I think by now everyone knows how much I love anything to do with the beach. I'm definately a water baby who is landlocked in Illinois. I have always felt most at peace when I'm surrounded by waves, water and seashells. I tried to create that feeling with my tablescape.
I started with a soft blue tablecloth (Macy's) to give the feeling of the water. The china is called Captiva and I bought it at Bed, Bath and Beyond in Florida several years ago. I paired it with Rogers Bros. Enchanted Rose flatware (Ebay).
I used creamy napkins with lucite shell napkin rings. The napkin rings belonged to my mom, as did the seashell salt dips. You will notice that some of the pictures have wine and water glasses, some have just wine glasses. I took the first pictures and realized if I had a pitcher on the table, I needed to add water glasses. The pink wine glasses were one of my husband's garage sale finds. The teal etched water glasses were a going away present when we moved 7 years ago.
For the centerpiece, I used an aqua charger as the base. The seashell vase was a recent HomeGoods purchase and is filled with tiny pink roses and white blooms from my yard. The candle we bought in Michigan a few years ago...in a moment you will see why it is so special.
Our fun Fitz & Floyd pitcher and bowl were gifts many years ago when we housed a Miss Florida queen in our home for a week. They usually live on the top of my kitchen cabinets.
See what happens when I light the candle?
I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. This is my favorite blogging event and I would love it if you would visit her this week to see all the beautiful table settings.
