Hey friends! Today I am so excited to join The Pinterest Challenge hosted by my good friend Cindy at County Road 407! The Pinterest Challenge is a group of talented ladies that get together once a month to put our personal spin on inspiring decor found on Pinterest!
Our inspiration photo from Pinterest is this gorgeous summer tablescape by Karen at Sanctuary Home Décor.
If you are coming over from Postcards From The Ridge, wasn’t Angie’s tablscape using pastel florals so pretty?
For my tablescape, I took the liberty (pun not intended) to do a patriotic theme using berry sprays and American flags instead of flowers. It’s more of a stretch than usual for me for the Pinterest challenge and at first I wondered if I should depart this far from the inspiration photo. But then I realized the photo inspired me to create this tablescape and is the whole point of the challenge.
I bought my vintage milk glass vases in a lot off of Facebook Marketplace. You can read the story behind them in my post 5 tips for thrifting on Facebook Marketplace.
I bought the berry sprigs and American flags from Amazon. I’ll put the links for the berry sprigs at the end of this post.
I tied a bow on some of the flags and put them on top of the place settings as a party favor for my dinner guests. If I wanted to do a seating arrangement, I would put a guest’s name on a gift tag and attach it to the flag.
I didn’t get crazy with decorating my hutch like I usually do 🙂 I put a together a simple floral arrangement in a pitcher using faux florals in patriotic colors and a American flag. I bought the faux florals from Amazon too and I’ll include the link for them at the end of the post. I filled the baskets hanging on either side of my hutch with more flags.
That’s it for my tablescape! I hope you enjoyed it 🙂 Here is the Amazon shopping list for this post:

Cindy LONG says
Just beautiful Michelle! I love your collection of ironstone and milk glass vases and how you used the berry sprays! So American Farmhouse patriotic!
Barbara Chapman says
Michelle, I love that you’ve changed up the flowers for patriotic flags and sparkler picks!! Honoring our country is always a good thing. <3 I love that you've shared so many creamware pieces in your hutch and the pretty milk glass bottles on your table! So light and airy!!
Enjoy your beautiful table and home,
I love this and it’s perfectly patriotic! Even the wall hangings look fabulous. I remember the milk glass at my grandmothers and aunts houses. Wish I had some of my own. Gives me a reason to keep hitting those antique stores! Thank you so much for joining in. It all looks fantabulous. Pinned
Lora Bloomquist says
I love your version, Michelle! The flags in the milkglass vases are just perfect. I want to know the story on the placemats, though. They totally look like old feedsacks. Where did you get them?
Julie Briones says
Your table is definitely patriotic, and I love the milk glass!

Oh, and it looks like your link to Marty isn’t working. 🙂
What a fun and timely spin on things, Michelle! This is great inspiration for the 4th of July, which I now realize is just around the corner. Beautiful job on the centerpieces! I’ve always loved your hutch, by the way.
Michelle | Thistle Key Lane says
Your table setting is perfect for July 4th and I love the berry sprays in the milk glass vases. Wonderful spin on the inspirationI! Brilliant Michelle!
Kim | Shiplap and Shells says
What a beautiful table Michelle! I love how you used flags instead of flowers. And the milk glass vases make such a statement. Just beautiful!
Christy Little says
This is so beautiful and festive for celebrating the USA! I just love it. It has also reminded me that I don’t have a single piece of milk glass. I feel a need to go antiquing now to remedy that!
Michelle, I love your milk glass vases. I clicked over to your post on Facebook Market Place as I’ve never shopped there. The simple ways that you used the American flags look festive and colorful. You are at foe 4th of July.
Oh my goodness! I absolutely adore your patriotic table!
Angie @ Postcards from the Ridge says
Michelle, I adore your patriotic table! The milk glass vases and American flags are perfect for the 4th of July. And I love how you styled your hutch so simply and beautifully.
Amy Johnson says
I LOVE this! It’s so cute and simple, yet delivers a big wow! I also love how inexpensive this is. You can find flags at the Dollar Store and milk glass vases at a thrift shop. I have so many of those little white vases in my stash.
Thank you so much Amy! I’m so happy my tablescape inspired you! 🙂
I have several milkglass bud vases just like yours, so your centerpiece really gave me some great ideas. The patriotic berry sprays look so nice contrasting with those white vases. What a great spin on this challenge!
