4th of July Celebration Sunset Dinner........

Some of our friends stopped over on last Saturday evening to see how our vacation went.
So I ask them to come on over for grill out and I had 15 minutes to get dressed and set this table.
Not bad for a quick rush to get it going. So I took a picture of how it look before the night set in.
Please check out all the other blogger at Between Naps on the Porch by Susan. You will not be disappointed.

White Gollum dishes, red-white-blue salad plates.

Red, white and blue covered place mats.

Red glasses for each place setting for a flower from the garden.

White smoked and red glass candles and tall candle tapers.

Glass centerpiece with "all about flags".

Little bit of sunset.

Thank you for visiting Interior Rooms, you gals are greatly appreciated for stopping

by to read my blog. Thank you so much.

Great table. You home is beautiful.

I am hosting a Christmas in July Tablescape Party at my Playing Dishes blog. There will be one held each Saturday this month. Please come and participate or at least visit. A holiday tablecloth will be given away on the last Saturday, July 25. Info on signups is available by clicking my sidebar memes available on both my blogs.

I am also having a weekly Christmas giveaway at my Christmas Memories in My Heart blog. Weekly entries are closed out a midnight on Wednesday for this.

Hopefully some of you tablescape regulars will pull together a tablescape for CIJ or pull out some photos from last year to post.

Happy CIJ!

Thanks for stopping in today....I missed you! How are things? getting caught up at work and home after the vacation??? we got quite a bit of rain the last couple of days and that forced me to stay inside and clean my house...Brayden is turning 10 on Friday, so I have to get ready for my parents to visit, and the party...lots to do!
