Happy 2013 Independence Day!

Happy Independence to you all!
 
We are spending the 4th of July in Park City, Utah, but I set the  breakfast nook table for the sake of our friends watching the house while we are gone and took pictures before we left.
 I used mostly Polish Pottery with stars on them.


 The octagonal pewter like charger plates is from Pottery Barn on clearance.
I used vintage pewter flatwares to blend.



 
Stars and stripes votive candle holders.

I bought the stars and stripes cart from a yard sale for 10 cents.
 Polish pottery wine glasses and the blue taller stems are from Mikasa.

 I added the flag in honor of our brave soldiers.

Thank you so much for coming by. I hope you all have an enjoyable Independence Day. Thank you to our brave and fallen soldiers who  protects and protected us and our country.Thanks also to our hostesses.

OK, my favorite part of this table is the set of octagonal chargers. Those are so different! I also love the whole place setting and the centerpiece.

Hope you're having fun in Utah! I guarantee the weather is nicer there than if you were at home!

Well that is an interesting place to visit. I have never been there and I am anxious to hear about it. Your table is so pretty. I don't usually think of that pottery as patriotic, but it looks perfect and I just love that deep blue shade. Have fun!
