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!
