“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery”
Independence Day is summer’s biggest holiday! For our family, it is a time to spend together and eat (as if we need an excuse for that)! Our menu hasn’t changed in years…we keep it pretty simple and All-American! Butch is the grill master, and no one grills a better burger than he does! And I am betting that hotdogs, bratwurst, and Conecuh sausage will be making an appearance on our table as well! We all look forward to dessert…home-made vanilla ice cream and hopefully (hint, hint) an Allison made-from-scratch apple pie! The evening will be rounded out with a drive to our historic downtown for our city’s big fireworks show. Now, can you get more American than that?!
I used two different place settings! The cobalt chargers were the foundation for all four settings. Two settings had white dinner plates with red salad plates and two had red dinner plates with white salad plates! Love mixing it up!
Lantern/red dinner plates/Kate Spade napkins – TJ Maxx
Bud vases/flags – Hobby Lobby
Cobalt chargers – Horchow (several years ago)
White dinner plates/salad plates – Horchow.com American Atelier “Baroque” pattern
Cobalt glassware – Tuesday Morning (few years ago)
Star napkin rings – a gift
A sweet follower was inspired by our post Land That I Love and re-purposed an old shutter. She took the time to pray for our country while she painted! I just love it!
