Red, White & Blue Breakfast Room

In my earlier blog today I said I was going to have a series of blog as I pulled out all my patriotic decorations this year. I really had planned to post later in the week but I did not want to miss 200th week at Between Naps on the Porch! So this is going to be my second post for today.

If you have visited before you know that I have a seasonal tree in my breakfast room. At this time it is all decked out in Red, White & Blue. A closer look in another blog.

The sun was really bright. (my my windows sure look dirty cloudy) it's the sun right!
The table is set for breakfast for four.

Over all table

White lantern were used in my daughters wedding, it sets a top  a clear cake stand. My Mom picked up at a garage sale for $2.00 .  The hats, star salt shakers
(matching blue one is on the other side of the lantern),
small pitcher and small  star dish where shop at home fines.
The small strip bowls are from Targets $1.00 bin.

The plates are from Cracker Barrel, which were a Birthday gift from my Mom and Dad. There are two different patterns. They sit upon Oneida Wicker, this was a find at Goodwill a while back ,$10.00 for a place setting for 4 with serving bowls.  I danced all the way to the car.
You may remember them.
Place mates are Dollar tree.
I must not forget the flatware I used these in last year 4th blog. I think they came from Marshall's or Ross can't remember. The butter dish is Fiesta.

Now you can see the other shaker. The red glasses again from my Mom she was going to sell them in garage sale and  grabbed rescued them. The cups are from Old Navy for several years they had different patterns for 3 or 4 years in a row. Wish they would bring them back.
 The place card holder with the flags, I really don't know they were in my container when I unloaded this year.
Wish someone would straighten that desk!

The bakers rack holds serving items. The straw holder is really ice cream bowl for Collection Etc., last year sale item. Don't love to find things you forgot you had the blue drink dispenser was at the back of a cabinet.
In the middle are a vintage picnic salt and pepper shaker.
More of the Old Navy cups.
The second shelf holds more birthday gifts but from my daughter, the star dispenser was also a gift form her. 

 This is a birdhouse that I saw at Dollar General and didn't buy. Big Jim happen to be with me when Isaw it.
Of course  I went the next day to a differnet DG they didn't have. So as we all know I should have
 bought it when I saw it.

Well last week I was back in the first DG to pick up other items and what was on the top shelf behind a flower pot.  It was really almost hidden from my eye site, (I am only 4'11 and yes I stretched out and brought it down in one piece. Happy Dance !!!!!!

I love to decorate with red, white & blue and yes I have a lot more to show you.
Please watch for part 3 OF A  RED, WHITE & BLUE JULY
