Starting Young


July 4th has come and gone, but how can I resist sharing the delightful tablescape efforts of the granddaughters! Thanks to them, a casual at home dinner after a busy day became something special.
What they had to work with were the red, white and blue decorations that earlier in the day had adorned their bikes. That’s what I call clever recycling.

First, the chairs at the bar were festooned with sparkling stars.

For the table a centerpiece was made with the stars, flags and flowers taken from bicycle handlebars. Of course, I loved that they used a bottle for the flags and flowers. Wonder where they’d seen bottles used on a table before!?!?

Now take a look at this. Can you see that it is a 4 twisted from the stars? That gets big marks for effort!

And, what have we here, special place cards handmade no less.

    To the heirloom gowns, all made by the entrants themselves. machine sewn and mostly machine embroidered. Thanks for dropping in!

    many blessings, marlis

  2. You are the best Grammie (oops…Lulu) ever. These are the memories that your granddaughters will cherish forever. And…hmm….someday they will write about in their memoires…..if they have their Lulu’s literary leaning.

  3. I know you wanted to be in Maine, but we’re glad we got to share the 4th with you. The girls love having an appreciative audience for their creative endeavors. And surely you must feel proud that they weren’t content with my boring, everyday table setting! 🙂 I love these girls! And love you!
