A Patriotic Tablescape and Crunchy Cookies to Share


Friends I've got the 4th of July on my mind! I thought I'd gather a few goodies together and share a fun and simple tablescape with you. I've also got a delicious cookie recipe you'll want to try.

To put this tablescape together, I easily found goodies from around the house and also hit the dollar store for a few things.  I love beautiful dishes but advocate paper plates in the summertime so that's what we are using today.  Our centerpiece is made using a tray that I've had for years. On the tray, I've collected one of my pantry jars and filled it with good old Cracker Jacks. The iconic look of the package seemed perfect for this table. There's a little jar filled with Red Vines and an old family pitcher filled with flowers from the back of our lot that we lovingly called the weed patch meadow.

Each place setting has a cute little bucket filled with a napkin and utensils.

Now let's get to the cookies! This is a family favorite passed to me by my sweet sister-in-law.  The copy I have is a copy she had and the original name on it was Judy Deever. So...Judy Deever, wherever you are...thank you for these! You can right click and save this recipe image for these old-fashioned, delicious cookies.



Patriotic tablesetting using Dollar Tree items, Old fashioned oatmeal, pecans, and corn flakes with lots of butter and sugar make these delicious cookies that are perfect for any occasion.

Please consider pinning. :)

  4. Stacey, your table looks summer fresh to me. Love the patriotic touch with the red, white, and blue. I smiled at the Cracker Jack boxes. I like to use those as well as the small, red, metal Coke Cola bottles. Toss in some sparklers, and one's ready for a fun time.

  17. Cute and Yum all in one post Stacey. Good Morning. Hope your week is going well. My daughter and I just got a lot of the same table scape pieces you found for a baby shower. Her good friend from college is having her first baby boy and they are doing the shower in Red, white and blue. The theme is Red White and Due so these are really cute items. Wish I lived closer to come by and share in those cookies with you. Yummy. Enjoy.
    xoxo
