More Colonial 4th Decor

My colonial dinning room decor consists of a dark red table cloth and an overlay of beige fabric printed with patriotic writing, over a box. On top of that is a flag box used for my floral arrangement. I added flags, a bow and some star picks. Sitting next to the box is Besty Ross and Uncle Sam.

My entry way has it's own little tablescape going on. I hung a drum print from a wrought iron circle that is on the wall. I also added a picture of Besty Ross and her sewing ladies making the first flag, a decorative ball, and some boxes with sayings on them. One says 1776, which is the house numbers.I thought was a cute play on my home. Laid out my hand made garland similar to the one on my mantle. Some ribbon & stars around the lamps to finish. I will show you more pictures of my table of two, bar area and my front porch, with the next posting.

Colonial Style 4th of July Mantle & Entry

I don't know if I ever mentioned that last Thanksgiving, Hubbs & I went to Washington,DC. No? Well we did and had a blast! While there I toured Mount Vernon,(George Washington home)and noticed the colonial theme of that era and in the decor. Well inspiration hit and thats the theme for my fourth of July mantle, entry way and formal dinning table. I also played on the 1776 theme because my house numbers are that! Cute ?? Like heck yeah!!!
So I started with two prints that I think simulate that era. One big star as a focal point, two jars filled with blue shredded paper and glitter stars. Two smaller prints that have sayings, two sugared stars, and red beaded candles. 2 decorative balls, one with stars and one with stripes. In the center I added a Uncle Sam lantern and a handmade garland made from chipboard and ribbons.

I want to take the time to thank all my followers for the great comments, they are very appreicated . I also was feature on a blog!!! More on that later! Will post more pictures tomorrow! Enjoy! I am linking up to :
