Southern Memorial Tablescape

Submitted by Christi

It’s Tablescape Thursday with Susan from Between Naps on the Porch. Click on the pic to see more great tablescapes this week.


Once again we are visiting my friend Linda at The Cottage. Linda brought her white fiestaware and pictures of people in her family who have served in the military. She has pictures of family serving in every war since WWI. That is amazing. We set this table as a tribute for Memorial Day. We used her pictures on the table in decorative frames.

We added the apples for a little more color.

The pictures of family who have served in the past are a wonderful tribute.

Lots of red, white and blue and Old Glory on the table, too.

    Christi, the cottage looks so wonderful all decked out for Memorial Day. I know your celebration was wonderful. The military photos give the decorations so much meaning. Would you believe I have that same strawberry pie recipe. I haven’t made it in years. It is about time I did. Big smile.

    Our day in Rocky Mountain National Park was amazing. I am showing some photos tomorrow on my post. Thank you for your visit and comments. I appreciate it so much.
