Camping, Summer

Glamping

A summer favorite – camping! In this tablescape it may look more like glamping, but some of us like glamping better!

Independence Day Tablescape

This tablescape is a tribute to our July 4th celebrations! It is full of the patriotic colors we love and a little bit of whimsy for fun!

This table setting has red, white and blue galore! From the red napkins encircled by a blue star to an American flag silverware holder. The centerpiece includes little white lanterns with flags with table scatter to create some whimsy.

American Flag silverware holders

Here’s a close up of the American flag silverware holders. I’m sure there is an official name for them, but just being practical! The little stars that hold them together are just fasteners pushed through the material. The flags are 25 cent flags from the dollar store! I love how these turned out!

Patriotic Lanterns

Here is a close up of the little lanterns and table scatter. I love the color the table scatter adds to the white tablecloth, and the lanterns are just a cute touch with the flags pushed in.

Whole table view

Here is the whole table again from an angle. I love how festive it is! Feel free to share your tablescapes with me and enjoy your 4th of July parties and celebrations!

Back to School

Back to School

Back to School

As September opens, for most children it is back to school time! This tablescape is inspired by all things educational from mini chalkboards to the teacher’s apple.

Red and Yellow napkins and plates remind me of the school bus colors.

Books, Letters, and Geography

These old books include an old-fashioned primer and a history textbook. I love old books and thought these added a nice touch to our centerpiece! The globes are a reminder of good ‘ole geography lessons.

Pencil Candleholders

Pencils wrapped with rubber bands become great candleholders and complete our table with all things school-related. The sunflowers which are abundant this time of year bring in some more yellow.

Flag Day

Flag Day

Monday is Flag Day so in honor of it, we did a tablescape complete with red, white and blue flags, and colors.

Centerpiece

This centerpiece is a combination of Dollar Store items, Hobby Lobby and Walmart. The items came together and made a very patriotic centerpiece

This patriotic holder was made simply with a small flag taken off it’s wooden handle, red and blue stars that are envelope fasteners, and voila! you have a holder for your silverware!

Napkins are held in a fan shape by navy star napkin holders, made by painting and sealing cookie cutters.

View from above. The tablecloths lend a whimsical touch to the setting.
