Centerpiece of the Month~ July

For the month of July, I decided to do something different for the Centerpiece of the Month. I spent time scouring the blogs to find some great centerpieces for 4th of July celebrations. You won't believe what I found.
First a close up of what was on my table~

Inspire Me Crafts created a 4th of July Centerpiece of festive flags.
There was a baseball theme at Tray Bella . Now that is a fun way to use those baseballs laying around the house.
The party at Cottage Affairs included some dominos! Next time Bill and I will be over~ and maybe bring a squash casserole for dinner. We play a mean game of Mexican Train Dominos.

For the FINALE~ PalmaBella takes the cake... with a centerpiece of cupcakes. Any blogger can appreciate the effort it took to get this shot!

You know that labor day is right around the corner... maybe these will give you some ideas.

Y'all send in your centerpieces for August!

I especially love the red dominos and whistles. The baseball idea is delightful. And so are the cupcakes. Now I'm hungry.

Baseballs and cupcakes...what defines summer better than that (in my little world, that is)?

Love the baseball one. I've been wondering what to do with all our lingering sports I know.
