It's been a busy week here at A La Carte so I'm going to re-post last year's Memorial Day offering! 

I hope you enjoy! 


Today was so pretty and busy but thought I would stop for a cup of tea and what better way to celebrate Memorial Day then with red, white & blue!
A simple tray with a $1 place mat
I like the flowers on these cups 
These were made in China and I found them at the thrift store last week.  They are in very good condition.
The little red teapot was found at Home Goods
The pretty white napkins are also thrifted

I am joining

Hope you enjoyed your tea! 

Let's Remember those who made sacrifices so we may have our freedom!
Dedicated to the memory of my Dad
Lt.Col. C. P. Buschmann
I love you Dad!
