One if By Land - Two if by Sea!

It's Tablescape Thursday sponsored by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!

Sharing an old post today for the 4th of July!

I really do know that Paul Revere's ride didn't happen in July or in 1776 for that matter, but I thought this lantern would make a nice centerpiece for my 4th of July Tablescape. So I am calling this Tablescape "One If By Land."


I found this little lantern last year at the Target One Spot. I thought it looked like DH's re-enacting lanterns, but he said it was too small, flimsy, etc. So I saved it for just such a tablescaping occasion!


DH loved the idea for this table and even added the little Revolutionary War Soldier ornament that he was given at some point! I think he added the perfect touch!

Here is the table without the dishes. I got these placemats and napkins from our local DAR chapter after letting them use our home for their meeting and letting DH give their program.





This is my dining room mantle with the nutcrackers.

Next is my parlor.


And some patriotic decorations on the parlor pump organ.




Now head over the Susan's for more great tablescapes!

Happy Fourth of July! :D Jewel
