All across Blogland … and Main Street America … I’m seeing red, white, and blueIs it just me, or does it seem more people are decorating for Independence Day this year?

I’m curious …

If these were your dishes, what “feel” would your Fourth of July tablescape have?

Would you take the City Girl approach?

Or are you more of a Country Girl these days?

I’m feeling a little bit country, myself.
See these dishes on a Springtime Farmhouse Table.

See more tablescapes by “feel” HERE.

I’ll be joining:
Let’s Dish! @ Cuisine Kathleen
Tablescape Thursday @ Between Naps on the Porch \


  1. I am rarely with it enough to be the first comment maker, but here I am.

    And I would be the country girl too! (I like those dishes however they would be used, though.)

    I haven’t noticed more decorating for Independence Day, but I haven’t been looking. I shall start now.

  2. I know “comment maker” sounds stupid, but commenter isn’t a word and commentator sounds even sillier than comment maker. So…

  3. The Blue Calico seems to have the ability to bridge the gap between city and country, and am I spotting the Wedgwood English Countryside? That is such a delightful classic. My “Let Freedom Ring” tablescape is up, but I won’t post it till next week. I pray that there will be more Independence Day celebrations this year than ever before…and that the sheer joy of it will rock Washington’s soul alive. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  4. I do love that blue Calico!! The blue stemmed goblets are perfect. I love the white pieces you’ve chosen. Here’s to many splendid celebrations this year! xo marlis

  5. City or country, I love them all!

  6. Oh my, do I have to choose? I love both and just adore the calico blue dishes!!

  7. I like them both. I don’t think I can choose. I have a friend is selling her Calico dishes. She even has the napkin rings. Love all the layers.

  8. Beautifully done, Susan! You are wonderfully creative! xo Nellie

  9. GORGEOUS settings!!! I’m a little city and a little country … I’d mix and match… Happy Thursday my friend. Hugs and blessings, C. (HHL)

  10. I can be either..depends on mood! Gorgeous dishes.

  11. I don’t know. I would normally say country girl, but that city girl look is mighty good looking.



  12. Like Donnie and Marie, I’m a little bit country AND a little bit rock ‘n roll, so I could go either way. That’s the beauty of dishes with a classic look: no boundaries! I love that farm style coffee pot!

  13. Pretty post.Gorgeous dishes in gorgeous setting..:):)
