I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

Memorial Day Lunch

My Inspiration for this Tablescape
was Memorial Day lunch with family. I did use two runners for the table.

This is a day we recognize the ultimate sacrifice men and women
made defending this great Nation the U.S.A.

I have some new white dishes from Ebay set of six..
Pavillion by Rrincess House. Over safe to 400'F~~

I purchased some Flags from the 
Dollar Store for some pop...

I wish you all a safe Memorial Day...

Looking down at my Tablescape.!!
The Mums are going in my Rock Garden tomorrow..

We are going to see the Flag raised at the Houston National Cemetery this morning.


This is going to be a laid back day with family!!
Hamburgers, Hot dogs with potato salad and Bush's baked beans~~
For dessert Apple pie..

I hope you all come Back!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!!
I am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.

Even though I'm a Canadian, I love the red, white and blue of the American flag! Your table is beautiful. Our flag is red and white. Not very exciting to decorate with but the stars and stripes are great. I love it!
