Independence Day Tablescape Featuring Liberty Hall by Staffordshire
Happy Fourth of July friends! Thanks for stopping by. Thursday has arrived again and brought with it Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Make sure you stop by and see all the wonderful tablescapes.
These are my new dishes, Independence Hall by Staffordshire. I just love them so much. They are the first blue in my collection. What a great way to start!
I layered them with my white Gibson Claremont plates and gold chargers from my Christmas stash. I think a bit of gold sets the red white and blue off perfectly. It represents the gold stars.
The blue wine goblets are from the Dollar Tree. They are so pretty a perfect match to the Independence Hall. I love mixing it all.
I used my tried and true red place mats and Oneida's Brooch flatware.
Here are a few candlelit shots. Please for give me for scrambling the order of the pictures. Not sure how that happened. It's been a while, I guess I'm rusty.
Here is a shot peeking through the wine glass that I am using as a water goblet. Is that breaking any rules? Never quite acquired the taste for wine, but I love the glasses.
A close up of these new treasures. I just love the blue and the detail. It's so great to be back with a tablescape post. I have really missed it.
Have a safe and wonderful 4th! A special thanks to all of our soldiers and their families past and present. As we all know, their sacrifices have built the wonderful country!
