4th of July Table

Originally uploaded by pwinn.

I was so inspired by Mrs. Wilt's festive 4th of July table I decided to use some of her ideas. :0) I already had the blue tablecloth and white napkins. I purchased the red and white fabric, blue ribbon and seashells yesterday at Hobby Lobby. All for under $7.00.

Grace designed her own napkin ring and helped me with the others.

The candes were also a great idea of Mrs. Wilt's. All the little girls at Emily's birthday party made one. No heating was required, put a wick it the bottom of a jar, pour in the little candle beads and tie a ribbon around the jar. They were a big hit!

Since Autumn is my favorite season, I've always been in a big hurry for summer to be over with. Learning about all these fun summer decorating ideas has helped me enjoy it so much more!

I like it Kelli, looks really nice. Oh no, I don't have a blue cloth or red one, will a candy cane one do?? Ü

I love the shells too.

Everything looks wonderful! You did a great job. :o)

Doesn't it just lift your spirit when you have something lovely on your table? I'm so glad that you found such great deals. I'm glad the girls enjoyed the craft, too- so easy, and no burned fingers! :o)

Have a blessed 4th!

In His joy,
Mrs. Wilt

Clarice, Grace and I had lots of fun making them together.

Mindy, I hope you found some cute things at the dollar store!

Tori, at least the tablecloth has two of the right colors. ;0)

Mrs. Wilt, thanks again for the wonderful ideas!
