Getting Ready for the Red, White, and Blue

With a busy school year, Kenny finishing up classes and graduating, family in so many locations now, I haven't had a chance to do something like this in quite a while.  Since the boys have moved out, and have families of their own, it's just Kenny and me in this empty nest.  Our oldest is not too far away, so we get to see them often.  However, with my other son and his sweet little family further away, their work schedules, etc., we don't get to see them as often as I'd like.
Anyway, even though it might just be the two of us celebrating the 4th at our house, I decided to decorate anyway.  [I set a place for my oldest son and his girlfriend, in hopes that they get to be here!] 
I LOVE mixing/matching my place settings. 
 I just think it's FUN!
[And I love using vintage sheets for tablecloths!]
 It's just a small, quaint little setting, but that's all the two of us [ but hopefully 4 of us, at least] need.  Our backdoor neighbors always put on quite a fireworks show, so we can see them from our screened-in porch.  Simple but sweet, I think.

Today, I'm linking to Rednesday.  Head over and check out all the red that's being shared!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
Stay safe and have lots of FUN!

Looks like you're all ready for the 4th with that sweet tablesetting! I still haven't decorated inside. It's going to be 101 degrees tomorrow, so I'm thinking that would be a good day to just stay inside and red white and blue it up!
Happy REDnesday,

Holidays always sneak up on me! Thanks for the heads up! Next week will be quite a wild red/whit&blue Rednesday!
