Patriotic Centerpiece {Southern Hospitality!}

Hey friends!   I am so excited to have my sweet, dear friend, Rhoda here on my blog today!  Rhoda holds a special place in my heart because she was one of my mom’s favorite bloggers, and one of the first bloggers that my mom told me to follow over 6 years ago.  Little did Mom know that sweet Rhoda would become one of my closest blog friends and that we would one day plan a blog conference together!  She took me under her wing when I was a new blogger and really introduced me to this wonderful blog world.  Rhoda is like the “matriarch” of home bloggers because she was one of the pioneers in our niche.  I LOVE her!


Welcome, Rhoda!


Happy Summer!

I’m Rhoda with Southern Hospitality, and I’m so excited to be here at Traci’s blog sharing with all her readers. Hope you are all having a wonderful summer so far. I love summer, although the heat this year is already getting to me, but as long as there is a pool nearby, I can stand it.

Since our nation’s birthday is right around the corner, I thought I’d share a patriotic project with you today. This is a cute little project I did last summer for the 4th of July, a patriotic clay pot centerpiece using stripes and stars and of course, red, white and blue, the colors of our American flag.

I’d love to share with you how I did it and invite you back to my blog, Southern Hospitality, for all the details.


Plain clay pots can be painted and decorated for so many special occasions and they are inexpensive and easy to work with.


I started by spray painting all of them white.


And here’s how they turned out with stars and stripes forever! They make a great centerpiece for the 4th of July. That’s the day to show your colors! Stop on over to my blog, Southern Hospitality, for all the details on this project and find lots more inspiration!

Thanks Traci, for having me guest post for you today. Traci is a dear friend of mine and I adore her.

I wish all of you a wonderful summer with family and friends. Summer is the time of year to get outside and enjoy all that this time of year incorporates!


Have a blessed day!
