Traditional 4th of July Table

Since we avoided red, white, and blue on our other blog for Independence Day, Pat decided to set a very traditional table for the Table For One blog. For her inspiration, she used one of her favorite white plates - this one has a square, sleek, coupe-like design from 10 Strawberry Street.

The square place setting is set on the diagonal

Flatware is "Everyday" stainless by Reed & Barton

I call the blue champagne glass my "Joe Nye" glass after the late California decorator and designer. I fell in love with them after seeing them used on a table in a book he wrote entitled Flair

The flag napkin rings belonged to our Mother

Pat bought me a set of four place settings in this pattern from "The Cellar" at Macy's. 

Where it came from:
Blue Placemat - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
White Plate - by 10 Strawberry Street from Cuddly Bear (a local thrift boutique and one of Pat's very favorite shops)
Square Red Plate - the Cellar from Macy's five years ago
Flateware - "Everyday" by Reed & Barton from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Red Goblet - from Pier 1 years ago
Blue Champagne Trumpet - from eBay
White Napkin - from Tuesday Morning
Napkin Ring - from our Mother's collection
Votive Holders and Tea Lights - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Vase - from Pat's collection
Silk Flowers, 4th of July Decorations - from Michael's
