I decorated my front porch Americana on Flag Day.
I have been so busy that I just finished the inside décor on Friday.
As I was decorating the table I noticed that I had unintentionally created a dot to dot.
It started with this:
Poker chip circles I picked up at D.I. for $1.50
Then It continued with this:
Felted wool circle garland. I bought this at a boutique last Spring for $10. Very easy to make. My daughter made one with my wool scraps. If you’ve ever bought wool you know how pricey it is. I figured $10 wasn’t bad for such a cute variety.
And then there was this:
I set my table with my Americana dishes that are only service for four. On the ends I threw in these. I love a bit of a mish-mash décor.
So there you have it, my dot to dot.
Now on to my story.
Our ten year old grand daughter was spending the weekend with us. After church my hubby and I decided to cook her a BERRY special brunch.
While hubby was cooking the pancakes and eggs (he likes cooking breakfast) I prepped the fruit and whipped the cream.
Doesn’t that look yummy?
Only to have her say, “Grandma, I really don’t like berries.” WHAT? how can anyone not like any berries?
Well, to make Grandma happy she put on a few.
I actually caught her looking like this.
“You got cream on your face, you big disgrace!”
Here’s a bit more of the table.
The red burlap tablecloth I purchased at Tai-Pan’s tent sale for $4.50.
I have had these Americana dishes for years. I think I bought them at Mervyns. I swear I have salad plates that match. Who knows, may still be in the cupboard of our Highland home. Hee-hee. Our son rents it. I’ll have to have him check.
Cherry napkins came from K-mart, $1.29 on clearance. I don’t remember where I bought the napkin rings. Have had them a long time. Each flag is a bit different.
My hob-nob white cruet, candle holder, and small tea pot were D.I. finds.
I collect red and white S&P’s. This set is one I got at an estate sale.
Red glasses are from T.J. Maxx. I have a pitcher to match, but it is doing décor duty. Most all the other plates and bowls came from T.J. Maxx also.
Berry lover or not, I think our Grand daughter Jordyn enjoyed her meal!
She looks pretty stuffed to me, wouldn’t you agree?
