This patriotic table setting was brought about by the Target Dollar Spot.
I could not pass up these cute patriotic pillows.
I know I could easily make them, but it seemed silly when the pillows were only $3 each.
I liked the texture of the patriotic hand towels and
I thought they might work perfect for napkins and placemats.
Today we received the invitation for the annual Brunswick Lane Memorial Day Party so I decided it was okay to go patriotic in the dining room.
The hand towels are the perfect size to use as a napkin tied in a knot.
In my pre-blogging days, the napkin usually went to the left of the plate with the flatware on top of it,
but I have become much more creative in my table settings after seeing so many beautiful tables on blogs and Pinterest.
The star plate from Fishes Eddy I used as a centerpiece is a favorite reminder of my first visit to New York City.
There is always a bit of a patriotic thing going on in the living room
and so I think the new Target pillows will be sticking around at least until the 4th of July.
I am sure by then Target will have come up with some other cheap decor to lure me in!
