Red, White and Southern Coastal

Oh Summer! Such a wonderful time of the year, from the magnolias in may to the celebration of our great freedom to the quiet nights spent with family close at your side. Summer is a time to relax, shed your winter coat and explore! I love summer, although this will be my first summer of being out of school I know that it will still be a wonderful time.

I am blessed that I can enjoy this freedom and I am full of deep gratitude for those who have served or are currently serving in the Armed Forces!! It is because of your service we can enjoy this holiday in peace and freedom.

KJ and I decided to spend this Memorial Day at home, with our little family. I am excited to grill and enjoy dinner at our dining room table. I feel a true since of American Pride when I look at the latest tablescape. I like to describe the Memorial Day decor and American with a pinch of Southern and Coastal!

This is the time of year that I am trilled that I registered for the navy and red striped salad plates to match my china! Sadly, they have been replaced, but by equally as cute navy and green ones.

I found this book at a consignment store the day of the Mother's Day brunch that I spent with my mom! As soon as I saw it I new it was perfect for this table.

I had to break out the Ball Mason Jars for this, since they are made in America!

This glass jar was also found on my shopping day with my mom.

I made the napkins out of some gingham fabric that I found, at Walmart of all places.

This lantern was the inspiration for the coastal aspect of the table. My mom found it for less than $10! How awesome was that?

The magnolia bouquet was my toss bouquet from our wedding and it never got tossed so I got to keep it. I am glad I did, it is such a sweet memory of our special day. {PS- its almost been 2 years!!}

I kept the breakfast with a light and more coastal feel.

Great thing about getting married in July? You get to register for patriotic napkins from Pottery Barn!

If y'all haven't figured it out yet, I love straws! 

I love the look of the white shells on the white plates.

Whew! I am sorry for the photo overload in this post, but I tired to narrow it down as much as possible! I hope that y'all have a wonderful Memorial Day!!

I have much more to come, including my Memorial Day blooms, a blueberry festival and homemade blueberry jam!!
