Our Patriotic Decor

oyster_shell_wreaths2

I’m just starting my patriotic decor collection. So far I only have miniature flags. It’s a start!
Graham (my 3 year old) is the perfect age to understand holidays so it’s time to start celebrating/teaching with him.
He helped me add flags to our front door oyster shell wreaths and to two vases on our dining tables inside.

I decorated Graham & Arden’s little table for the 4th of July with their navy gingham place mats,
mini flags in a pottery vase, red & white striped straws, navy gingham flatware, and white & light blue dishes.

Graham and I also added four miniature american flags to our succulent glass vase on the dining room table.

We hope you have a happy 4th of July!

New Dining Room Rug + Summer Table

diningroom2

Happy 4th of July week! Our house is decorated for summer so I thought it would be the perfect time to share my most recent purchase – a dining room rug! When Michael and I were designing our house plan we decided to forgo a formal dining room. We knew it would only get used a few times a year (maybe!?). We opted to have a large dining table area that flowed between our kitchen and living room. We rarely entertain for dinner gatherings but we wanted a spot for our family to eat meals each day. My goal was to create a spot that was casual but pretty.

Our dining table seats 8 but we usually leave two chairs in storage unless we’re hosting a large gathering.
It was one of the first items we purchased for our first home back in 2008 in Pennsylvania.
This table has moved with us to four different homes and it has been well loved.

The table is layered with a bleached burlap table runner, driftwood garlands, and faux sea fans as place mats.
My black linen napkins tie in to the black table top. Love their white polka dot trim!

Our dining table has a view overlooking our back porch and wooded back yard.
Excuse the wooden train tracks on the floor. We can’t escape trains in our home with two little boys!
My three year old, Graham, keeps his trains in the woven basket on the floor in the corner.

 I’ve been a Juliska collector for about five years. I’ve slowly collected enough pieces for us to use as our every day dishes. I used to save them for special occasions but then thought it’s silly not to use them and enjoy them. I mix and match the Jardin du Monde and Berry & Thread whitewash collections.

I filled this glass serving dish with starfish then topped it off with faux succulents.
My house colors are mostly neutral shades but I do enjoy a pop of rustic muted green tones.

Our new rug is pale putty gray with a white contrasting design. It’s an 8 x 10 and the perfect size for our table.
