According to Fox News:
The HGTV website featured a segment titled, “Classic Fourth of July Table Setting Ideas.” The photographs show bowls of fruit and a jar of lemonade sitting atop Old Glory. They called the flag an “unconventional table” linen.
“Drape a large American flag over the table as a bright and festive table runner,” HGTV suggested. “Use a nylon flag so spills can be easily wiped off and the flag can later be hung with pride on a flag pole.”
Nothing like hanging a flag outside your house that is covered in apple sauce and gravy stains. But hey, at least your table will be fucking clean.
