Memorial Day Table and A Tribute

Are you ready for a little red, white and blue? Let's bring it on!
We love to start our Memorial Day celebrations here in the U.S. by bringing out our patriotic colors of red, white and blue.
Whether it's a backyard barbecue,  a picnic at the park, or a trip to the beach, we certainly know how to celebrate freedom.

Easy Memorial Day Menu from Food Network
Grilled Hotdogs for my grandsons
The picture came from the site.

I changed a few things on my bread rack to carry out my Red, White and Blue Theme. My Peggy Karr Glass flag plate is such a beautiful piece then with a stack of small red plates and bowls added, it is now a dessert center.

It's kind of fun peeking into the bowl and seeing the star, I hope it is a surprise to my family as they gather around the table.

As we celebrate Memorial Day, we pay tribute to the fallen soldiers who have given their lives defending our freedom.

Thanks for stopping by  - Judy

I just started visiting about and looking at tables a little while ago, and I can tell already that yours is going to be one of my very favorites this week. I love the layering you did here with the tablecloth and the round red place mats. It's just full to the brim with red, white, and blue, and I really love it.

I also love your baker's rack. I pinned it. I need good baker's rack inspiration!
