In just one week I will be celebrating the one year anniversary of my very first post!! I remember so well the terror I felt as I clicked the “publish” button and the joy I felt when I received several positive comments and followers!
I am republishing that post today–I hope you enjoy it.
Please be sure to visit next Thursday for my actual blogaversary and giveaway for my friends and followers!
Thank you all for making my first year so much FUN!
and now, back to post # 1
Independence Day was sizzling hot here in Connecticut. The back deck was the perfect spot to set our star–spangled table!
The napkin rings, votive holders and little candles provided the fireworks. Even the hydrangea from the yard fit into the patriotic color scheme!
Word soon got around that there was yummy homemade potato salad, corn on the cob, bbq chicken and caprese salad! And of course, refreshing, cold, iced tea with fresh mint!
Visitors arrived from far away, bringing the colors and music for us to enjoy! First, the Williamsburg militia arrived.
They were followed by Uncle Sam, a blue fish, and a little star who entertained Mr. Fun!
There were so many things to celebrate on this great day!!!
Of course, after a feast like this, there’s certainly no room for dessert! Or is there always room…?
As the sun set on this glorious, sweltering day, the candles and fireworks were lit.
The elusive blue hour added the perfect final touch!
I hope you enjoyed your visit or re-visit! Please be sure to visit many more of the wonderful tables at
