July 4th. Picnic

Hello Friends~ ~ ~
I was looking for a creative way to set up my picnic table.

Instead of a centerpiece I did an arrangement at one end of the table.
First I covered the table with a French Provencial cloth.

 I placed the napkins in an old crock.
You can purchase great big colorful napkins at Ikea.

 The silver in blue ball jars. . .
 The glasses in my Pottery Barn carrier. . .
 and the white dinner plates stacked all at one end of the table
under the old oak tree.
Everyone helped themselves from the bounty and found a place to sit under the wonderful oak tree.
The shaded coolness was appreciated by all.
Hope you are enjoying your holiday week.

TIP:  A centerpiece doesn't have to be in the center of the table.
Think outside the box and have fun!

I am linking to these great parties:

Happy 4th. Of July Week~ ~ ~Ahrisha~ ~ ~
