July 4th : A Ducky Day!

The reason I am posting a July 4th table is due to all of the new things I found shopping this week! The weather is predicted to be cooler on July 4th!
Of course, no cooking but barbeque from Spring Creek!
Our patio table is set to be photographed, but I will recreate this on the morning of the 4th.  
 I was pleased to find the red and white floral napkins at the first of summer, they were called Patio and I love the thrift store red flatware.
 The Pfaltzgraff  white dinner plate from CTS!
  The fun part is the cute star shape plates with 3 different patterns from Michael.s. This one has the red and white flag stripes.
My inspiration for the table are the 6 darling ducks with 3 different patriotic suits. This ducky is decked out a blue and white suit with a striped hat which coordinates with the red and white stripe plate. 
Another star plate has blue with white stars. 
 Matching the plate is a ducky sporting a head full of stars and a red and white striped suit.
 A goblet by Libbey has a star pattern. It is ready for a serving of iced tea or sweet tea to cool us off!
 Two blue crystal pitchers are styled with small patriotic flag to repeat the stars and stripes theme for the centerpiece.
Completing the centerpiece are the three red lanterns and the candles will be lit as the sun sets on our independence day holiday!
The two duckies covered in blue with white stars have patriotic striped wings .....
Each ducky is centered on the perfect red and blue stars plate finishing the patriotic theme on our woven basket coffee table!
Our sweet Shelby, rough collie, is waiting patiently for us to finish and then for a pet and treat! She is 10 years old with arthritis and is a treasure which we are thankful that every morning she greets us with a big tail wag!
Our 4th will be filled with flags, food and family, including two with four paws. 
Our greatest blessing is our freedom given to this nation by our forefathers and the sacrifice of every man and woman who has and is serving to keep us safe at home and abroad!
Please fly your flag on the 4th to celebrate our Freedom!
