Spirit of '76 Tablescape for the 4th!

I have had a lot going on in the last couple of years: major kitchen renovation, both daughters getting engaged, and just a few weeks ago - my older daughter's wedding, complete with reception at our home! All this has not left me with much time to tablescape or blog!

I have pretty much gotten my house back in order, so I was very excited to get my dining room ready for a 4th of July Independence Day tablescape. I am especially excited about the 4th of July this year because I got some new china which is perfect - Royal Staffordshire American Heritage!

Here is a teacup showing what I believe is Mount Vernon.

 Paul Revere's Ride is featured on the Cereal Bowls.

The Dinner Plate features a reproduction of the image called "Spirit of '76" and the Boston Tea Party is depicted on the Salad Plate.

I got a call this Spring from a friend who was working at her church's yard sale and she said she know I would love this china. She knows me and my tastes well so I promised to buy the box sight unseen! In the box, I found 1 dinner plate, 7 salad plates, 6 cereal bowls and 8 cups and saucers.

Since I only have 1 dinner plate, I am displaying it and a salad plate on an easel in my kitchen, as you can see above.

I put 2 of the cups and saucers on my tea cart, as you can see below.

And on my dining room table, I added gold chargers, Spode Pink Tower plates, and the Royal Staffordshire salad plates.

Lots of Red, White, and Blue Pinwheels in the Centerpiece!

I will be sharing this with Rustic and Refined and Between Naps on the Porch. Have a Happy and Safe Holiday!
