Tablescape #48 - 4TH of July Country Style

Hello everyone.  This week is going to be a busy one for me. 
 I have some fun 4TH of July posts and a little visit to Oahu.
I love to entertain on our patio.  Our family loves the comfortable swing and, the candles glowing in the evening while we visit about the GOOD OLD DAYS!
We live in rural America and 
I want to
share with you a country 4TH of July 

The inspiration for this tablescape came from the four dessert plates
 I bought at Tuesday Morning a few months ago. Open-air dining is a rite of the season, combining the casualness of a picnic with the convenience of a close-at-hand kitchen.

The old red, white, and blue can take many forms on a tabletop steeped in nostalgia.
The Shasta Daisy is the perfect flower for Summer.  I uses this red enamel coffee pot in our RV
 and when we sold it, I started using it as a vase. 

The patriotic theme is so fitting with these four plates.  
As Americans we love our freedom. 

Peace in the world is the goal desired.

The definition of Glory~is a state of great splendor, magnificence or prosperity.

We are so proud of our liberty we have in America

"The Founding Fathers made an appropriate choice when they selected the bald eagle as the emblem of the nation.  The fierce beauty and proud independence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom of America."

Summer afternoon-
summer afternoon...
the two most beautiful 
words in the
English language.

If the outside temperature reaches triple digits it's time to come into the house.
