We serve our 4th of July meal at about 2:00 in the afternoon, so by fireworks time, we
need want a little snack.
I fill a basket with plates, grapes, and a few flowers (okay, honestly, the flowers go in the basket only if I’m posting pictures to my blog). (Red and white melamine plates: Le Cadeaux)
I cover a tray of cheese and crackers with one of my willow cloches,
and grab a bottle of wine.
Yes, I know these are martini stems, but can you see those pretty stars and swirls on them? It is much more important to use a stem that fits the occasion than one that fits the beverage you are having, right?
I purchased the napkins and matching square tablecloth at an estate sale several years ago.
Patriotic napkins, tied at the corners, cover pillows from the sofa.
Bring on the fireworks show. We’re ready!
Wishing everyone a great weekend, and wishing my American friends a safe and happy 4th of July. laurie
