The napkins, tablecloth, burgundy chargers, blue plates,goblets, glasses, napkin rings, 2 Uncle Sams, star candleholders, center candle/black candleholder, plates, and bowls are all TS treasures. The silver candlesticks are decades old.

The silver hammered chargers were the $1 ones from HL last yr. The bowls are the Old North Church, Staffordshire Ironstone.

The plates are The Capital At Washington, Johnson Bros, England.

This is such an 'Elegant Independence Day Table'!!
Love - Love ALL those dishes and you're right they are so perfect for this holiday. I can't believe these are ALL TS finds and that everything - AGAIN - fits so perfectly together... Amazing!
I love how the burgundy colored chargers look with the blues...it sets your dishes off nicely. Your stems - Uncle Sam's and candles...all add a lovely touch.
Great table and 'Candy Shot' too!

The plates & bowls are GORGEOUS! Yes, perfect for an Independence Day t'scape! Love how you've 'stacked' each place setting & the hammered ones are still my fav! Love the blue plates under the red ones, too!

The blue t'cloth is so bold looking & lovely for this table...& always enjoy how you double up your napkins. Candlelight & wicker...more pretties!!! Enjoy your 4th, too, candy! Busy outside yet but enjoying these Holiday posts! TFS! Jeanne S.

I hadn't seen dishes with the capitol like those, how perfect for this holiday! How great that you can put together such a nice tablescape and all with TS bargains! No one would ever guess if you hadn't told us! Lovely.

Candy,

I love the historic look of your table--how appropriate for Independence Day!

I really like the transferware--I never saw the Old North Church and the Capitol before. The dark blue tablecloth and the silver candlesticks...makes me think of Paul Revere!

Thank you for the compliments.
I have some other plates that would also work for the holiday, but these seemed so perfect, I decided to use them. I found the painted flower pot napkin rings at an ARC TS, and couldn't resist, even though I had already found some stars/stripes rings at another TS. I will save those for another table.

The Johnson Brother plates have an round indent for a cup, but there weren't any matching cups at the TS, : (

I actually did use the silver knowing Paul Revere was a silversmith.

I didn't light the center candle as the wick is holding the small red star which is also wax. If I cut the wick to
light the candle, I lose the little star, or should I cut them apart and light both?? That is why I didn't light it, I couldn't figure out how without ruining the candle.

Today is also my oldest daughter's birthday. When she was little, she thought the fireworks were for her birthday!

Have a safe and explosively wonderful 4th!! LOL

What a lovely table! The dishes you chose and the way you layered them...its all so elegant.
Tho I wouldn't want to eat there and get ANY thing dirty.
I'd probably stand guard to be sure no one did, LOL.

hugs, Karen
