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.
The cake stand will hold a cheese ball.
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.
