I am saving the table I did for tonight for another time. Instead, I did a little table to dedicate to the people of Boston.
After 9/11, my state of NY, received so much support from other parts of our country, and we will never forget that.
My prayers for those who have been killed or injured, and for all those who live in Boston. You will never forget that terrible day, when your celebration was ruined by this cowardly attack.
Three red roses, one for each young person killed in the attack.
I started with a tablecloth I found in HG clearance for 3.00.
Plain white charger from Noritake, blue plate from CTS, 1.00, and red square plate from Pfaltzgraf, 1.00
White handled soup from Hutschenreuther, via Peter Andrews, a store we have here on LI.
Navy blue flatware with a pattern similar to the cloth, via HG.
Blue stems via Le $ Tree, water glasses from Dansk.
Patriotic napkins are a new purchase from Boscovs.com. They were on sale for less than 1.00 each, free shipping, then % age back from Mr. Rebates.
The knotted napkin rings are from CTS, they were .25 ea.
I was going to save them for Memorial Day, but since Patriot Day was the day Boston was attacked, I felt it fitting to use them.
I layered a blue starred napkin from Kohls , a white lacey plate from CTS , and then a blue sundae dish from Pfaltzgraff filled with the flowers and a flag.
That’s my little tribute to Boston. I have not been many places in the US, but I have been in that area many times as my son went to college near there.
I remember how we felt after 9/11, or should I say still feel, and I know how shaken they are.
God bless Boston, the people trying to find the killer, and all of America!
My food portion tonight is something they would have in Boston. FISH!
Fish, filet of flounder, floured and crisp fried.
I am not fond of fish…but with some crisp romaine and shredded cheddar…I’ll eat it!
Fish, lettuce, cheese, your choice of dressing and a soft flour taco.
Stick a fork in it, you’re ready! Try and get your mouth around that!
