Happy 4th of July


This tablescape features a vintage tablecloth with a bold blue and white floral.


The red and blue glasses came from Dollar General. They are similar to an old Avon pattern of glassware.


I doubled the napkins, a white on the inside and a red on the outside. I have seen Pottery Barn do this, and I love it.


I mixed vintage Fiesta with Post-86 Fiesta. The cobalt cake server is one of my favorite vintage pieces.



Yes, Homer Laughlin made a 4th of July pattern. I have 4 cups and saucers of this pattern.


Fiesta vintage cobalt sugar bowl and vintage ivory creamer.


HLC made George and Martha mugs for the World's Fair. These are small, a mere two inches. I found an additional mug (Andrew Jackson) that I don't think is HLC.



Hey Martha!

 

The flatware came from Tuesday Morning.

Fabulous tablecloth! It really grounds the whole setting and defines its character. It's fun that you went with royal and not navy, to shake things up a bit. I did almost the exact same thing with my napkins, and in fact my outer red one is from Potter Barn. Have a look. Enjoy the Fourth!!

I haven't seen your blog before, but it's always nice to meet a new dishaholic.

This table is smashing -- especially the tablecloth and your vintage collections. I did not know HL made any patriotic patterns. I'll bet they are hard to find.

Well done! Your tablecloth is terrific and a great base for the red, white and blue of the holiday! I also like your red and blue glasses (really? from Dollar Tree?) I haven't seen those in our stores. Well done and thanks for sharing......Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
