Let Freedom Ring!

Let freedom ring!!!  Today I'm on the back porch with a patriotic table set for two.

I started by draping the table with a red tablecloth and topping it with a vintage blue and white tablecloth.

For the centerpiece, I used a galvanized bucket with rocks inserted with red candles and red, white and blue pinwheels.

For a little music, Hunter's vintage Motorola radio. 
The place setting consists of red square plates (JCP) with a Mikasa Ultrastone Blue salad plate. The napkins are actually dishtowels that I found this pass weekend for 50 cents each.  The navy blue flatware was a thrift find.  The Noritake Sweet Swirl goblets were a recent goodwill find.  They look a little "dewy" right now.  Does that make sense?  I had just stepped from inside the house to the back porch and going from the cool house to the 93 degree (and high humidity) caused them to fog up.

  9. Love the fireplace mantel on your patio! That is a great idea and one I should probably copy. :) Thanks for commenting on my vintage camper post. I clicked over to your google plus page, but I am totally clueless about that. Guess I had better get with it! I'm following.
