Flag Day


When I was at the cabin a few weeks ago, I bought this fun patriotic tablecloth.  While Bob was mowing and chopping wood, and being very productive, I hauled the few things I had out to the deck and played with the dishes.

 I bought this cute couple while shopping with my sister.



I don't have fancy dishes at the cabin ~ but what I do have is red and white.  I brought our old set of everyday white dishes up and then bought these plastic red dishes.  I don't use paper plates much.





This little box has a surprise inside.  




I love this wagon I found a few years ago ~ perfect for the deck.  I hope my flowers are still alive when we go back in a week or so!



~ A peaceful setting ~

What a cute patriotic table. That table cloth is perfect. Is it new or vintage? I love to put together patriotic tablescapes, so this table truly makes me smile. Thank you for sharing. ~ sarah

Everything is just perfect to me. I love the setting, and the wagon with the flowers, and especially the table. The cloth may be new but it has that great vintage look that I love. Your dishes are fun, too. Now you make me want to set a patriotic table!

Mary, Looks great!!! Have someone water those flowers for you. In NC they would NEVER make it for a week!!

Thanks for the comment on our Cousin Camp. They all got to my house on Monday morning. I had the back yard set up with 4 blow up pools. A small one for the baby and a medium one for the toddlers. The two bigger ones for the 3-5 year olds. We also rented a bouncer/slide and have a playhouse. They played while their moms went inside to make their lunch plates. (I had ordered a nugget tray from chick fil a. I cut up fruit early that morning and had chips and dip.) We all ate outside on picnic tables. They spent the afternoon playing while we all chatted and refereed fights!:) Then we ordered pizza for dinner. We dressed them in their Cousin Camp tees and took pics before heading to the park. When we returned I put them all in the tub and bathed them and their moms took them one at a time to put jammies on. Then bedtime! Tuesday morning I sat out breakfast...Danish, cereal, fruit and yogurt. Juice and coffee. They ate as they got up. Then we headed outside to the jumper before putting on swimsuits and heading to the pool that we belong to. We spent the afternoon there and had lunch there. They all left by supper time. Two days seems short but let me tell you, it was a LOT!!! Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions. Last year we did a lot of cooking and it was TOO MUCH to try to do. This year I made the food very simple and it was so nice!

You have created a very sweet and patriotic placesetting. I love the little star shaped dishes. And that wagon is so adorable. You've inspired me to pull mine out of the basement this weekend!
