"Tablescape Thursday"...Broad Stripes and Bright Stars...

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On The Porch; for "Tablescape Thursday"!
Please stop by and see what beautiful tables are being shown by the other participants!

Since "Tablescape Thursday" falls right before Memorial Day, I decided to to do a Patriotic theme table to share.

My brother Henry Daniel Phillips II; Vietnam Veteran...

Come sit and have a cold drink or perhaps some fresh cherry's, watermelon or a yummy coconut cupcake!

White ironstone dinner plates from JC Penney.
Red scallop plates also from JC Penny.
Blue and white Royal Stafford plates from TJ Maxx, a few years ago.
Blue wine glasses are from the Dollar Tree.
Glass compote's from GW, this week.
Glass basket from GW, this week.
Cupcake stand from Home Goods.
Napkins from Home Goods.
Uncle Sam figures from Michael's.
Tall white candle stick with red candle from Home Goods.
Blue place mats from Big Lots.

I hope you enjoy my table and take a few moments to reflect on all the sacrifices of our military, past and present. I also hope you have a wonderful "Memorial Day" weekend, thank you for visiting! Your kind comments, are so appreciated!

Please be sure to stop by and visit Susan at Between Naps On The Porch; she host's Tablescape Thursdays and I've met so many new friends by joining in her party each week! Thank you Susan!


  1. Love your table. The patriotic colors are just wonderful and I especially love the pic of your brother. What a wonderful tribute. Your crystal sherberts look like the same pattern I have. I hope you have a Blessed Holiday. Hugs, Marty

  10. I've been having such fun looking at many of the "patriotic" tables this week; I love yours!!
    Even your food is red white and blue!
    The blue transferware dishes are so pretty; it never occurred to me how great they would look paired with the reds and whites and solid blues to make a table like this. I kept having stars and stripes on the brain and was bummed that I couldn't do a 'patriotic' table of my own because I don't have any stars or stripes dishes! I will have to 'steal' your idea, because I DO have blue transferware! :-)
