Memorial Day Tablescape

I know, I know, I haven't posted lately. I've been so busy trying to get all my work done so I can go on vacation next week. And where am I going? Nowhere. But it still takes a lot of work to go nowhere. lol.

Plus my laptop took a dump so I have to borrow hubby's computer.

And I had to watch the finale of Dancing with the Stars and American Idol. You know, I had real important stuff to do.

I thought I would at least try & share a little tablescape this week. Even if I recycled it.

A quickie tablescape for Memorial Day. The best part of this tablescape is that it also works for the 4th of July.

I don't have many photos of this table as I wasn't going to share it. It was actually my back up table from 4th of July last year. But this year, it's going to serve as my back up table for Memorial Day.

Everything used in the place settings I bought last year. The flag place mats came from Dollar Tree. The white chargers from The red & blue plates and flatware from Big Lots. The napkins are actually kitchen towels from Kohl's.

Too bad this photo turned out blurry.

Placed a few flags in some vintage bottles, added a patriotic star from Target (last year). Top with a cloche, place on a cake plate & instant centerpiece.

I was working on a super fantabulous Memorial Day table to share with you all, but we had a little fire at our house tonight. Don't worry, everything is OK except for the pampas grass & part of our fence. I'll post about it later.
