Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the US to remember those who died serving in the armed forces. Americans often gather for celebrations, picnics or to plant flowers on the graves of loved ones.
It is somewhat the beginning of the summer in the northeast. Fashion says we can wear "white shoes", our winter clothes are packed away, and plans for the summer begin!
I set the table for a Memorial Day brunch for the two of us:
Fruit, muffins, eggs and bacon will be served....
...and the rest of the day will be spent planting flowers and cleaning out the landscaping.
The red enamel dishes and bowls and the star flatware are from Pottery Barn, Courtly Checked enamel dishes are MacKenzie-Childs, the stars and stripes dishes are from the Christmas Tree Shop and the placemats are from Ikea.
Enjoy the holiday!
