RED WHITE AND BLUE SNACK TABLE


Red White & Blue Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
 
We usually celebrate the 4th of July outside. Rain is predicted for Saturday, so I'm trying to set up some of it inside, but I'm still hoping that it can all go outside on Saturday. This table began with a quilt I bought at an estate sale several years ago.

The little wagon will serve a layered dip.

Another dip will fill this patriotic bowl.

This wooden basket will serve chips for the dips.

When I saw these coke cans at the grocery store, I knew I wanted to use them on the table, so I got out my vintage coke crate and a Statute of Liberty figurine to make a little display on the table. (Does it kind of remind you of that Coke ad about buying the world a coke? Ooops! Did I just date myself?)

The napkins are in a star napkin holder.

Another patriotic holder is for the cutlery.

The grandchildren will spend a lot of time cranking Goldfish crackers and animal crackers out of these dispensers.  Paper napkins, tucked inside the dispenser, provide some more red, white, and blue.

I reused the centerpiece that I had on the patriotic lunch table last week. You can see that post here.

I do hope I am able to take all of this outside on Saturday, but if it rains, I'm ready. I hope you have a sunny weekend where you are. To my American readers, I wish you a Happy Independence Day.
 


 
This post is partying with  Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch and Celebrate It Sunday at Celebrate and Decorate.

Wow! You seem to have thought of everything! I am pinning a couple of the pictures to my Fourth of July board. I love all the red, white and blue dishes and food displays you have, they really make the table! I hope your weather turns and everyone can be outside, but regardless, you have planned a spectacular table! I would love it if you would come by and share this over at my new link party at: http://celebrateanddecorate.com/celebrate-it-sunday-link-party-3/

Wishing you a wonderful 4th! Hugs! Chloe

Hi Laurie, this table setting is fabulous. I love everything and that little wagon for the dip is adorable. You have so many great ideas including using the quilt for the table cloth. Love how you layered the plates with the napkins too. Your family will love it.
Wishing you all a very Happy 4th of July!

The quilt looks wonderful as the table covering for Independence Day, My favorite part of this lovely display is the coke crate with the metal coke bottles and the Statue of Liberty.
