Dining on the Porch With Red, White, and Blue

Today, I'm using a small table on my porch that is set with red, white and blue.

With Independence Day just around the corner, this Avon Liberty Bell Bicentennial Plate is front and center. 

The Liberty Bell Plate is sitting on a Staffordshire Liberty Blue dinner plate which I'll feature in another patriotic post.

The Paula Dean white plate has a pretty design and works with the stack of blue and white dishes. 

Do you see the small cross-stitched American Flag  design on the right side of the table?  I moved the stemmed goblet so you could see it. This special gift was made by a friend years ago; I am so thankful to have it especially since she told me she isn't doing cross stitch anymore because her eye sights isn't as good as it used to be. 

The cross-stitch design and the flag coaster add color and bits of patriotism for this red, white, and blue table. 

Thanks for stopping by to see my Red, White, and Blue table on the porch - Judy.

  1. I love everything red white and blue and it's so nice to be able to decorate with the same things for a couple of months! LOVE the Liberty bell china! WOW! I've never seen that design! Happy June!

  2. Hello,
    Love the table setting. Very patriotic! Have a great day!

  3. This cheers me so much. I absolutely love seeing patriotic settings, especially at this heart aching time.

  4. Judy, this is a beautiful red, white and blue table setting. Your Staffordshire Liberty Blue plates are perfect and a favorite on mine, just gorgeous. Love the napkins, cross stitch and coaster. Special touches for a great 4th patriotic table. Beautiful inspiration......

  5. have to love those beautiful blue plates they set the them off perfectly
    come see us at http://shopannies.blogspot.com

  6. I love the beautiful patterns on the edges of both plates. The cross-stitch is stunning and it's the perfect accompaniment.

  7. Such a pretty and festive setting! I like that you added the patriotic cross stitch.

  8. Wow Judy this is wonderful! Love the dishes and that cross stitched God Bless America! The coaster is so cute!

  9. Again, lovely. The needlework is beaautiful!

  10. Judy, what a lovely table with the Liberty Bell Plate and the Staffordshire Liberty Blue plate. Cute centerpiece as well. How special to display this Patriotic cross stitch your friend made. It is tedious work but a treasure to admire. Thank you for sharing at Love Your Creativity.

  11. I have a collection of the Liberty Blue dishes, but have never seen that complimentary top plate before. Love it! I lived in Philly during the bicentennial and these dishes have special meaning to me. Plus, the guy I married is a descendant from an PA militia officer, quartermaster at Valley Forge and a spy for Washington. He is even named in the Continental Congress papers just a week after declaring independence.

  12. Very patriotic! I love the Liberty Blue dishes and haven't seen them before. Thanks for sharing and linking up!

  13. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday,489. Hope you have a great week and come back to see us real soon!

  14. Judy - I had not looked ahead, and therefore did not realize you linking twice this week. How blessed we are! I simply can't choose which tableau I like best, so I won't! That cross-stitch is very special - I am a big stitcher, and the pattern is very effective in making it appear that the flag is waving. I will have to see if I can find the pattern.

  15. Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us at Charming Homes & Garden Link Party.

  16. I lean more towards blue than red when it comes to the 4th of July so I think your tablescape is stunning! The centerpiece ties it all together--beautiful job!
