4th of July Outdoors Tablescape

I'm not a "Tablescaper" by any stretch of the imagination,
but I do like to put together a fun and festive holiday display.


I have "bits and pieces" of transferware, not complete sets, so I grabbed what I had of the blue/red and mixed them up with some standard white vintage plates, to put together a little outdoors soiree.



Whitewashed flower pots with old seed packets hold the silverware



While one of my heavy duty Homer Laughlin pitchers 
holds some daisies and flags






I layered old tablecloths and vintage linens for an extra "picnic-y" feel.







croquet anyone?


Hope you have a fun 4th of July!
We'll be celebrating our younger daughter and her husband's birthdays
with some pool party craziness.


If you haven't entered my Big Book Give Away 
of Carolyn Westbrook's new book, 
"Through the French Door"


Some of you may not know this, but I have another blog, 
My posts have been a little sporadic this year, 
but I'd love to have you come by and visit.


I'll be joining in for these parties:

xoxo,

    Happy 4th! :)

  4. Not a tablescaper indeed. Red, White, Blue, and Vintage per Debra confections always do it for me. We took our crazy selves and the wees to the zoo in this heat today. Needless to say we are toast with a side of brain mush.

  5. This is SO beautiful! I'd say you definitely have the touch when it comes to tablescapes. :-) I love your vintage linens... I have several linens from my grandmother and love using them on the table.

  10. Very pretty, Debra! With the heat we've been having here, I'd probably be outside long enough to take the picture then be running back to the AC! Enjoy your 4th and your birthday celebrations.

  39. I am new to the blogging
    world ( and your site ) and didn't even know what a "tablescape" was until about a month ago :) Yours is quite nice / normal is fine in my world :)

    LOL also...what people nowadays call "Vignettes" my grandmother used to call "Settings" and the other day as I was cleaning up after my grandson had left I was considering doing a "Vignette / Tablescape" photoshoot of a flower arrangement surrounded by construction vehicles :)
