Tablescape Thursday /July 4th BBQ

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I am early for this post but I have several different options for a July 4th BBQ, so I thought I start this week. Especially if you are having a crowd for the 4th you want to plan ahead to get all the great bargains out there before the stores are sold out.

I purchased most of these items at Walmart. They had great buys on melamine accessories and paper goods. The items below were found in the $1 section at Target (the kitchen towel that can be used as a large napkin for those messy BBQ's. The star bucket was from a couple of years ago though. The paper plates were from Walmart. $2.00 for a package of 8.
Below I changed the paper plate to white and added a star/striped paper napkin. The fabric on the table was from Joann's a few years back, they do have some nice fabric right now and there is a 40% off coupon.

The two items above were also purchased at Walmart for $2.50 each I believe. You can use the star dish for condiments, salsa or whatever you would like. It can also serve as the salad bowl for individuals salads. The plate is nice in lieu of paper if we really want to go "green". However, it would most likely be for a smaller gathering at $2.50 each.

Well I hope you enjoyed an early Red, White and Blue themed 4th. The only way to go. I will be adding to this 4th of July decorating post, so be on the look out.
Have a Happy 4th and don't forget to stop by Between Naps on the Porch for exciting table decorating.
