vivid table covering!!! I love that fabric! It is SO cool that you are able to maintain a fish pond!!! They would either boil like lobster in summer or freeze like popsicles in winter here!!! Enjoy your holiday!!!!!!!

  15. I am so envious of your hydrangea plant -- it has so many beautiful blooms. My plants were just put in last Fall. They have some flowers but nothing like yours.

    Great patriotic tablescape! Enjoy the holiday.
