We enter this weekend remembering those who gave everything for us, families around the country will be gathering for parades, beach days, picnics and memorial services. And so I decorate by setting the table in the colors of our country.
Using red Fiestaware and Franciscan blue and white dishes…
…My mom’s Jim Shore Uncle Sam and Polish pottery pitcher.
Some may think setting the table with china for a summer holiday is a bit much, but the tradition comes from my mom always setting the table, no matter what the occasion, as long as the family was gathering around the table.
My family and I took some time to recall what soldiers had done for us in the past to keep our country free. Their sacrifices take my breath away.
