Patriotic Tablescape and Door Basket

Thank all of you who posted decor for the 4th of July and all the patriotic holidays.  You have inspired me to try one myself (with what I had on hand).  Soooo, I scoured the house looking for red, white and blue.  I found lots of red and white but not blue.  So I had to improvise with the blue a bit.

There is something about this bow that reminds me of the old man who was always going after bugs bunny with a shot gun.  Can you remember his name?? lol :)  :)  :)

America! Home of the Brave!

 These were given to Mr. "N" after 9/11 - I believe it was Cynthia who was somber and staring at our flag and snapped this amazing photo right after 9/11.   We will never forget!   God Bless America!

Last but not least is the front basket decorated for the 4th.  It didn't fit on my door with the screen door, so I placed on the brick just opposite the front door.

Close up of basket all ready for the 4th!  This was so easy.  The basket was given to me by my sweet daughter-in-law.  I had the bunch of flowers from Home Interior that I've had for quite a while.  Just put them inside and added the bow/ribbon that I got last year at the dollar store.

Thanks for all your inspirations.  I do have to get some more blue to keep on hand though.  Have a great day.
