Happy July 4th Eve and as we head into the birthday of my southern Neighbour I decided to start the celebration a little early.
As I indicated yesterday showing my #canadianpride comes easy and being able to turn my outdoor table and yard into a sea of red and white, well why not? If you recall I mentioned that I have found that pieces can be changed easily to represent a new occasion. Saturday I used my Red and White place setting, and now with a small switch out I am ready for Independence Day. Did I forget to mention I also purchase a full set in blue as well as the red and white? ( yeah I may have full pace settings for 12 of my closet friends, plus a few more)
I found these dishes at the Canadian Superstore a few years ago and they are perfect, classic set yet a lovely splash of colour to brighten up your yard on even the most normal of occasion.
A few American Flags, a red bucket with red and white checked napkins and the table starts to take shape. I alternated the red, white and blue dishes for a bigger impact and even picked up a few plastic patriotic stars for added emphasis. I added a few stars and stripes napkins and hello quick switch to celebrate another occasion. Plus how cool is it that all my cushions fir the theme as well.
(debated using color and neighbor to really help the authenticity but that would have been too much right?)
