Tabletop Starter

I haven't had the time to get a 4th. of July tablescape ready but thought I would share the start here at Marty's Tabletop Tuesday.  I made a tablecloth out of a paint drop cloth yesterday CLICK HERE  and decided to use it as the base of my 4th. of July table. 

On top of the table cloth I added an old garland that I purchased off of ebay several years ago.

This piece is over eight feet long and had the standard gromets on it so I assume it hung from an upper balcony of a home or business at one time.

I have two of these bird house/flag holders that I purchased many years ago at a local store.  They were on the sale table and I knew I'd find a way to use them on the porch.

The silver tray is the start of a tablescape I have in mind but haven't gotten a clear idea of yet.  Hopefully something will come to mind very soon.

Looks like our black lab Maggie decided to take a peek out and see what I was up to.

Your asparagus fern is so luscious and full! it makes a nice contrast to the drop cloth and the red in the bunting! Happy 4th! Linda

Your table looks quite patriotic. Love the drop cloth tablecloth with the ruffle. Adding the flag runner to it adds the perfect touch.
