Post Memorial Day Tablescape. . .

I did something a bit more unique, even for me,
On Crooked Creektt for a Memorial Day Tablescape.

No flags, no poppies, 
just the true red, white and cobalt blue. . .for two.




The entire tablescape is built around gifted
 cobalt blue square dessert / salad plates.




After trying several dinner plate combinations,
I settled for the newest ecru dinner plates.

I embraced the difference in the styles,
yet felt there was a cohesiveness with the circular patterns.




Individual pepper and salt shakers on silver rectangular trays
continues the angular shapes through out the tablescape.




While the urn is circular in shape, 
its base is square like the dessert / salad plate.

Its diamond placement atop the rectangular serving tray 
mimics the shapes found in the place setting.





I adore how the shape of the clear bubble glass stemware resembles the urn!




Clean, streamlined Traditional styling for our Dining Room
On Crooked Creektt, kept our focus on the truest meaning for Memorial Day.

I like your red white and blue -- just elegant simplicity but it says patriotic without being cloyingly so. Good table!

Love the way your dishes all work together and the simplicity of the table. The poppies are great and bring back sweet memories of my grandmother selling them with the other VFW ladies.
