Table for One-Red, White and Blue Primer

Happy Tablescape Thursday! I'm also joining Vintage Thingie Thursday because all of the white is from antique/thrift stores!
I've been in a silly mood lately, and I just LOVE red, white and blue!
It's time to start showing our colors again, and I couldn't wait! So I brought out my patchwork table runner, and layered a few pieces.
Ruby dinner plate, crystal salad plate and milk glass bowl.
That gorgeous pink isn't a scoop of strawberry ice cream, my boss brought in peonies from her yard this morning, more on that later.

I played with the napkin a couple different ways, thought this shot best showed the fun detail of the bowl. 
The ornaments are headed for my feather tree (along with many others), 
I think they add a little sparkle.

And if anyone is wondering "where's the pig?" well... it's etched into the crystal plate!
Found at the thrift store for 25 cents-gotta love that!
Have a happy day everyone!

  14. Hi Lynn,

    I love red, white and blue. Its very patriotic and its also the colors of the French flag LOL

    25 cents? That is such a good deal! You must have been happier than a pig in the mud about finding this little gem.

    Thanks for visiting and sharing!
