  1. So pretty Lory, and so you! Love the pink jars!

  2. Another winner, Lory! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of your plaid champagne flutes. I, too, am a big brunch aficionada, and I’m now at a point when I can pull one off in a heartbeat with all the practice I’ve had. Love your flowers! Your red ones, especially are so beautifully bright. I would have agreed with you completely a few years back about kitsch, however, I think I’m mellowing. Now, instead of agreeing 100%, I’m at 95%.. I’ve found that people do enjoy a little kitsch once in a while. It seems to relax them because it feels more informal, and, if I’m clever enough, I can find a kitschy element that will also act as a conversation starter. I think the trick is, as you’ve shown us here with the stars, to do understated kitsch, just a little something to make people smile and remind them of the theme. What a lovely way to start a 4th of July weekend! Thank you for all the great ideas.

    1. Thanks, Maria! Ha ha… as I was reading your comment, I was thinking, “but the stars”… lol! Yep, you mentioned them. So yeah, I think I’m about 95% of the way there too… 😉 Thanks for visiting!!

  3. Lory, your tablescape is gorgeous. I love the vintage style and the way you stacked the beautiful dishes. I hope that you have a very Happy Fourth of July!!!

  4. Happy 4th to you, Lory! Seeing this post makes me wish I had planned on having a 4th brunch at my house! Your table is lovely, as always. I love the elegance that comes through in all your tablescapes. You have quite “the touch!” I look forward to seeing you in my inbox each day.

    1. Thanks, Maryjo! Funny, when I put the link in to the glasses, I was noticing how expensive the goblets have become – I guess because they are not made anymore? I have them for so long – I certainly didn’t pay that kind of price. They’re really heavy and so wonderful. Thanks for stopping by!!

  8. You have a very sophisticated take on red, white and blue!! Such a pretty table. I especially like your vintage crystal condiment holder and your stemware- they are just beautiful. Enjoy your 4th!!!

  9. Lovely! I especially like the silver chargers. Where can I find some? They would be perfect with my China. Thank you.

    This is an awesome display of the holiday spirit! The idea of using what you have is a great way to go. The linen napkins are fantastic. Thank you so much for your talented sharing!

    Absolutely gorgeous. I am so lusting after the red transfer pitcher. The flower combinations are absolutely perfect!! Love your style and photos. I am slowly trying to change my style to French Country and you are such an inspiration!!

  14. Love the soft touches of patriotic color on your table here. Very pretty!

    Happy Independence Day,
    Barb 🙂

    I love your decor for red,white & blue ideas. Where in the world did you find red Mason jars??

    Your post inspired me to pull out my box of Patriotic decor and add a few things to my front garden for tomorrow. We moved recently and the inside of our home is just not yet in order enough for a nice table setting, but my little flags and pinwheels will hopefully add a touch of Americana to our front garden. The full-sized American flag was already set to go out in the morning, but a few extra touches will be nice as well. I have a small bistro table with 2 chairs in the front, and put a red/cream cloth napkin on top with a faux white hydrangea in a red vase, tucked in a couple of tiny flags, and sprinkled a few red/white/blue stars around it. Thanks for the ‘nudge’! Hoping it will bless the neighbors who are walking the neighborhood more than ever!
