Memorial Day kicks off the summer
boating season on the lake!
Although we generally refrain from boating on major holidays to avoid the crowds, we have been known to weigh anchor early in the morning or enjoy a late evening cruise.
In anticipation of the holiday, I’m setting sail into summer with appetizer boats and wooden buoys from Pottery Barn for a nautical and patriotic table!
A “ready-refill” at Lowe’s was proudly hailing its patriotism with a combination of white petunias, red verbena, and blue lobelia.
Drop your refill in your pot, and anchor some flags for quick decorating & smooth sailing into the holiday weekend!
I found an Americana Plaid Seersucker Tablecloth from Kohl’s to top a red quilt for the table. Baskets serving as chargers were brought ashore from HomeGoods several years ago.
Flatware, resembling rope, adds a nautical
touch along with mini glass buoys.
Red, white & blue striped napkins from World Market are casually knotted on the port side of the basket.
We filled our boats with a recipe from Southern Living’s collection of Quick & Delicious Summer Salads for an easy summer meal after watching a regatta on the lake last summer.
