I hope all of my blogging friends had a wonderful Fourth of July holiday!
Our day was filled with way too much food! We got together with my husband’s family for lunch. Instead of grilling, we decided to have fried catfish for lunch. To go with the fish, we had cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, cheese grits, hush puppies, Cajun cake, banana pudding, cherry cheesecake, and pound cake. After lunch, we were fit for nothing but lazing around the house!
This is a simple tablesetting that I did for our Fourth of July dinner tonight. After that very heavy lunch, it was chicken salad sandwiches and salad for dinner…not that any of us was really very hungry.
I started with a white tablecloth and red beaded placemats. Next I added white dinner plates and blue glass salad plates.
Red, white and blue star napkins were gathered with white napkin rings topped with a flag.
Cobalt blue iced tea glasses and red acrylic handled flatware completed the place settings.
For the centerpiece, I started with a glass cake plate. I filled the top of it with white candles, red roses, white carnations, curling ribbon and star garland.
Two small red, white and blue candles and two flag candles, all in glass votive holders, were placed around the cake plate.
I love this Blue Hour shot! Almost time for dinner.
Time to light the candles…another shot showing the Blue Hour.
Thanks so much for visiting me today…gotta run for now, it’s almost time for fireworks!
