There's a lot going on this week -- our son's birthday, Mardi Gras, and Ash Wednesday, but we can't forget Texas Independence Day on March 2nd. What? You don't celebrate that holiday?! Well, I must confess that we didn't either until a few years ago. As transplanted Texans, we didn't learn Texas history in school, so we were woefully ignorant of the fact that March 2nd marks both Texas' declaration of independence from Mexico (178 years ago) and Sam Houston's birthday.
But now we know, and so it was time to set a table honoring Texas. This year I paired my Texas salad plates with some blue and white bordered plates in my collection.
In the Middle of Nowhere". Aren't tablescaping friends the best?
For a centerpiece, I needed more red, so I bought some red gerbera daisies (again at HEB) and cut the stems short so I could use them in my pansy ring.
Adventures in Thrifting, surprised me with this week.
Between Naps on the Porch, so stop by to see other tablescapes. I wonder if anyone else is celebrating Texas Independence Day!
