Table Top Tuesday

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, honors all of our veterans who gave their lives for our freedom!  The Avenue of Flags lining the driveways and waving in the wind make a statement as you drive into local cementaries to place flowers on graves of loved ones!  Hat's off to the dedicated local American Legionaires who tirelessly donate their time and place these flags out for every Memorial Day weekend!

American Legion Post 463

We salute our service women and men fighting for our freedom!!!

In celebration of Memorial Day, we have picnics and family gatherings.  We hope the following tabletop elements inspire you for your own Memorial Day celebration!
