A Beachy 4th of July Tablescape

I love the 4th of July.........
I used two table runners with this.

I also used some more of my old bottles.
One the the table runners, the star runner, is actually a scarf from the 99 Cent Store.
I found the shabby bird cage at GW.
I wrapped the old bottles with patriotic ribbon from Big Lot's, They had a pack of 6 different red, white and blue ribbon for 2 dollars. I had plenty left over too.
I love the star shaped ribbon.

The Blue Willow dishes were my mom's and we used them as everyday dishes when I was growing up.

I think using a "Milk of Magnesia" bottle to tablescape with is a little comical!

I made these wooden flags for another craft years ago and just decided to use them this way this year. It's hard to see, but they have glitter on them and look jazzy in the sun light.
The patriotic dish towels under the plates are from The Dollar Tree.
More blue bottle goodness.......
lot's of starfish.

The faux carnations were 25 cents a bunch at a thrift store, and I just pulled the flowers off of the stems to use.

Patriotic Tags For Glassware

I had so much fun making my 4th of July Banner that I decided to make some matching glass tags while I had everything out.

It couldn't have been easier and I think they're kinda cute!

I added the napkins, ribbon and flags which I already had, turned out pretty festive!
