Independence Day Table

This week's table features one of Pat's "bargains" that she couldn't leave on the clearance rack.

Here's the plate that Pat bought from the sale rack at Pier 1 last year after July 4th

You can see why Pat was so excited about these accent plates.......she didn't like the "spotty" look but for the price.....

Pat used red, white, and blue vases and tea lights to add more interest

For the actual dinner, here's what the table looked like with the flags removed and a soup tureen added.


  1. A lovely table. I especially liked your use of plaid and stripes. The fireworks napkin rings really set them off. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Love, Love, Love the stripe plates with the plaid placemats. What a deal on those plates!!! I never seem to find those kinds of deals!!! The napkin rings make perfect fireworks!! Great table!!

  3. Beautiful! (as usual) I wouldn't have walked away from those plates either. Happy Independence Day!

  4. Yowza! 68 cents for plates! Great deal, and you honored them well with this perfect table for the 4th! Love the stripes and plaid and I'd love to know if those terrific napkins ring are still available at Pier One!

  5. You certainly scored big time at Pier 1. You were ready for the 4th and the stripes are perfect. I always love all your coordinating touches. Hope you will pop over and view Tea in Texas "Patriotic Bear" with patriotic plates!
    Have grand weeend!
