Memorial Day Table

Memorial Day is a day set aside to remember those who died while in the military service of our country. Pat wanted to set the tone of the table to match the meaning of the holiday - solemn and with respect and gratitude.
The table was set in a traditional red, white, and blue color theme.

Pat used tiny square condiments holders to raise the napkin slightly on the plate.

Here's the napkin - unfolded - it took a little "work" to get only the stars to show. A big thank you to Pat's husband who managed to do it.

  1. Beautiful table ladies and I am loving those napkins. I can't believe how hard it must have been to try and figure out how to showcase the right spot of that beautiful flag.

    Good job!

  2. Beautifully done. Wonderful job on the napkins. Wishing you a nice weekend and Memorial Day.

  3. Perfect table for Memorial Day. Love the napkin folds and how the stars are showing. Great flatware, love the red color. I would love to sit at this table.

  4. So pretty! That napkin fold just sets it off perfectly.
