In memory of those who have gone before, whether Veteran or family and friends, Memorial Day is set aside for us to pay tribute. Many put out flags at Veteran's cemeteries and some of our local cemeteries have a "decoration day" for remembering those buried there. Some of us get a vacation day for this remembrance and lots get together for a family and friends meal.
These Willow House pieces might give you an idea for a table setting. I used the Eyelet Ribbon Plate as a charger on a blue placemat and flag print bandanas woven through the "eyelets". If you need a square charger with the same idea, you could use our Dress-Me-Up glass Platter. Or, you could use red, white and blue ribbon and you could also use our Gramercy Ribbon Plate, (which is one you can also write on with a dry erase marker and you could even bake something on it and then weave the ribbon through it!) If you buy one of the Gramercy plates and want to write on it and stand it up, you could get the Galveston Must-Have Holder at half price!
I used the Cinnabar Accent plates and the Portico Accent Plates for that added pop of red and white and then as a centerpiece the Cinnabar vase with white mums and flags. I just love the Amelia Thimble Domes and put one on top of the plates, with plans for a mini-cupcake to be served there! I think I will use a predominately blue frosting to bring a little more blue into this picture. A white Villa mug completed this place setting.
With any Willow House purchase of $39.96 or more you get something that price or less at 1/2 price, so remember that when you want to buy something!
