Hello sweet friends!
I'm cooking away right now, as I'm having all of Alejandro's siblings and their partners to celebrate their birthdays. You see, we take turns in different houses to celebrate one or more birthdays, depending on when they fall; so we have three siblings to celebrate and we'll be hostessing this time...isn't it fun! Therefore, my Memorial tablescape is rather simple, but I used a set of summer Multiple Choice fish plates, to give the scape a little twist; which are so pretty and I have used them before for crab patties, or even just for a summer crab salad, etc.
I will be specially joining Let's Dish at http://cuisinekathleen for her Memorial Day challenge party, Wednesday night. Hope to see you all there to celebrate this very special 'patriotic weekend.'
I just added this MEMORIAL DAY image. My heart goes out to the people in Oklahoma.
May our Lord give strength to the people in Oklahoma who are undergoing struggles with the tornade. Prayers are going their way.
|Each plate has four types of fishes and the name is written on top of each one. The fish theme is because this long weekend some men might want to go fishing, right?|
|I have the blue glasses since we got married in 1975. We bought 24 for a party and now I have eight left, ha!|
|The napkin rings are red, white and blue enamel.|
|Cute red, white and blue small fish butter dishes.|
|The vignette in the antique English buffet is also blue. I'm glad I re-decorated it last week.|
|The fish named in each plate are: Redeye Bass, Spotted Bass, King Carp, and Perch...it's so funny, but I just learned this, lol..|
Wishing you a wonderful long Memorial Day weekend and I hope you all have lovely, sunny weather, no matter where you are! "God Bless America today and always!"
Thank you sweet friends for all the comments you leave me, as you always make my day!
Thank you lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at your great parties each week.
