Getting Ready to Celebrate July 4th!

We are having some friends over to celebrate the Fourth of July. It has been so hot here in the Houston area that we are going to have to cook and eat inside. I just can't ask my dear husband to stand over a hot grill!!
We are having homemade cupcakes for dessert.
Thanks for joining me for Tablescape Thursday. I have been having so much fun playing with my dishes!
Please be sure and stop by and visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to enjoy some beautiful eye candy.
I hope you all have a fabulous and safe July 4th.

  14. I came back by to mention that I am hosting a Christmas in July Tablescape Party at my Playing Dishes blog. There will be one held each Saturday this month. Please come and participate or at least visit. A holiday tablecloth will be given away on the last Saturday, July 25. Info on signups is available by clicking my sidebar memes available on both my blogs.

    I am also having a weekly Christmas giveaway at my Christmas Memories in My Heart blog. Weekly entries are closed out a midnight on Wednesday for this.

    Hopefully some of you tablescape regulars will pull together a tablescape for CIJ or pull out some photos from last year to post.

    Happy CIJ!
