4th of July refreshment center

When I started getting out my patriotic pieces to use on the 4th, I decided to have a practice run for the refreshment center by the pool.

Red white and blue outdoor refreshment center

Our bench swing broke and we haven't replaced it, so I used the A-frame to corral the food and drink station.

Red white and blue celebration

I picked up this home-made kitchen island at a garage sale a couple of years ago. I normally use it as a potting bench, so I had to start by giving it a good cleaning.

Outdoor refresment center

These polka dot food tents I found at an estate sale get a lot of use in the Summer.

July 4th party

4th of July snack center

Grapes will fill the basket under one of the tents.

4th of July

Patriotic cocktail napkins will be available.

Red white and blue party

I'll put red, white, and blue melamine plates in the flower box.

4th of July

Chips and dip will be elevated on a patriotic cake stand.

Party for 4th of July

Dispensers will hold Goldfish Crackers and Animal Crackers. Red, white and blue nut cups are for crackers from the dispensers.

Outdoor 4th of July party

I elevated a patriotic bear with a vintage water sprinkler turned upside down.

4th Of July

We'll be able to grab a paper bag, fill it with popcorn, and sprinkle it with regular salt or spicy salt. We'll be setting up the croquet game for a little competition. I bought this vintage set at an auction.

Independence Day celebration

 We can have lemonade from the drink dispenser or a soft drink.

Outdoor entertaining

I provided a seat for guests who don't want to be far from the food.

 I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thank you for coming to visit me.
