44th Tablescape Thursday......Red White and not to Blue!

Time for the 44th Tablescape Thursday, wow, I know I have not been doing them from the beginning but I do think I have improved and sure am using my brain more because of them! LOL
Thank you to Susan at,http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ , for hosting us and always inspiring me for sure!
Check out her blog to see all the other great tablescapes this week!

Well believe it or not this was a throw together table scape at about 5pm today.
I just started running around the house to pull together some red, white or off white and blue things. I have more burgundy sort of red , so that is what I used.
Come on in and set down and enjoy!

The table is set, are you ready for a little indoor patriotic picnic?
I love red anything, always a cheery color to me!

Some of the milk glass accents besides the salad plates.
A milk glass unclesam hat toothpick or can put extra spoons or a candle in it.
And some star shaped candle holders I have had for a long time.
They are great to use at this time of year.

Overhead view of the table set.
I used things I already had or found in other rooms of the house for this tablescape.

Center piece from a different angle. I found this basket to put the flower pot in in some craft things I had in the garage.

I gathered from different parts of the house for this center piece.
Chicken finials I already had in the kitchen, a little wooden patriotic drum and handmade wooden flag from the quest bedroom, a cloche stand and some faux flowers from the dining room and a piece of fabric from my sewing supplies for the runner.

A special hand carved and made early American flag sculpture and one of my chicken
finials are featured in the centerpiece.
The flag is made by a local man and his pieces are sold at The Speckled Hen
shop in Snohomish WA.

Place setting consist of , my red and white Old Britain Castles transfer ware dinner plates, covered by milk glass salad sized plates. My burgundy red crystal and flatware. Napkins I tucked into some little red , white and blue with stars tea light holders that look like sand pails.

I used old porch drapes or bunting flags to cover the chair seats.
This was a last minute thing, so actually to go better, they would be good tea dyed a bit but
I didn't have time to do it.
They usually decorate the front porch this time of year.

Linda this was thrown together at
5pm? ~WOW! You did an incredible job on it!

I think it looks beautiful how you incorporated the white roosters in with the red, white and blue.
It's so "Americana". Love it all!

Have a wonderful TT!
