This Independence Day looks so different for our family. In the 19 years that I have been with my husband, we have always done the same thing. Pack up, head to the creek and spend the afternoon with all of our extended family.

The sound of fireworks, kids splashing, and the endless chatter has made for some wonderful memories.

I collect white ironstone dishes and they are perfect to use in table settings because they always coordinate with everything. The striped napkins are made from fabric that I had in my stash from Hobby Lobby. Mason jars serve as casual glassware and are our choice of drinking glasses around here.

Lowes sells various sizes and kinds so you can pick the one you like the most. They have a piece that screws in on the bottom but just unscrew that and your piece will sit flat.

This part may look scary but I promise it is not. You will need to drill holes for your flags to fit into. So find a drill bit just slightly bigger than the size of the pole and drill one in the top.

I then drilled 4 holes evenly around the sides for the rest of the flags. Add your flags and your finished!
