Memorial Day Tablescape

Memorial Day was originally called decoration day.  A day where we honor those that have lost their lives in our nation's service.  In my mind I envision ladies decorating their men folk's graves with flowers and flags.  For most, I believe it marks the beginning of summertime.  If there is one thing I like to do it is surely a reason to pull out all of my red, white & blue everything. Memorial Day is a great reason to celebrate by doing just that!  We always do our best to throw some sort of a cookout for the occasion.  The cookout usually consists of burgers and steaks with all the expected trimmings.  Here is a peak of what my table scape typically looks like.

I try to have something festive on the kitchen island as well. This is usually where we serve the food from.

How do you celebrate Memorial Day?
