Red, White, and Blue

...an Independence Day lunch.

For lunch today, T ate the following...

  • star-shaped sandwich on white bread with blue edible glitter
  • white popcorn in red, white, and blue muffin tin liners
  • applesauce with red, white, and blue star sprinkles
  • white milk in a red cup
...all served on a red Solo plate on white and blue placemats.

Did you notice the star stickers on T's white napkin?  ;o)

Did you know...?

The official national colors of the United States are red, white, and blue.

The exact red, white, and blue colors to be used in the national flag of the United States of America are White, Old Glory Red, and Old Glory Blue...as specified with reference to the CAUS Standard Color Reference of America (10th edition).*

Although the colors did not have a specified meaning at the time the American flag was adopted, they did for the Great Seal of the United States in 1782.**

          Red is a symbol of valor and bravery.
          White symbolizes purity and innocence.
          Blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.




  1. Love the tin. So festive!
    I didn't notice the stars on the napkin until you mentioned them. Cool.
    Thanks for the red, white and blue trivia. I didn't know that.
    Would love for you to stop by and visit Tots and Me
    We also had a patriotic tin.

  2. Love it, and I learned something too! Thanks so much for linking up to the 4th of July Linky Party & Happy Independence Day!
