I’ve been planning a tablescape for my family’s Fourth of July brunch. Fourth of July is an important holiday for our family. It is a strong tradition that my dear grandfather, whom I called Bobby, instilled in us. He would always plan a barbeque with lots of fireworks. He was very patriotic and loved the Fourth of July. He has been gone for two years now, and I miss him very much, but always feel a part of him is with me especially on the Fourth.
This year we will start out with a neighborhood parade. All of the kids decorate their bikes in patriotic attire and parade through the neighborhood. My two youngest will be participating this year, and it is so much fun!!! Later in the evening, we will have a barbeque and shoot off lots of fireworks.
Tablescapes are one of my most favorite things to do. I have a bad addiction for dishes, and have since I was a little girl. As a child, one of my favorite gifts to receive was a set of play dishes. Unfortunately, that love of dishes did not leave as I got older. I have dishes stored everywhere!!!
I hope that I have given you some ideas for your Fourth of July Celebration. Next week, I’ll be sharing two great breakfast or brunch recipes that can be prepared the day before.
