Happy Birthday America

Hello friends, it's time for another tablescape blog hop, this one being patriotic.
Since social distancing is in order, I have set a table on our deck off our study.
It has some nice ambiance with the plants and fountain.

Many thanks to Andrea  from Designs Morsels and Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate who are hosting this blog hop.  I hope you get inspired by these lovely tablescapes.

Star and stripes forever.
I am using this plaid red, white and blue tablecloth to start with.  Red chargers hold the blue and white dinner plates.  Patriotic salad plates and bowl sit on top. Cobalt blue goblets along with blue flatware plus the star and striped napkins and cute bicycle napkin ring.

Dollar store star  dress up the chairs for this table set for two.

For the centerpiece, I am using a wide vase.  I added a pretty Patriotic tutu around it to dress it up. Hydrangeas in red, white and blue  are added along with these darling little Patriotic hat picks.

Uncle Sam is riding his bike with the American flag and fireworks.

I made a Strawberry, Blueberry Charlotte cake.
