BBQ Red, White and Blue

 Hello, Bloggy friends. I've set the little, red table in the SR with Red, White and Blue.
 My inspiration (besides the 4th) were these cute, little placemats I found at Big Lots. They only had two left. :( Love the yellow rick rack for the mustard.

 So I used my "stuff" to make the place setting. Plates are from a few years back.


I can't remember where I found the retro looking chair votifs, but I did get them this year.

Now, we'll go into the kitchen for some ice, cold watermelon .........................



I'm using my vintage tablecloth that I really love.

Here's my inspiration for this "watermelon" scape. This house "magazine" house is one of my all time favorites for ideas on red, white and blue.

PSSSSST...........................................wanna know a secret? I didn't have time to finish the sunroom in red, white and blue before I published this post, so I just "shoved the yellow and green stuff to one side.

I'm joining Susan's "Tablescape Thursday. Thanks, Susan for all you do! and
"Common Ground" for "Vintage Inspired Patriotic Party".

The Stream Cliff Tearoom. A favorite place to visit.

Beautiful flowers everywhere.  Love the use of the old wash tub for a planter.
