Labor Day was grey and drizzly, but I wanted to start the morning with a small nod to the red, white, and blue. We were only home for breakfast, so everything had to be quick and simple.
Sorry for the glare, but it was so dreary that I had to have the overhead lights on to even see. I thought I'd use these plastic, Ralph Lauren look-alike plates.
For this table, roses are too formal, gerberas are too whimsical, but carnations are just right if you mound them closely with no spaces in a pave style. I used an off-white container and a couple of flags for fast details that made it more holiday-like.
This old quilt top keeps popping up for a red/white/blue event. Some folks have berated me for using a quilt for a tablecloth, but it is not a precious piece and it easily washes by hand.
A red napkin with a blue willow napkin ring and some red handled flatware makes this come together so easily.
And these small blue goblets were just the ticket for juice.
Just the two of us, rearranging the day because of the rain.
