My sweet sister-in-law, Brenda, gave me these cute standup napkins that inspired my tables for our Independence Day celebration.  (When my sweetheart barbeques, we need a lot of napkins on the table.)

Laurie, what a treat for the eyes! That fabulous quilt is just the perfect base for your festive table! I love how the gingham print matches the plates' border -- adorable! The second photo is SO welcoming -- your family will love celebrating the Fourth at your house!

WOW! That beautiful quilt has a partner? Or is it magic and turns to navy when it gets dark out? I love it both ways! SALUTE!

How cute! I've never seen stand up napkins. Looks like you are ready for the crowd. Love the quilt and also love seeing those cute plates again. There gingham borders and the flags flying in the flowers are perfect for any patriotic celebration. I saw that another blogger featured these plates in her post.
Have a great time. Happy 4th of July! ~ Sarah

Oh I knew if I needed seasonal inspiration I would find it visiting you.
Your strawberry napkins remind me that I have the matching tablecloth - quite faded and worn, but carrying memories of family gatherings from decades past.

Thank you for sharing this holiday excitement.

This is hand's down my favorite Laurie table ever. I love the quilt tablecloth and those vintage napkins in a huge way. I continue to have to use use self control about coveting with those plates... Thou shalt not covet, Debbie...

I hope you have a wonderful Independence Day!

I love this table! You have captured the spirit of our wonderful country in your fun star-ladne, red white and blue tablescape!

I also like the display with the mini-house decked out in bunting and with the fireworks coming out of the roof. Love it!
