I wanted to create a table setting this year with my flag plates. I have had them for a few years now. They are melamine and I found them at Pier 1. The tablecloth came from Crate and Barrel a few years ago. It is a heavy material and well made. It is actually two shades of blue, the color will show better in other photos. This tablescape is fairly simple.
If you have been reading my blog posts about my tablescapes, you have begun to see some repetition in my design elements. This tablescape uses the same flatware, place card holder, and charger that I have used before in other recent tablescapes.
I love the design of these flag plates, it is a simple but strong design. They are melamine and I bought them at Pier 1 a few years ago.
The extra plate here above the white charger plate is a red plate from Pottery Barn, their Cambria pattern that I have used so much this Spring in tablescapes. The white charger came from Williams Sonoma many years ago, it’s called Antique Beaded. If you read my blog, you have seen it before several times.
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 and Stars and Stripes tables this spring. You can see the two color tones in the tablecloth in this photo.
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 napkins probably came from HomeGoods or Pier 1. I have had them for several years.
The cobalt blue goblets are from Pier 1 several years ago. They are plastic. Can’t remember what company made the red goblet, I have had them for a long time. If anyone recognizes it, please let me know!
Can’t remember where I bought the metal star place card holders. I have had them for years. The set came with three navy, three red, three turquoise, and three white in the set.
I have a few of these patriotic balls, can’t remember where they came from.
I struggled with a centerpiece for this table and finally ended up with this. I found the large blue glass bowl at a garage sale recently. I just added flag napkins inside the bowl and flags outside and kept it simple. When I saw that bowl I knew it would come in handy as a centerpiece. Bowls are an easy centerpiece, just fill them with something and you are done!
One of my more simple table settings but I love the flags!
