God Bless America

Welcome to a Patriotic Tablescape Blog Hop sponsored by Chloe Crabtree @Celebrate and Decorate and Andrea@ Design Morsels.

 As we celebrate the birthday of our country this year our nation has suffered some major catastrophic events beyond our control. It has been a difficult time in our country for the past four months.  

Welcome to a Patriotic Tablescape. I dedicate this post to the principles our country was founded on. May we remember them and strive to live our lives reflecting them.
In 1938, as fascism and war threatened Europe, Irving Berlin wrote these words...

While the storm clouds gather, far across the sea, Let us swear allegiance 

To a land that's free;

 Let us all be grateful,
For a land so fair,

As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.

God bless America, Land that I love,

Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God Bless America
My home sweet home.

Chloe Crabtree has sponsored these blog hops since 2017. Thank you, Chloe, for your dedication and hard work keeping our group together and running smoothly.

Blue and White platter, Urn and vases collected over the years

As we raise our voices in this solemn prayer, I am reminded of the inspired words of Jeremiah in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14

When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague, among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

May God Bless America!

  1. Bonnie, Irving Berlin’s words still ring true some 80 years later. Such a wonderful message for our country during these troubling times. I adore your patriotic table with your red, white and blue from the check tablecloth, blue and white ginger jar vase with hydrangeas and sweet mini vases of gardenias. So happy to be hopping with you today. God Bless America ♥

  2. I love your red goblets and that gingham cloth -- an d of course any table with hydrangeas makes me smile. Aren't they the best easy flower? Happy Fourth.

  3. Bonnie, I love the lyrics of God Bless America and that you included them in your patriotic post. The red checked tablecloth is a beautiful foundation for your table of red, white, and blue. The hydrangeas are gorgeous and the perfect flower for an Independence Day celebration. It is always a pleasure to hop with you! 🇺🇸

  5. Bonnie, what a loving tribute to our country! Your words brought a tear to my eye. Your table is such a beautiful sight for the eyes. With your gorgeous centerpiece to the pretty red, white, and blue colors everything is patriotically perfect! Happy Tuesday, sweet friend!

  6. Beautiful post Bonnie. God Bless America is what our country is about and how we should cherish it. With so much going on, we have to unite and be strong. Love your hydrangeas. The ginger jar is a perfect vessel for the flowers. The addition of flags at each setting is lovely. A wonderful patriotic table to honor and enjoy.

  7. Bonnie, this is a beautiful post. Your table is so patriotic and honors our red, white and blue. Irving Berlin's words certainly touch my heart and serve as such a reminder of all those who have fought and the many that have lost their lives for our freedom.

    Have a beautiful day, Bonnie. Know I am praying for your mother-in-law and your family. Many blessings.

  8. I love everything about this table! That platter in the center of the table is beautiful! I would love some red goblets like that. And girl, a US flag always adds to anything to me. Oh may we heed the words written in 2nd Chronicles. Hugs and blessings to you dear Bonnie. Cindy

  9. Thank you Bonnie, your table is perfect and so are your words...your message, quotes, and verses are so important for us all to remember as we struggle to make sense of these troubled days.

  13. How beautiful is this table?!! I swear, hydrangeas are the perfect flower for the 4th of July - and yours are gorgeous! God Bless America!

  14. Amen! I am praying for the hate in the hearts of so many to leave, and that those who are bitter will feel peace, once and for all.
    Bonnie, this table is a perfect example of high and low end mixing, vintage and new, which I love. I cannot believe those placemats are from Dollar Tree! What a great, classic look you've pulled together for this patriotic theme. And a wonderful acknowledgment to Chloe and Andrea, both.

  15. Bonnie, I am such a fan of red and white gingham and I think it mixes up beautifully with all of the other blue patterns for the fourth of July. I feel like I am in a little town ready to watch a parade when I see your homespun table. So cozy and welcoming. Have a great holiday.

  16. How appropriate to include Irving Berlin's beautiful song for the Land that we Love! Your checkered tablecloth is the perfect backdrop for those adorable Dollar Tree placemats. Your blue and white pieces and your centerpiece all complete the patriotic look. The verse at the end is also so fitting for our times. God Bless America!

  17. What a beautiful table you’ve set, Bonnie! I love the red and white buffalo check tablecloth. Your blue and white ginger jars, vases and the blue willow platter coordinate so well together. White hydrangeas are my favorite, and yours look stunning with the flags. It was a pleasure hopping with you. I hope you have a Happy 4th of July!

  18. Bonnie, I love the ginger jar vases and the hydrangeas. Everything about this tablescape is just stunning!!
