FABBY: I Pledge Allegiance to the USA.



 This beautiful flag bow was given to me by my best friend Stephanie, she also lives here and we celebrate 4th. of July together, every year.
 This scalloped glass compote with blue, was my mother's gift to me, a while back.
 Red, white and blue floating stars.
 I made cheese burgers, fries, apple pie for dessert and coffee, for dinner tonight...is these menu Americana, or what?!
 Next to the table my French red striped chair...it went perfect, right?!
 I used my 30 yr. old flag as tablecloth.  This glass pitcher with the middle band in blue glass diamonds is an antique, it was English, from the 1940's, I bought it years ago at an antique shop.


  I was so lucky to find the USA  candles in a candle shop and I had a piece of wood where I put them and the whole thing is ansambled on an antique, church brass candle holder, my mil gave them to us...they're  two.

 Love the candle stars!  RED, WHITE AND BLUE FOR EVER!!
 The large picture, in the pewter frame, in the background , was taken 12 yrs. ago of us, American girls, Alexandra, Sofia and me.
 My Patriotic sweater and flag pin.
 The cute striped mugs I bought a while ago for a $1 each.

 I did the Patriotic table on my new Italian vintage table, because of the flag, the shape of it looked better on this table.  Bellow, my apple pie.....light and simple, not very heavy...hope so!
Happy 4th. of July to all my compatriots from blog land!!  All the way from Ecuador,... we, my American daughters, Alexandra and Sofia, along with me, wish the greatest country in the world to be God blessed  and safe.  We pledge aligance  to the United States of America and to the Flag....           Thanks to all the wonderful hostesses from the great parties I'll be linking to.  Thank you in advance for your  so nice and generous comments, as I'm always thrilled to hear from you!

What a festive tablescape, Fabby! I love your antique pitcher...so pretty! Your apple pie looks yummy! I celebrated the 4th when I lived in France with cheeseburgers and fries...not easy when you are the only American around! Enjoy your weekend!...hugs...Debbie

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Hi Fabby,

This is a WONDERFUL Fourth of July table!! It looks so pretty and festive. I really adore your frilly compote dish and your antique English pitcher. What gorgeous pieces. You really were lucky to find those USA candles; I live in the states, and I haven't seen anything like that. And the floating star candles are great, too. Your cheerful, happy spirit always comes through in all your posts. I enjoyed this very much.

Hugs to You,

Denise

Very festive! And that pie, what can I say - perfection! I am a lover of the red, white, and blue!

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Fabby...

I came back after you added this link, my friend! So glad that you are sharing this fabulous 4th of July table with us for the Sunday Favorites party as well!

My friend, first of all, just have to say (once again) how much I love your antique Italian marble table! It's gorgeous! I love your beautiful home!!!

Love, love, LOVE how you used the US flag for the table covering...it's perfect! Your place settings...soooo pretty! And...I really do like the red and blue striped mugs! Would love to have a set of those...and you can't beat the price! Hehe! What a resourceful use of the church altar candelabra! That was such a creative idea...using the patriotic bow and "USA" candles! It's a show stopper for sure!

Girlfriend, I just giggled when I seen what was on your menu! You are so right...hamburgers, french fries and apple pie...doesn't get any more "American" than that1 Hehe!

Again, thank you for sharing your lovely patriotic table with us! You have a wonderful and safe trip, dear friend!

Love ya,
Chari

Kelsey @ Tattered and Inked said...

Love this! It is all so beautiful- love all the Americana and those mugs are so cute! Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog :)

TerriLlyn said...

This is my first time visiting your blog. I was delighted with your Independence Day table until I realized that you used a flag as a table cloth. This is a great dishonor to the flag my father died to defend. I hope and pray that you will find another cloth for your beautiful table and put the flag in the place of honor it deserves.

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Such a pretty table and so perfect for the upcoming festivities. I've seen star candles and almost bought the the other day, but I've never seen the USA candles. I really like those!

bj said...

Oh, Fabby, your tribute to the 4th is so sweet, it brought tears to my eyes. You are so sweet to celebrate this festive time in the USA.
Your table is just adorable. I would never have thought to use my flag for a tablecover but, if you don't mind, I am using that idea for MY 4th table.
I love everything about this beautiful post. :)
hugs and kisses, bj

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Everything is very pretty, looks like you're all set for the 4th-enjoy:@)

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Fabby, Why do I keep hearing "God bless America" humming in the background. This is a FABBY-U-LOUS salute to Old Glory and our wonderful country.
Your attention to detail is inspiring! I would love those mugs!
Thank you for participating in ON THE MENU MONDAY and for loving our country!!!!
