Strike up the band !!!!

Happy 4th of July
 The Band is ready to play patriotic songs for example, The Star Spangle  Banner, America The Beautiful and God Bless America!
 If they start to march some of the best will be the Stars and Stripes Forever, You're A Grand Old Flag and This Land is Your Land!
 Blue and red candleholders will be lighted as the darkness descends!
Two band members are keeping time on the drum and horn!
 A flag runner sets the patriotic musical mood.
Two more band members are accomplished playing the cymbals and flute.
 Surrounding the band stand are hydrangeas placed in red and white striped or blue and white stars jars found at Michaels. The band stand is created by the large red ceramic stand by Boradello Pinerho. The top white ceramic stand is by Arlington!
 The band leader strikes up the band in a rousing musical number. The band members and flag runner are from The Rusty Chandelier.
 Standing tall the leader keeps the rhythm by carrying the US flag!
 Cardew Design creates the perfect patriotic teapot with a teapot shape print of the American flag!
 U. S. A. TEA rings the rim of the teapot while more American flag teapots circle the lid.
 The pride of the Red, White and Blue is shown in the shapes and hues of the place setting.
 The top layer is a red star shape bowl by Fresh!
 The second layer of plates is the blue and white checked salad by At Home with Marieke.
 Your next layer is the white scalloped and beaded ceramic dinner plate by Gallery Tabletops "Le Provence".
 Catch the Sun flatware with red and white or blue and white gingham has a comfy feel!
 Bring more of the patriotic theme is the blue with white stars of the place mats and napkins by Pottery Barn. Encircling the napkin is the metal star napkin ring also by Pottery Barn. The darling bowl of blue and white check is part of the ceramic pieces.
One of the cutest place card holders is the red ant by who else but Pottery Barn!
 The goblet and cup will hold the drinks.
 Ivima glassware company designed the red hobnail water goblet which adds a spark of color!
 The blue and white checked cup is also by At Home with Marieke.
 Hot tea will be served from the USA teapot and poured into the blue and white checked cup!
 Bigelow is the brand of tea for 4th and the flavor of the day is Constant Comment. The aroma is of orange and sweet spice when steeping.
A blue or red star mason jar is lighted by a white candle for a friendly mood!
I will be posting this on the following tea blogs; 
and Bernideen's Tea Time Blog,
along with the blog of;
Between Naps on the Porch,

I will also post on them this week!
