July 4th

“It’s been said that the eye is a unique window into health”…

Does my eye look healthy?  Cause I’m happy to report that I am finally feeling human again.  I was down with a sinus infection then food poisoning. YUCK!!! so I have lots of catching up to do- (oh! and it wasn’t from my cooking)! Lol.  And, we must get ready for July 4th!!!

When I’ve been down, the first thing I want to do is decorate, work on a project or listen to awesome tunes.  So cleaning around the place, decorating for the 4th (since it’s around the corner & we’ll be busy leading into it), date night as well as grilling on a lazy Sunday, is what went down this weekend.


I decided on a rustic July 4th theme for my table and incorporated this “Dad’s” wooden crate (that way it can shout out “Happy Father’s Day”), to my sweet man!  I even did some free July 4th printables for the firecrackers, “America Land of the Free” banner and small flags for my readers.

July 4th

Started out with a crisp clean white linen tablecloth and a ruffled burlap runner.  Hauled out the red place-mats, white porcelain dinner plates, decorative red and khaki floral salad plates, crystal goblets and these vintage red striped napkins (a gift from an old neighbor).


Fillers for the wood crate include hydrangeas, real cotton bawl branches & some greenery.


Black touches for some contrast by using this metal high-wheeled bicycle and candlesticks.


The printables…up close.


These are the images of the printables I created to add some final “4th” touches to the tables-cape.  You’ll need some cardstock to print them on, glue stick, tape, wood skewers, wire cutters to trim skewers to size and scissors.


So click below for the free printables:

There you are!  Hope you can use the printables or share your table decor with me.  Oh, btw, if you have a flag out front that keeps getting twisted up with the wind, you might want to try my trick to stopping that. Buy you some drapery weights and sew them to the bottom edge of the flag for stability and weight.


It will prevent it from getting tattered up with the wind.  Now go do your own 4th of July decorating~
