So, here's my table for Memorial Day. Since it's a quiet weekend and no huge outdoor event so there will be no paper plates.
A while back I found some plates at Goodwill that I thought would be great for a patriotic table setting. Unfortunately, I couldn't make them work. Although I love the little flags on them, I just wasn't happy with the aqua with the red, white and blue.
So I went with the checkered.
The checkered plates are from Sakura, Farmstand Fruit by David Carter Brown;
the placemats and dishtowel napkins came from the Dollar Tree as did the candle holders and the goblets;
I can't remember where I got the white and red plate star plates,
the 'chargers' are a couple of Mikasa Maxima Coronet Blue (they are pale blue in the center) that came from a thrift store, and;
the flatware is my everyday rusty stainlesss.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a meaningful Memorial Day.
