This is the table that I set for lunchtime on the Fourth of July when our house guests arrived. I started with my Mom’s wedding china (Heinrich Royal Selb for J.L. Hudson) and a vintage table cloth I found at our local junk store. I added my Mother-in-Law’s Salt and Pepper Shakers, an antique Blue and White Water Pitcher with gold accents by S. Hancock and Sons, a pair of white McCoy Pottery vases for the flower arrangements, a collection of various crystal candle holders with Perin-Mowen beeswax candles, my Matte Gold Flatware, Linen napkins from Privet House, reproduction Depression Glass Tumblers – I got mine at ABC Carpet and Home, but you can find very similar ones at Anthropologie, and red braided raffia placemats – you can find similar ones at Amazon.And right before we sat down to lunch, my four year old niece asked to go in the pantry to see all the pretty things in the glass cabinet under the window. It was then that I asked her to help me add the perfect finishing touch to the table decor for our Fourth of July celebration – my Statue of Liberty collection of Limoges porcelain snuff boxes!I suppose if I were the type of blog writer that has an “editorial calendar” and was truly on top of all this blogging stuff, I would have posted these images the week before last. We would have been leading into the Fourth of July holiday and people could have pinned, linked back, and possibly even been inspired to create a red, white, and blue tablescape for their holiday weekend.But the truth is that these red, white, and blue decorations didn’t exist until the third of July, and I am not the type of blogger who is scheduling styled photo shoots for my blog. Heck, I am lucky to snap a photo with my real camera. I’ve found that it’s a heck of a lot easier to opt for a few instagram pictures and call it a day.I hesitate in posting this tabletop because it’s dated Fourth of July, but if I keep stopping myself from posting things because they happened last week – I may never post again! Is it just me, or is anyone else feeling a little behind in the blog-i-sphere now that the fast-moving social media world is moving at real-time speed?
