I have done several post with my hydrangea's this year.
They are the best they have ever been, huge plentiful blooms and gorgeous colors.
So for our Memorial Day party I was anxious to make several bouquets.
What could hold my huge Annabelle blooms?
I decided my silver ice bucket.
Looks patriot to me.
It was hot so I was anticipating some use of the dining room,
but we endured outside all day into the night.
I love my silver compote and wanted to make an arrangement.
Luckily I had a another silver container with a frog and it fits my compote!
My Pink Ever Bloom ready for the coffee table.

The Nikko Blue went in Mason jars on all the tables.
Everyone took bouquets home with them.
My MIL got the biggest bouquet
We had a great time!
The twins and cousin Fred drove 2 hrs to get here!
and the other sweet lady is our neighbor and Greta's babysitter.
And I have to brag a little...........
Mr. worked hard and made great brats and pulled pork
Mr's brothers and Fred hung out on the deck, next the BBQ.
Must be a "man thing"!
My favorite thing of all.........
What is better than a four generation picture!
My MIL, son, Grandaughter and Great Grandaughter.
I am so proud of my MIL, 88 in 3 months and going strong!
My beautiful nieces
We always do Memorial Day on Sunday.
That way everyone can get together and still have Monday
to relax before heading back to work.
Thank you to all the men and women
who served to ensure we have a day like today.
Your are not forgotten...
