The table is set for two with lots of love and memories....
Over view of the table - filled with our Dad's "treasures"
The place setting consists of a red charger from Crate & Barrel and the highly recognizable plate and mug "procured" by an unnamed Master Chief for his dishaholic sister 30 years ago....
Yes, we could have "borrowed" actual Navy flatware but thought better of it since we are already using "hot" dishware
This flatware is "Vault" by Gourmet Settings
Simple clear glass tumbler
The hat is very old and in pretty rough shape..........
Dad's camera is even older and in worse shape, but what memories it captured over the years....
We borrowed one of our brother's figurines
We did spare you pictures of the South Pacific......and scantily clothed Hula girls, goofy looking sailors, etc.
One last look at the table
