Memorial Day is three weeks away. . .a day to wave the flag, salute the stars and stripes and celebrate the Red, White and Blue!
In celebration, I’m sharing some Stars & Stripe Ball Jar love with a little giveaway!
The Stars and Stripes Keepsake Ball Jars are new for 2018. In addition to the classic Ball logo, they feature a Stars and Stripes embossment, adding a patriotic touch to your canning, storage, beverage, and décor creations, ideal for family picnics for the Fourth of July and Memorial Day!
Ball Jars have been made in USA since 1884, another thing to celebrate!
To celebrate the Red, White and Blue, I put together a little patriotic vignette on a window shelf in the Potting Shed. Bachelor Buttons and Oxeye Daisies are growing free for-the-picking in the field beside it, so I added some to the jars. I cut the first of the Knock Out Roses and the last of the Bridal Wreath Spirea, along with some Penstemon for some red, white and blue bouquets. They’re joining some red, white and Liberty blue transferware.
Liberty Blue dinnerware was created by Enoch Wedgwood Company, in the historic Staffordshire district of England. It was designed on behalf of Benjamin Franklin Federal Savings and Loan, as a promotional item in commemoration of the company’s 50th anniversary in 1975, and in celebration of the American Bicentennial in 1976.
Fifteen different historic scenes from the American colonial period were used on the Liberty Blue dinnerware. The dinner plates feature Independence Hall, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where both the United States Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted.
You can see them at a Patriotic Table with Red, White and Liberty Blue, HERE.
