I do apologize in advance if I am unable to visit you nor comment in a timely manner but I promise to catch up as soon as I can when we get back.
I am linking with the ever gracious Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Tablescape Thursday.
I see a some thrifty finds on the table so will link with Leigh for Thrifty Thursday at http://lbratina.blogspot.com/
and with Diann for Thrifty Things Friday at http://thethriftygroove.blogspot.com/
I am also linking with her monthly Thrifty Tablescape.
I set the tablescape on the small table in the breakfast nook.
Do you think it is patriotic enough? I think so!
Staffordshire Liberty Blue dinner plates showing the Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
I got 9 of them from Ebay for $23.07 plus shipping of $12.17. I added them to other matching
pieces that I have had from past years.
How d'ya like to eat your salad on the home of George Washington's momma.
I aded the flag just by sticking it into the bucket to complete the patriotism.
The Liberty Bell as you know is inside the Independence Hall. I used to see it a lot when I lived in Philadelphia.
I like seeing the glow cast by the candles.
My centerpiece is just a grouping of red, white and blue with stars items including an egg shaped blue and white Polish pottery S & P shaker.
The flag stands proudly!
The plain blue glass goblets were $1 each from Walmart. To make the table more elegant, I added Bohemian crystal champagne glasses. They are not that thrifty but I think they are reasonable, $35 for 6 of them.
I love the lace tablecloth! It's thrifty too, bought it for $3 from one of the vendors in the store. As John said, it is not having a booth that is the real value there but what we find and buy from the other vendors. Don't you just love the fringes?
