This tablescape has some of the same elements of my Stars and Stripes tablescape but other elements are different. I rediscovered the tablecloth buried in a stack of vintage tablecloths. I remembered that I had it but I thought it was a smaller one. It is not vintage but I have had it for several years. I love the bunting design around the edges. I can’t remember where I bought it but it might have been Ebay.
I like the contrast between the dark background on the tablecloth and the white stars.
This salad plate is enamelware and it was made by Golden Rabbit. Can’t remember where I bought it but I have had it for several years.
These white salad plates were made by Paola Navone. I think I bought them on sale at Crate and Barrel several years ago. They are heavy and the edge design goes well as an accent plate under many of my smaller plates.
I bought these plates online a few years ago at Ballard Designs, I think they are called Southern Living. They are about 11 1/2” in diameter, a good size to either be a dinner plate or a charger.
I bought the frosted white flatware on sale online at Wayfair a few years ago, it is made by Cambridge. It is 18/0 so the fork tines are a bit sharper than I would like but I really liked the frosted color. Wayfair has really good sales on flatware sometimes. I used this flatware on my Crabby tablescape this spring as well as my tablescape Stars and Stripes Forever.
Using my red Waterford Marquis Brookside goblets again, a repeat on other tables this Spring. I have used this goblet four times now this spring in my Valentines, Spiders, Cards, and Stars and Stripes tablescapes. I think if I were starting a tablescaping hobby, a set of red goblets would be one of my first purchases. They can be used several times a year. I bought these goblets years ago at HomeGoods. HomeGoods is selling this pattern in clear right now. I bought a set because I love the fact that they are a bit taller than other goblets and the design goes with everything. The cobalt blue goblet is actually plastic, I bought them at Pier 1 a few years ago. Many tablescapers buy these plastic goblets in many different colors at the Dollar Store but Pier 1 has them on sale from time to time as well although they are more expensive there. I buy tablescape items in sets of 12 and I never seem to be at Dollar Tree when they have that many in stock of any one color.
The napkins came from Sur la Table a few years ago. When I bought the napkin rings they were brown but Hubby painted them white for me because I knew I would use them more often if they were white. I can’t remember where I bought them. The red place mat came from Pier 1.
I used these metal star place card holders on my Stars and Stripes tablescape also. Can’t remember where I bought them, I have had them for years. The set came with three navy, three red, three turquoise, and three white in the set.
After taking a secondary role on my Stars and Stripes tablescape, my Uncle Sam pitcher takes center stage this week as the centerpiece. He is standing on a Rhodes drinks dispenser stand from Pottery Barn that I bought on sale several years ago. I use it often to elevate whatever I am using as a centerpiece. It is just the right height, not too short and not too tall. The stand is resting on three plastic trays I bought on sale online at Sur la Table a few years ago. They match the napkins I am using here, I must have bought them all at the same time. I collected Uncle Sams for a while when the family room was decorated with red, white, and blue and I bought this Uncle Sam pitcher several years ago, can’t remember where. It was made by Department 56. I have always loved pitchers, I think because with a large family we always had one on the table while I was growing up. My mother never allowed a milk carton on the table! My four brothers tried to sneak one on a few times but it never worked. Then they would sometimes put it on the floor next to their chair! I love this pitcher, it is one of my favorites.
