Happy Independence Day everybody!
Not being American, 4th of July is not as big of a deal for me as it might be for my neighbors, but I like the idea of celebrating in general so I don't mind the opportunity to dress up the table a bit.
Other than good food, we are going to have a super chill day. I've worked on all of the travel preparations all weekend so I'm kind of beat. I think I'll skip the fireworks and stay at the table for another serving of strawberries instead.
This year, I made some super quick denim placemats for the table. The durability and rustic style represents some of America's best characters n my opinion. My Skultuna brass Lily candle stick, Rörstrands "Swedish Grace" dinner plates and the the hand blown wine glasses from Storsjohyttan in the northern part of Sweden where I grew up joins forces with a white linen cloth and some IKEA napkins. I found some dark red tulips at the grocery store too..I hope they make it through the evening in this heat!
