I really wanted to get this patriotic totem done before the 4th, where we have a big picnic before the fireworks. It is for table decoration, not the garden, hence the right-side-up plates, which I'll use for snacks, confetti, or who knnows!

I also put together matching votive and taper holders, one of each combined, so you can use them either way - just flip em over!

You did do it, and very well I might add. I love the patriotic colors. The litle candle holders are a good idea too. You'll be hooked before you know it.

Lucky you to find a red vase! They aren't so easy to come by. I like the idea that your totem can be used as a garden decoration or a serving piece too. It would look great on a 4th of July buffet. Ditto for the clever candle holders too! Keep the totems coming!
