Summer Break has started
and we are
I thought I would set the table with a little
Red, White and Blue
as we get ready to celebrate
and the start of our summer fun!
I borrowed the sailboat from The boys bathroom.
It sits on their vanity for decor and
Jackson has been telling me all week long to put it back.
Just grabbed some red and white flowers from the floral
department in our local Publix and filled in with
some clips off my ferns on the back porch.
I found the nautical rope place mats at a Dillard's Clearance Store.
I have to admit, I was like a woman on a mission in there.
Although they do organize (sort of) by department...
there is no organization on the shelves themselves.
The place mats were all stacked on top of each other on a shelf and you had
to dig from the top to the bottom to see if you could find a matching set.
It was a little like digging for gold...
and the many boxes of napkins...
With Memorial Day right around the corner,
I figured it was a perfect time to bring them out.
Red chargers and crisp white plates top
the navy and white place mats.
Red sail boat napkin rings from Old Time Pottery
topped off the setting...
Red Cambridge acrylic handled flatware make it a little more festive.
And after pressing the napkins, the table is set.
Will you come and join us?

A close up of the edge of the charger and plate.
I like that the beading on the charger is repeated on the plate.
The chargers were from also from Old Time Pottery
back at Christmas time.
Clear stemware at each setting ready for some
We hope you enjoy your Memorial Day
with family and friends as we kick off the start to summer,
but most of all remembering those who have gone on
before us, fighting for our freedom
They Keep Us Free
In time of need, their will is sure
American, their freedom pure
Protect our life and liberty
Unselfishly, the keep us free
Each soldier knows what is at stake
The risk is grave, there's no mistake
With pride they serve our country strong
They face each foe to come along
Remember them while in your home
Or, where you choose to freely roam
Don't take for granted what you see
Some left this life, so it could be
To God, I urge you all to pray
For soldiers brave to face each day
We should be thankful, one and all
For those who march to meet each call
Thank you so much for stopping by...
come again, anytime.
I am going to join in at
Have a wonderful weekend!
