Memorial Day Weekend Buffet Dining

I thought I'd set the kitchen table up like a buffet for the Memorial Day weekend.

There will be apple pie, baked beans, grilled chicken, burgers and pasta salad this weekend.   The red and white cherry pitcher can serve our favorite raspberry iced tea. 

These Mosser ruby red goblets are a favorite and add a nice touch of red!  I got these because of the cherry design on them and I love that they are made in the U.S.  
Our area produces 75% of the tart cherry crop in the U.S. so we're big on cherry things!

The dishes are from another classic American manufacturer Home Laughlin.  They specialize in restaurant dinnerware these days.  Look at the bottom of the dishes at restaurants you attend and you may be surprised to see their name underneath!

Memorial Day weekend seems to be the kick-off to summer although this year it's a bit early!   I'll put out my flags and I know we'll be busy outside doing little projects.  I hope we can dine outside on the deck and enjoy some warm weather. 

Remember those who have died while serving our country.
 God Bless America!

Wishing you a great weekend!

  2. Gorgeous, sounds like a fabulous Memorial Day.

  3. LIz, what a pretty table. The cherry pitcher is darling. You have some great patriotic pieces. Interesting facts about Home Laughlin. Your little glasses are the sweetest and the menus sounds so tempting. I want to come to your house for this feast. Happy Memorial Day.

  6. Hi Liz! Your table is so beautiful and your food sounds so good. Didn't realize your area produces all of those wonderful cherries! I love me some cherries. Thank you so much, Liz, for naming my plants for me. I knew you would know! ;)
    Happy Memorial weekend,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Your table top buffet looks lovely, I love the red checked plates and the red and white cherry pitcher. The sweet red cherry glasses are perfect for a red white and blue summer table. I just found a set of plates with red checked borders at Goodwill last week that I am looking forward to using for breakfast on the patio (they have roosters in the middle of the plates). I was thinking about you while I was working on my patio fairy garden to get it cleaned up and ready for the Summer.

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend..... Candy

  11. That's such a pretty patriotic table setting! I hope you'll be able to enjoy the summer outside too. Food always tastes better outside.


  12. So festive, Liz. I love that cherry pitcher, and the dishes with the checked borders are perfect for the occasion. I also like using the blueberry preserves jar to hold the flatware. Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.

  13. Liz, what a festive and wonderful Memorial Day tablescape! All your pieces work perfectly together!

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend - and have a great week to come!
