Americana Tablescape for Dinner Tonight

It seems like eons ago since I tablescaped. DH and I just came from a 2 week trip in the Canary Islands, Gibraltar and Rome and I am just getting over my jetlag.

Anyway, since Memorial Day is coming soon, I was in the mood to create an Americana tablescape. These dinner set finally made it here after the last trailer of our belongings from Natchez were delivered. My sister, Fe gave them to me many years ago and after using them once, I stored them in the attic and had forgotten about them until I saw them again with the last delivery.

 It's nice and cool outside so I thought we would eat on the back deck. I cooked Cajun shrimp, baked asparagus, rice and made some fruit salad.

The plates look so patriotic that I did not want to cover them with salad plates or bowls.  I set the bowls for the fruit salad on the buffet instead.

I bought the stars and stripes glasses on clearance from the Christmas Tree Shops on line and bought them. I just realized now how they perfectly matched the plates.

 I did not serve hot tea but this Polish pottery set would have been my choice again if I did.

Thanks to all for stopping by and thanks to the hostesses too for the fun parties I am linking with.
