Stars and Stripes, and Checks and Polka Dots Too!

Here is the first Fourth of July tablescape I've ever done.

I started with a tablecloth I got years ago when I was still in college...from Target I think.  
The place mats are from HomeGoods ($6.99 for all four). 

The white plates are Husbands from his bachelor days, so I have no info on them.

The red plates I got a Target in February for Valentine's ($1.79/each).
The star plates are from Michael's ($1.00/each).

The napkins are from World Market ($2.99/each).  A little more than I normally pay for napkins (cause I'm a cheapo, but I'm also a sucker for anchors).

The glasses are from Hobby Lobby (don't remember how much they were, but we bought 'em when they were 50% off).  The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby too.  The coasters are also Husband's so I don't know anything about their history either.

The pails are from the Dollar Spot at Target, with stars and pinwheels from Hobby Lobby (only $1/each).  The candle is from HomeGoods ($7.99).  The mini-cake plate I made with things found at GoodWill

With lots of layers and patterns, I'm loving the way this turned out.

 The white place mat is from Bed Bath & Beyond that I got at an end of season sale when I was working there.  With my employee discount I think I only paid about a $1 for each one.

Now to plan a yummy Independence Day meal to complete the celebration...
