Patriotic Tablescape

A table set for two, paying a little tribute to hubby for his service in the army. Notice his army picture from 1969 in the little frame on the left. Click to enlarge.

The silverware came from T.J. Maxx. Table runner from Old Time Pottery. Love that store.

I have a few little books on the flag or the pledge and put this one into the mix.

Thanks honey for serving.

I picked these plates up at Ross. Cute little surf boards.



I've had these salt and pepper shakers for a long time from Ross.



Chocolate truffles are in this little dish from the Dollar Tree.


Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for more tablescapes.

You did a great job on your patriotic table. I love the table runner. How cute and summery.

BTW, thank you for inquiring about my mom. I'm sorry to say that she seems to be declining. It has been suggested to me that this may be the time to get Hospice involved. I have a meeting with them later today.

Hugs,
Kim

You can go to the AutoZone to have a exam or even do-it-by yourself.

It can also choose whether your vehicle will pass an emissions examination.
