Setting a Stars and Stripes Table

4th July Patriotic Pfaltzgraff Tablescape 9_heidikinscooks_June 2014

You guys, I cannot believe The Cute that was this patriotic 4th of July table! (Technically, this was for Flag Day, but who–besides me–celebrates Flag Day?) I’ve had most of these pieces for ages–in fact, the red napkins are the only thing that I’d consider “new”–but have never even thought about putting it all together this way. And look, look, look!! So stinking adorable!!

The patriotic pièce de résistance, of course, is these darling stars-and-stripes bowls, from Pfaltzgraff. I saw them last year and loved them immediately and when they went on sale I snagged them. Apparently, I snagged too soon, they are much less now than what I paid for them. (Sad face). Pfaltzgraff has a couple of other patterns I really like, but many veer into “old lady” territory awfully fast. Not so with these bowls, me thinks.

The bowl sits on my every-day white salad plate topping a cobalt Fiestaware dinner plate. I like that while still being red, white, and blue, the deeper tones don’t scream CHEAP PATRIOTISM WITH PRIMARY COLORS! I think they are quite classy, actually.

I am all about easy centerpieces (perhaps you’ve noticed), and this is no exception. A bunch of dark red carnations, split into three different vases/random bottles, and two small mason jars with a handful of $0.50 cent flags shoved into some rocks. That’s American, right?

The white tablecloth was a gift from my grandmother–it’s polyester, not linen or anything fancy, I love it because it was hers. The bamboo runner was a clearance find at Home Goods a while ago.

The red napkins have been in my stash for who-knows-how long, the napkin rings were an eBay find.

The goblets are from IKEA and the flatware is a hundred years old (okay, ten), from Target.
