Mr. B & I don't usually do much for the 4th.
We will BBQ some ribs,
I'll make some cole slaw
and a macaroni salad
as well as a pie.
We used to be able to watch the
city's fireworks display
from the front porch
but, the neighbors trees have
gotten too tall,
obstructing our view.
We have driven the few miles
to watch them close up but,
with both of us having to work the next day,
we will probably not do that this year.
Max does NOT like the 4th of July!
all of the fireworks and
firecrackers have him hiding
under the bed most of the night.
No matter what we old fuddy duddies
do, I ALWAYS
I usually do up the little table
in the entryway but, now
that I have the buffet I filled
the top of it instead.
I painted and then modge podeged napkins on
some $1.00 bird houses from Joann's.
The flag tray is from Kohl's.
Regularly priced at $34.99, I paid
$6.99 on clearance!
Everything else was also purchased on
clearance or made by me.
You may remember
back at this post the fabric
I got while out thrifting a few weeks ago.
I knew right then and there I was
going to use it for this table
The blue placemats were given to me
by one of Mr. B's friends when
he was moving.
and were another clearance find
from Target several years ago.
The little hats are from
I put a patriotic ribbon around my
go to white napkins and
laid red, white and blue flatware from
Family Dollar on top.
The bowls, for ice cream later,
were found in the Dollar Spot
at Target several months ago.
For the centerpiece,
I spray painted two Ragu jars,
and added some jute and stars.
They are filled with
flowers from my favorite flower shop
The Dollar Tree LOL.
I also spray painted a clear vase from Goodwill white
and loaded in a bunch of the symbol
of our freedom, American flags.
The blue stems are from The Dollar Tree and
the red plastic water glasses are from Kohl's.
of this holiday!
I am so proud to be
I hope you have a wonderful day
with friends, family
or, just that special one that you love!
Save room for some pie!
