For the past few months I have been eyeing a white linen ruffled tablecloth at a local shop at Thanksgiving Point.
I wanted it so badly, but was not willing to pay the high price. I know that linen fabric is pricey, but I just couldn’t do it.
Last Friday was my lucky day. A couple of my friends and I rode over there just for fun. Really not planning on buying anything. They were having a great sale and I snagged the only one they had left.
I couldn’t wait to play with it. I had an Americana topper on my table but I decided that I wanted to Romanticize the Red, White, & Blue. Off came the topper, on went the ruffled tablecloth.
I wrapped a bit of vintage lace around my large chippy white urn.
Pulled out a faux berry topped cake and filled my blue fiesta ware pitcher (a thrift find from my friend, Amanda) with white roses from the garden.
The edges of the roses have turned a bit brown. Not sure what has caused that, but I decided that it just gave them rustic charm.
I love houndstooth and the color red. How could I resist this ribbon found at the same place as the tablecloth?
I love the soft sheer sweetness!
What could be more romantic than a luscious blue Hydrangea planted in the chippy urn? Then I added a beautiful flag, the symbol of our country.
The cute little patriotic cupcake plates were a 50 cent find. Each one is a little different.
Just today my friend, Joyce gave me the cherry garland. I pulled away the chairs so you could get a better look. Wouldn’t want you to miss this lovely ruffled beauty. Hee-hee!
Happy red, white and blue!
psst, don’t tell, but that’s not all I bought.
I will be sharing at these fun parties:
