Vintage WWII July 4th Dessert Table

Vintage July 4th

Like Marcie, I had family who fought in WWII so I was thrilled to see a July 4th table that truly honors those that have fought for our freedom. Designed by Marcie of Celebrating Moments by Marcie, this dessert table not only features a variety of sweet goodies but vintage touches from the typewriter and suitcases to the framed photos of soldiers!

Marcie used lots of her own props (including the typewriter, suitcases, and fan) as well as lots of props borrowed from friends (chalkboard, scale, trike, etc). Almost all of Marcie’s uncles fought in WWII so this was a very neat way to honor them and their generation. Props around your house can jazz up party tables and save money! So take a look in your basement, attic, kid’s rooms, etc for a variety of fun props for party tables – you might be surprised what you will find!

I also LOVE the flag cookies that even have a “vintage” feel to them! They were made by Marilyn Higgins of Whatever Whimsy!
