Since the 1900’s Memorial Day has been the day that we celebrate the american soldiers who have died in combat. “In addition to the national holiday, nine states officially set aside a day to honor those who died fighting for the Confederacy in the Civil War: Texas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Georgia.”*
In order to honor these fallen soldiers we have created a festive tablescape that all your friends and family will want to spend time around.
We started the tablescape off with a Jacquard Scrollwork Tablecloth in Royal Blue. The scroll work is in a darker gold pattern which matches memorial day perfectly. Anything too flashy or full of sequins resonates more with 4th of July, so the toned down gold is on point. On top of the Jacquard tablecloth we placed a silk red runner for a pop of color.
On top of the runner we created a simple bouquet with white tulips, red carnations, and white berries.
Around the bouquet we placed little gifts for the guests. Feel free to put fun items in the gift bags such as home baked cookies, candy or even a fun mug for them to take home.
We became creative with the drinking glasses by using mason jars and tying a red ribbon on them. Don’t forget the fun red and white striped straw!
Opt for a rustic feel with gold chargers to match the Jacquard tablecloth.
To create a special feel to each table setting we attached a different style brooch to each of the napkins.
