Some Gave All- Memorial Day 2016


I placed a flameless tea light inside representing a symbolic eternal flame.

I dressed the table with this oversized flag scarf- I found it last summer at Younker's.  Since it will just be the two of us I kept the table simple.  

 On a visit to T.J. Maxx a few weeks back I found a package of placemats with a red, white, and blue paisley design that I couldn't resist.  

 I chose these dishes for a patriotic color combination.

I found these Ralph Lauren cups back in January at T.J. Maxx and I've also collected these crystal tumblers through T.J's also by Ralph Lauren.  

I'll probably make the usual potato salad, pasta salad, baked beans and we'll grill dogs, and burgers. Of course we can't forget some pie either!

  1. Liz,
    Such a charming and classy Memorial table you have created. I really like the Flag scarf for the table cloth, it adds such a meaningful touch.
    This video is incredible and has me weepy, in a good sort of way.
    Thank you for sharing this video and bringing back the patriotism you and I grew up with.
    Happy Memorial Day weekend to you!

  11. Such a beautiful and inspiring tablescape, Liz....my favorite part is your tea light for the eternal flame. My father was a WWII veteran, and to the day he died, my dad was the quietest soldier....never spent a minute of his life talking about his experiences and sacrifices. He was just so proud to have served his country.
