I hope you're having a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! Whether you're having a big or small celebration I hope it's festive for you. We're just grabbing what's easy for the few people we have stopping by.
This vintage tablecloth always comes out in the summer. It's quite old, and so it only gets a workout a couple of times of year. The colors are fresh and lively for a cheery picnic.
I'm thinking red, white, and blue, of course, and happened to have a pot of flowers that fit the bill!
I am using my flower pot napkin rings and pot saucers as coasters for a mini theme. It's the perfect time for mason jars too. These are the reproduction version that seem almost neon colored to me. I like the soft blue vintage kind better but don't seem to have any right now!
Not long ago all of the little girls were here climbing the trees for cherries. They have all scattered in different directions now, and I like thinking about each of them when I sit down to eat at this tablecloth. This setting also makes me feel all "thirties farmhouse" which is a fun feeling for me. The rooster crowing over the fence in the neighborhood helps with that too.
Sitting out under the trees can get you thinking of simpler times. Funny how much we romanticize what had to be such hard times. (The thirties.) But today I just want to feel peaceful and thankful and wish the same for you too!
So glad you had a minute to stop by!
Seems like it's such a busy time for everyone in summer. I know I have been away from the dear old blog for a while myself! But thanks so much for stopping by to say hello!
