TeaTime Shows Patriotism

I have a lot of Polish pottery and I am having so much fun mixing and matching them. Since it is almost Independence Day, I thought I would use it for this tea table.

The pitcher is perfect with its stars and stripes. I cut some flowers from the bushes by our mailbox to put in them.

 My teapot warmer has stars and stripes too.

I am not sure what the bushes are called where I cut these flowers from but I think they are pretty in that pitcher.

 I love the effect of the sun rays shining on the red candle.

I found this  plaid material from Ross a long time ago and just kept it a cabinet in the laundry room. I thought it was really cheap, $8.99, and it even came with smaller one which I used for a runner here. When I bought it, I was thinking of laying it on the grass for a picnic since it is so thick. I love the texture of the material. I think it will good for the beach too.
 It is rectangular and I placed it diagonally on the table.

Christine, you Polish pottery is perfect for celebrating the 4th. I only have one small piece that I purchased over 30 years ago. Would love to find some of the pieces with the stars and stripes. What a statement they make!

Beautiful pottery, Christine! I also love whatever flowering stems those are that you cut. I have no clue what they might be, but I really like them! I hope you and your family enjoyed a safe and fun holiday!

Who would have thought the Polish pottery would make such a perfect fourth of July table! I love it with the red accents. My daughter chose the same pottery when she married, but now she's gone totally French country and was going to sell the other. I jumped all over it!
