I am so ready for Memorial Day! I just love the old red, white, and blue and summertime! When I first moved to Utah I was surprised at how many flowers are put on graves -- it really is a pretty sight! It's almost that time of year again....yeah! It's the official start of summer.
The last day of school for my kids is tomorrow! Yahoo! I am ready after the last week of two band concerts, two piano recitals, two dance rehearsals and a dance concert.
It's "time" to start thinking about Memorial Day!
I found these plates at Target quite a few years ago. They are called "Spirit of Flag" plates designed by Warren Kimble for Brandon House. I bought eight dessert plates. Each plate has a different historic flag pictured. This plate is called the "Birthday Flag."
The second plate I will show you is called "The New Millennium Flag."
I set the table with my ruby goblets. I love how the light shines through them.
I put some Bacopa in a basket. It is one of my favorite outdoor summer plants.
A good view of the candlestick?

My final shot!
I think that there is nothing more American than baseball and Baby Ruth candy bars NOT inspired by the "Babe." Click on HERE to read about the naming of the Babe Ruth candy bar. Please take one or two candy bars before you leave. Thanks for stopping by!
Stop by Between Naps at the Porch to see wonderful and inspiring tablescapes.
