Happy Memorial Day

IMG_9142Up until today, it has been a gorgeous Memorial Day Weekend. Lots of sunshine, golf (for my husband), pool time (for the boys) and beach time for me. We’re winding things down and happy to be celebrating the freedom that we are so fortunate to have because of our brave military. Let the stars and stripes fly high!IMG_9148 IMG_9150 IMG_9154 IMG_9156 IMG_9163So, from our home to yours….Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I hope you’ve had a wonderful “unofficial” beginning to summer. Let the sun and fun begin!


Saluting the Red, White and Blue

Parades, memorials, flags flying, stars and stripes, the red, white and blue. All of these things come to mind on this Memorial Day. I love embracing a holiday and especially one that has so much meaning. 

When I stumbled upon this Emma Bridgewater star pattern, I had to snap it up. From Memorial Day to the 4th of July, first day of school (it’s our school color) to “you’re a star” breakfasts…I know I’ll have fun creating memorable tablescapes.

Here’s a peek at how I’m using it this weekend. Placemats are La Gallina Matta from Protocol. Napkins are Tag. Flatware is Sabre. Rattan charger from Pier 1. True high low mix.

Sending gratitude to our veterans and armed services and a sunny day for celebrating to all!

Let’s hear it for the red, white and blue!

Long Weekend

Today begins the “unofficial” beginning of summer. Memorial Day Weekend. It seems hard to believe that it’s time to open the pool and head to the beach. I’m still wearing sweaters. But, I am ready to embrace the lazier days and tennis whites (even if I’m not really playing) and set out the red, white and blue. Here’s how we like to dress up things at our house.

Wishing you a relaxing, enjoyable, memorable weekend!
