Patriotic Tablescape and Another Preview

Can you believe June is nearly over?  Independence Day is just around the corner and Summer is going too, too fast.  Last week I was in Hobby Lobby and they already have their fall and Christmas decor on the shelves!  I chose to ignore those aisles.

In honor of the approaching patriotic SUMMER holiday, I am setting the dining room table in red, white, and blue….how original is that?
I started with white square plates layered with blue bowls and each setting has a striped glass.  I purchased everything for the settings at Dollar Tree.    
For the centerpiece, I started with a wicker picnic basket.  Atop the picnic basket, I used this cute little red bucket I bought at Hobby Lobby to use on Jordan’s graduation buffet a couple years ago.  I added white and blue flowers and accented with the Stars and Stripes.  The star holds a tealight and came from Hobby Lobby...from one of the aisles not containing fall holiday decor. The little red pitcher was on clearance for 50% off.
