A Blue...

... Red and White 4th of July!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. We certainly did.

Welcome to Blue Monday and thank you Sally (Smilly Sally's Blog) for hosting Blue Monday every week!
I wanted to share with you a few photos of my table.

I made this M&M tablecloth w/matching napkins many many years ago. My in-laws and I use it for every use it every patriotic holiday. Either at our house, the lake house (before FIL sold it) or at my IL's house. The napkins are a generous 22". When I make napkins, I make them big enough to cover your lap!!! Look at how the patriotic M&M's and the white stars stand out on the blue fabric.

And dessert! Luscious blueberries {yum!} on the fruit pizza! Look at that deep blue color! And so fresh and jucy! This is one of our favorite desserts

And we cannot forget table decorations! After reading about all the bargains Gloria got at the $$$ Tree a couple of weeks ago, I went there to see what I could find. Flag garland. I decorated the chandi with it, used it for napkin holders and decorated my teapot with it. Oh, and I had DH and DD pick up red and white flowers for me. Actually DH was afraid to pick out flowers and had DD do it. Didn't she do a great job! I am tired of always using a clear vase... and there was one of my tea pots sitting there. Just the perfect shade blue and there were even two Teapartys here in the B'ham area Sat. Perfect! (This pot btw also makes a perfect pot of tea!)
I hope that you enjoyed my Blue Monday Post. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I read each and everyone!

Hello Melisa, I sure enjoyed your 4th of July decorations and celebration. The M&M tablecloth and big napkins are my fave. I like the fact that everyone had input in the decorations. Fun for everyone. a great job of decorating.

We have been gone for almost two months and visiting has been slim to none. I'm glad to visit you again today.

Thank you for stopping by Blue Monday post two Mondays ago. Sorry it's taken me a while to get back with you. We have been gone.

Missy I loved your table cloth and napkins. I loved all of the colors. And that dessert - Yummy. Great idea with the tea pot I also get tired of clear vases.

Good Morning Melissa!
I hope this bit of info will help you out in your search for a smaller Eiffel tower. I got mine from the Garden section last year in Hobby Lobby. BUT they are available as part of the orderable inventory for the Home Accents dept. You should be able to find it on the same aisle as the larger black metal ones. Look across the bottom of that shelf at the tags and there should be a tag for them to order you one. If not, let me know and I'll get you the SKU# for it so they can get one in for you! Good Luck!

Hey Melissa,
Here's the SKU for that Eiffel tower, it's 466391... $24.99! Hope this helps you get one! *smiles*
