Uncle Sam was the inspiration for another simple tablescape. When K was a little girl, she was fascinated by the process. Many times when it was time for bed, her dad would be carving. When she would wake in the morning, the project would be finished. WB would always tell her that he carved down to the the paint. It still makes me smile to think of it. Do you see the firecracker that Uncle Sam is holding?
This is such a simple setting. Red, white and blue with some stars seems to be all that is needed. When I went to layer some plates, I realized that my bright red plates are an entirely different color than my bright red tablecloth.
I love this mum with its fireworks-like flowers. The fork and spoon on top are waiting for a strawberry/blueberry shortcake dessert.
You can see another Uncle Sam at this angle.
I am late with this post because of computer problems but I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day!
Thank you to Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday. It is always so much fun!
