Sailing into the Fourth!

When the Fourth of July holiday falls
in the middle of the week that's
a cause for a two weekend
celebration right!
We are celebrating here at
Beeutiful by Design
by Sailing into the Fourth with
this sailboat themed patriotic table.
I used my everyday blue and white plates along with
new galvanized chargers and
vintage blue tumblers.
I mixed blue and red flatware
and these Sailboat paper napkins
to complete the table.

These blue and white
mini porcelain urns are battery operated
to give a little glow to the table.
Sailboat salt and pepper on a
red and white checked runner
keep with the patriotic sailing theme.
Finally I filled this galvanized bucket with anchor detail
with white hydrangeas from the yard
and small flags!
Hope you are able to spend some time
this holiday with family and friends
to celebrate the blessings of our free nation!

GazeboSummer Luncheon

This teal china cabinet in my booth space
was the inspiration for combining blue and white
with milkglass & coral lusterware
to set a summery table.
When I located these beautiful gazebo/pagoda inspired napkins
I knew they would go wonderfully with my
vintage combination of dishes
for a summery luncheon.

I had such fun putting this table together at the store!
I used blue and white ironstone plates
layered with white pom pom napkins
coral lusterware salad plates
the wonderful paper napkins & placecards
and a vintage set of blue stemware.
As the centerpiece I used a
blue and white soup tureen in lieu of flowers.
What I love about this table is the ability
to mix and match with your
level of effort & what you have on hand.
 The place cards also make great buffet markers,
book marks and scripture cards.
If you wanted to just use paper you could easily substitute
the large square dinner plates shown in the display above.
If you wanted to use all linen and glassware
you could eliminate the paper items.
No budget or time for flowers -just use a similar piece to your
plates in the center.
Thanks for visiting!
I hope you make some time to gather friends or family
for a summer luncheon this season!
