Tablescapes, Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are spending this day with family and friends.  We are celebrating in our favorite spot,  remembering all those that have sacrificed for our freedom,  and counting our blessings.

Mem Day

If you look carefully at the shape in the distance you will see a red, white, and blue parasail floating over the Gulf waters~

Memorial Day

My good friend SC, who is  CC’s other grandmother,  surprised me with these little chairs for Mother’s Day, Sweet!  I can’t wait to use them all over the place this summer~

    Love the boat centerpiece! You put some fun things in there. I like the glass floats, beach chair, blue bottles and flags you put in it. It gives me inspiration for my nautical family room. The pattern on the dishes goes great with everything! What a nice setting and location!

  18. Bev says:

    Love everything about this table, especially your creative centerpiece!

  19. Can you tell me where to buy the plates that you have shown here? I was gifted a set like that and have not been able to find matching pieces despite all my searching. Please help! Everything looks amazing, by the way!!

    Hi! Can you tell me where you bought your plates? I was gifted a set of two like that and have been searching high and low online to find where I can buy more. Everything looks lovely!!

    • hi Jess, I got the plates at Christmas Tree Shops several years ago, and then found the salad plates last year. If you can’t find any more you could always mix them with square white or navy plates. Old Time Pottery has a great selection of white ware. Good luck!
