Thinking about Memorial Day (T)

Memorial Day is coming up quickly.  My mind has been on the outdoors and not inside so I pulled out a couple of tablescape posts from the past for Memorial Day.  

In 2014 I chose these restaurant style dishes for a patriotic and picnic like look.

I assembled the floral arrangement from things in my garden.

In 2015 I used the same dishes and created a buffet styled tablescape.

I noticed a common vein as I went through my posts since 2010 around Memorial Day.  I am always busier outside than in!

Next week I will have a new Memorial Day tablescaped pulled together.
Memorial Day is Monday May 30th this year.

I am joining the following blog parties:


  1. Beautiful Memorial Day tablescape. Love your use of the red, white and blue. Very patriotic. It's fun to look back through the archives of past posts. Yes, Never Forget, and Ever Honor! Have a great day! xo

  2. Gorgeous table setting. I really like your red checked napkins and want to look for some. Sheila

  3. Very pretty table settings, Liz. I particularly like the utensils in the blueberry preserves jar. I love old fashioned jars. Working outside in the spring is always what I want to do as well. With all the rain we've had that has kept outside chores to a minimum. Today we had no rain and sunny skies! ♥

  4. Beautiful tablescapes, I love red, white and blue . . . very patriotic and very country :)

  5. Liz, these tables make me want to stand up and sing the Star Spangled Banner. I really like the layered tablecloths in your first table and those great napkin rings that look like fireworks. That pitcher with the cherries on it is calling my name.

  6. Such good inspiration for us for Memorial Day. I was just thinking about Memorial Day and what kind of table I might design. I needed a little inspiration and you just gave it to me. Thanks Liz.

  7. Liz, what gorgeous tablescapes! Have a blessed Memorial Day weekend!


  8. What beautiful vignettes you've displayed on all your tables, Liz! I can't believe that Memorial Day is coming up already. How the months fly by as a get older!

  9. Love those red checked napkins Liz! And how clever to use a blueberry preserves jar for the flatware in your buffet vignette! Love the cherry pitcher too, all the tables have your special flair, I'm looking forward to your table this year,

  10. Such happy tablescapes reflecting a patriotic theme. You have captured Memorial Day perfectly . Love the checkered napkins and sparkly napkin ring. The plates are so cute. The time seems to fly y and we here we are again. Honoring and remembering should always be on our minds.

  11. Liz,
    Such pretty, patriotic and inspiring tablescapes. I love the way you have assembled your collections here for us and the fact that you are reminding us to honor those who are serving and remember those that have.

  12. Happy Memorial Day, Liz. Love the table!...Christine
