Memorial Day will always be associated with Florida’s intercoastal for us. As kids, we piled into the car and headed to Mimi’s house on the shore, excited for what we knew would be a special day. There, we were always greeted with a big spread of delicious food and a whole lot of family. Our grandparents, aunts and uncles, and great-grandparents welcomed us with big hugs and smiles. And, of course, it’s hard not to think of all the blue hues on Memorial Day: the big blue sky, telling us it’s almost summer; the sparkling blue of the intercoastal, inviting us into the warm, clear water. We happily took it all in as we set out in the boat headed to Merritt Island, wishing time would slow down so this day would last forever.
It’s these memories of carefree family time and stunning blue hues that inspired the design behind our brand-new Memorial Day Tablescape.
We were beyond thrilled to partner with Work Your Closet, who photographed each of our designs so beautifully, and Patina & Petals who meticulously designed the floral accents to highlight each of our tablescapes perfectly.

Cultivating Meaningful Moments
Your turn. Close your eyes and think back to your childhood Memorial Day celebrations. What comes to mind first? Maybe swimsuits, someone grilling up hamburgers and hot dogs, or perhaps the anticipation of the lazy days of summer upon you. Whatever special memories you have, those meaningful moments probably weren’t wrapped up in anything fancy or over-the-top. Just like our days heading out to Merritt Island, we know that keeping things simple and remembering why we gather with loved ones is the best way to create meaningful moments that’ll last a lifetime.
This Memorial Day, let go of the desire for perfection and the overwhelming worry when hosting loved ones. Instead, think of your own favorite childhood memories and remember how simple it all felt. We know that life can feel complicated and stressful, but we want to undo that narrative and create a new one that’s centered around simplicity and connection. So, forget all that you might’ve been told about what it means to host a holiday and welcome a meaningful and intentional gathering this Memorial Day.
For this tablescape, we wanted to incorporate those perfectly simple days of the intercoastal with an elevated aesthetic to match our sophisticated styles as adults. And…we’re so thrilled how this one turned out, friend! We curated a collection of festive, seasonal items alongside beautiful neutrals that can be used throughout the year. With this complete collection, you have one less thing to worry about this holiday! Here’s a tablescape that’s easy to recreate so that you have more time to spend with those who matter the most.
