For this July 4th, I had my hubby help me carry our kitchen table outside into the shade of the large tree in our yard. I shopped around my house and used what I had. The only "new" item I used was the checkered tablecloth, $1 at a yard sale last weekend. Over that I layered a vintage replica flour sack tablecloth that I've had for years. I confiscated the bench and chairs from the front porch and put them to use here.
The base of the display is a vintage metal cherry themed tray that's usually on a shelf in my kitchen.
The cobalt blue canning jar glasses were a gift from my hubby a few years ago. I spotted them at an antique store in a nearby town but didn't buy them. I kept thinking about them though, and a few weeks later he surprised me with them.
The old Sun Crest bottle has a little metal piece in the mouth of it that has a bunch of tiny little holes in the top. I'm told this was used for sprinkling water on clothing during ironing back in the day.
The clear canning jar has some red and blue game pieces added to it.
|Old Cantrell & Cochran soda can, meaningful to us since our last name is Cantrell.|
And here it is with place settings added.
Again, I just used my regular everyday dishes. Nothing new, nothing fancy.
But I LOVE how it turned out!
How about you? Did you do anything special for the 4th?
