Patriotic Brunch and Hoosier Decor

Hey everyone!  What fun what fun what fun!  We decked the kitchen hoosier out with red, whites, and blues...and lots of food.
Started the brunch out with some yummy food.
I made individual quiches, the sweetest grapefruit (when it is grown in really hot climates it harvests sweeter), breakfast sweet tea, hot coffee with biscotti and fruit salad.
I sliced the melon in thin slices then used a star cookie cutter to cut it into star shapes. Loved how it ended up looking.  Honeydew melon, watermelon and blueberries for red white and blue.
On the porch I put out several little quilts and pillows for eating.  There is a cool breeze here in the morning.

We loaded up our plates and headed outside.
Be sure to see my Patriotic tablescape here @

Vintage stove, chairs, shutters, doors and tables....
love the vintage Americana look.
So you have seen my porch and part of my kitchen decorated for the 4th...hope you are doing something festive at your home for this week!
