Have a Crabby Fourth!

I can't believe the Fourth of July is just around the corner! I don't know what kind of holiday you are going to have but I am going to have a Crabby Fourth!

I will be linking with Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch and Tea Time Tuesday.

I started with my Flag Day Table that I shared last week (Click Here to see). But I found these cute crab plates at Target and low and behold they looked great on the Flag Day plates!

I kept the same tablecloth, place mats, Colonial shell flatware and clear stemware. But I used red and white striped paper napkins from Target which have a light blue crab on them.

I used a large clam shaped bowl that I got at Target years ago and filled it with light blue vase filler marbles. Then I added 3 red candles and a small crab (actually a spreader) and used this as my centerpiece.

I added various crab items that I had collected through the years (OK, the "cracker" is a lobster, but it's all in the crustacean family!)

The round object above is meant to be a child's sippy cup, but I thought it could hold melted butter or tartar sauce.

On the mantle, I added some Target paper lantern shades.

And I added a small crab plate and a crab tea towel to Uncle Sam's tea cart.

I hope you have a great Fourth of July!
