I set the table outside, but the wind was trying to take everything away! And then the light was gone, so dark pics, sorry!

Quilted flag mats and star napkins from Kohl's a few years ago.

Red, white and blue fruit, with a dollop of sweetened sour cream, or you can use vanilla yogurt to top the watermelon and blueberries.

I drizzle the fruit salad with frozen lemonade concentrate or limeade, or both.  It is delicious!  Served in a blue cocktail glass from the so very chic, le Dollar Tree.

July 4th postcardHope you all have a wonderful 4th!

God Bless  America!

    Those placemats are delightful & I appreciate your telling us about putting limeade or lemonade on our fruit. I can't wait to try it!

    I snagged 8 of the blue goblets from DT last week but now you're making me want to run back for 8 of the cocktail glasses, too. GREAT presentation! I'm running out of room to store these things!!! Yikes!

    Hugs & Happy 4th, Honey!

  21. Great tablescape! I love how you have layered the different colored star plates. Very patriotic!

    Your fruit looks so elegant (and yummy) in the cocktail glasses!

    Happy 4th of July!

  22. I hope you have a very happy 4th of July too, Kathleen. If I was where you live I would plant myself on that beautiful beach for the day.

  24. Gorgeous table! I should add that it is picture perfect!

  25. I've come to expect the perfect table from you for any occasion. You didn't disappoint. Hope you've had a great weekend. I can assure you I'd rather be in Maine doing whatever than in Houston. Today, however, was fun but totally without tablescapes!

  33. Dearest Kathleen,

    Your patriotic table is charming and would be so in any lighting situation. I re-read your poem today when I was checking that my links still work in the re-run I posted. Your whimsy and breezy writing style made me smile all over again. Thank you for sharing your time, taste level, and unique talents.


  34. Your patriotic table is charming. The berries with cream are calling to me. I think I'll go to the kitchen and fix myself a bowl. ;-)
