I love anything red, white, and blue. Make it a holiday where I get to decorate using those colors and it's just the icing on the cake for me. I store my linens and decor in totes based on holiday or color themes. So, yesterday afternoon, I pulled out my red, white, and blue tote and put together this Memorial Day tablescape.
Gosh, it's pretty ;)
I guess I'm still in a beach frame of mind since our vacation so I pulled out my enamelware lobster plates for the place settings.
Added a blue and white cloth napkin and the mason jars that I painted (idea found here) and the table was set.
I purchased the buntings from Old Time Pottery many years ago. I dreamed of using them on my front porch. I didn't quite think it through when I bought them because our front porch has arches and hanging the buntings in the arches just looked wonky. More like pathetic. No matter because I found another use for them yesterday.
The last thing I added were some flowers to my metal tool box. Did you know red geraniums are the most popular color? I didn't either. I took me going to three stores to find red. I was obviously behind the holiday-weekend-planting-crowd. I used two red geraniums, two white wave petunias, and one blue lobelia. One lobelia because it was the ONLY blue plant left. Yep, behind the crowd.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
