It was a fun weekend, hectic but relaxing at the same time. My daughter and her family had a volleyball party at their house on Saturday and then we had a picnic and swimming party at our house the next day.
With some Polish pottery accessories as part of the centerpiece, I set up our table on the back porch.
In memory of our brave soldiers who gave up their lives defending us and our freedom, I used my Staffordshire historic colonial plate set.
The red, white and blue bike napkin rings are perfect for an outdoor setting. I got them from Sur La Table a few years ago on clearance for under $2 each.
It was Tina's turn to cook but I made caprese salad on skewers. I got my idea from Chloe of http://celebrateanddecorate.com/. Thanks Chloe!
Typical picnic food, good ole grilled hamburgers, hotdogs and Polish sausage. They were yummy! I love eating outside, with the dog cleaning up whatever falls on the floor.
The kids had fun swimming.
Thanks you so much for the visit and thanks to our hostesses of the parties I link to. I truly appreciate you all.
