Remembering Our Fallen Soldiers
While we decorate the house & prepare to honor the men & women of our country, who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, we cannot help but mourn the loss of lives in the Oklahoma & Texas tornadoes, too.
My heart aches for them & the pain & suffering they are enduring.
Words escape me & so I'll just be quiet & share
what we've done so far in preparation & anticipation of Memorial Day.
Oneida's white Wicker dishes, La Rochere French bee glassware, Horchow French bee flatware.
The desserts, seen below, are from last year's celebration. I never posted those holiday photos, as DH had surgery the next day on his eye.
I'll make similar dessert a little closer to Monday's Memorial Day gathering.
Printable recipe for blueberry pie HERE:
Big, juicy fresh strawberries, dipped in white chocolate then into blue sugar makes a very easy & patriotic dessert.
Thank you for our veterans who gave their lives defending and upholding the freedom of the United States of America.
Thank you for their willingness to risk everything & may they find the honor, recognition, and peace they deserve.
Thank you for stopping by The Gazebo House.
I am joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish as well as
Susan for Between Naps on the Porch Tablescape Thursday & Michael Lee at Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday & The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays &
Yvonne at StoneGable for On The Menu Monday.
