Southern Red, White and Blue

Submitted by Christi

This upcoming weekend our local Red, White and Blue Festival is taking place. This is always such a fun time. Lots of activities for kids and adults alike. The festival starts with a parade and then over 2 nights there is a lot of great music, food and then it ends with a spectacular (and I mean really spectacular) fireworks show!

So, this week, I am in the mood for some Red, White and Blue!

A 4th of July table for 2.

You may remember this plant hanging from the shepherds hook in a previous post. Today, I've dressed it up for the holiday.

Remember this from Monday? I added a silver charger and a red candle.

Even the table doves got in on the act:

Even the birds got in on the act with their Uncle Sam hats.

A silver charger, white plate, red napkin and Spode Blue Fitzgerald plate on top make up the layers.

Today’s Lagniappe:  Brie and Fig Tartlets
I found this great recipe using Fillo cups from Athens Foods.

1 4-ounce package sliced prosciutto
1 13.2-ounce wheel of brie cheese, rind removed, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
30 Athens Mini Fillo Shells (2 boxes)
1 10-ounce jar of fig preserves

In a large pan over medium heat, or on a baking sheet in a preheated 375ºF oven, crisp prosciutto. Place on paper towels to cool. Once the prosciutto is cooled, cut it into small pieces.

Place one cube of brie into each Mini Fillo Shell. Spoon a teaspoon of fig preserves over the brie. Bake shells in preheated 375ºF oven for 8-10 minutes until brie is melted.

Remove shells from oven and garnish each shell with small pieces of crisp prosciutto.

    Something strange happened when I hit submit. I hope I am not repeating myself here. Red, white and blue is always such a great color scheme. I really like those fluted bowls. The hats on the birds brought a smile to my face.

    What an elegant take on the red, white, and blue! You can’t go wrong adding silver to a table as far as I’m concerned — the “little black dress” of tablescaping!

    Hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
