Colorful 4th of July

Aren't the colors of our nation's birthday just perfect? Rich, brilliant colors. Photos outside make it better too. 




Looks are deceiving....it looks cool and shady in that green, green grass. But it was 101 degrees when I did this!




Grouping  of red geraniums and  centerpiece of vase with flags, stars and sparklies. 


Directions to make this centerpiece here.




Poor Roxy, she would not go in the house, in this heat, while I was messing with  tablescape. 
I mean, she sees dishes, tablecloth, silver rattling, SURELY there will be food! Poor Roxy!


I am joining 
for Tablescape Thursday

I'm loving your pic-nic table all done up for the 4th.! The basket is adorable, love it! Feel sorry for Roxy, the poor girl! Al the sparkles, flags and dishes are just perfect for a patriotic table.

Love your red, white and blue table. You are brave to get out in this horrible heat, Pat! Doesn't look like there is any relief in sight...we need rain desperately.
Can't wait for the Savers near you to open...the one on Nall/95th has nothing in the way of dishes, about the same for 135th/Mur-Len!

I love your tablescape! The centerpiece including the picnic basket is great. I have my own "Roxy" at my house. She will NOT leave my side no matter where I am or what I'm doing.
Thanks for sharing your cute Patriotic Table with us.
Have a blessed Fourth.
God Bless America!
