Fourth of July - A Patriotic Tablescape

The most patriotic day in the USA, Independence Day is almost here and we are ready to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Many of us are decorating our homes, inside and outside, hanging our flags, planning our menus, and setting our tables with the red, white and blue.

My centerpiece represents the sparkle of the bombs bursting in air sung in our national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner".

Holding true to American traditions, my table is set for this day of celebration. Bells will be ringing, firecrackers will be popping, candles will be burning.

Patriotic menus include hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, and apple pie. We will include barbecue and cold slaw in our menu.

Join me in celebrating the Fourth of July by enjoying time with your family and friends for a day of patriotism - Judy.
