Hello friends, once again I find myself surrounded by talented tablescapers. Chloe, my bloggy friend, and blogger at Celebrate and Decorate has gathered all of us together for a Patriotic Tablescape tour (tablescape blog hop). I am so happy to be included again. True confessions- I had something completely different in mind when I originally thought of a design for this patriotic theme. But, like life, things take us on different paths. So it’s no surprise this one changed for me. I’m not 100% sure it qualifies as a tablescape. Maybe a Patriotic Table Setting that Hopes to be a Tablescape one day.
If you hopped over from Follow the Yellow Brick Home, welcome!
I try to use what I have at home for tablescaping ( again not sure this is one) and crafting too. But this time, I went through my holiday stash and realized…. I don’t really have one for patriotic themes. I am a woman bereft of Patriotic stash. Fear, not my friends, I went to the local Michaels and found a few things to add to my minimalist table setting.
Let me tell you a little secret, see the cute napkin rings? They are hair ties! Umm yes, a new uses for old things for certain.
I had hoped for large red or white plates but they were out. They had these little red ones so in the cart they went, then I found the stars and stripes plates. I paused and thought of how many rules may be broken by combining so many patterns… Pause over and into the cart, it went, along with those two cute pinwheels tucked in the carnations.
Hubby loves ice cream sundae’s, I say “Eat dessert first”, it’s one of the best parts of being a grown-up. I was really craving some of my almost sugar-free oatmeal apple bombs ( recipe is HERE) when I started putting together this tablescape (wink). So It’s a dessert table setting..see, what I did there, that’s right.
I didn’t make the bombs but the sundae sure looked yummy.
I turned the table a little catawampus so I could have the flowers and garden in the background. You can see I used the DIY 4th of July tablecloth I shared on Tuesday HERE.
As you can see, this tablescape is all about minimalism and keeping things casual, and having very few dishes to wash never hurts ( wink).
I couldn’t put ice cream in the sundae glasses, it was 88 degrees when I set this up, so it was melting very quickly. The truth is the frosting was even beginning to slide off of the cookies a bit.
Okay, it’s time to move on to the next tablescape on the list, please hop over to My Thrift Store Addiction and see her Patriotic Tablescape. I hope you’ll visit them all. Please leave comments, they are the kindest thank you for sharing gift you can give a blogger.
