For my Independence Day table setting I decided to use dishes and glassware made for the US Bicentennial celebrated in 1976.
For the RED: Avon "Cape Cod" ruby red glass dishwares, based on an 1876 design.
For the BLUE: Staffordshire "Liberty Blue" transferware with historic engravings.
And for the WHITE I decided on milk glass pieces, including a patriotic motif plate by Westmoreland.
Staffordshire "Liberty Blue" dinner plates are placed on the slightly larger "Cape Cod" dinner plates. Avon Cape Cod ruby red bowls are for a first course salad. The flatware is Oneida"Raphael."
The two goblets are Avon Cape Cod ruby red goblets and Fostoria "Virginia" in blue.
The tablecloth is white with blue embroidery and napkins are white cotton with blue swirls. The napkin rings are Cape Cod.
In the centerpiece the white milk glass patriotic plate under "Cape Cod" vase is Westmoreland’s Flag Eagle and Fleur de Lis 7 ¼ inch plate.
The Westmoreland Doric candleholders with open-lace base, hold red tapers.
Among the bounties of summer are home-grown tomatoes and strawberries. So I scattterd ceramic strawberries and tomatoes to add a dash of true red.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you found the table setting pleasing. Do visit again soon, and please leave a comment.
