Throw a President's Day dinner

by webdev

February 17, 2012

No matter who you are rooting for in the current presidential campaign, everyone can respect the achievements and life of Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. These two Aquariuses will be celebrated across the nation on President's Day, February 20. Taking time to reflect on the great achievements of both these men is a perfect reason for a President's Day dinner party.

Although Lincoln is responsible for abolishing slavery, Washington is responsible for making cherry pie an American classic. According to, the first president made the cherry tree popular with his famous quote when he was a boy - "I cannot tell a lie, I chopped down the cherry tree." Now, cherry pies are traditionally made for President's Day to celebrate all presidents past, present and future. Cherries are a perfect theme for a dinner in honor of these men.

Adorn your table with a festive tablecloth and patriotic freedom flowers in shades of red to tie in the red cherry theme. Whether you choose cheap holiday flowers like Teleflora's Rainbow Rays Potted Gerbera or a more lavish arrangement like Teleflora's It Had to Be You Bouquet, the red will be perfect for your cherry pie idea.
