A Fishy Table!

Welcome to the first day of summer!
It seems perfect that Cuisine Kathleen is having a party and we are all invited to share our tables
At The Beach!

I got home from Texas late Monday night and so this table was done from what was in my dish closet and stash! 
I've had these fish plates found at a yard sale for several years and finally decided this was their time to shine!
The placemats were found on clearance at K-Mart a couple of summers ago.   I thought they were perfect for the four colors of fish plates!
Orange!
Green!
Turquoise
and Red! 
I used a red glass plate as a charger, I even like the red on red!

I found a set of napkins also on K-Mart clearance and they had all the colors but green.  I found a close match to the green in a thrift shop.
The napkin rings (also K-mart clearance) are red and suppose to look like corral?  I like how they pick up the red edge in the place mats.
The centerpiece was simple!  
The matching fish platter and pitcher surrounded by shells!
The matching fish salt and pepper shakers
I used my thrift store red handled flatware
A simple clear wine glass since there is so much color on this table already!

Colorful, Casual and oh so Fun!
At The Beach!

I'm joining Let's Dish !

Later,

Linda

I LOVE that fish pitcher!!!!!! It's so cool! It reminds me of a piece of artwork I recently saw here locally. No...wait....it was a fountain here in Kansas City! We are known as the City of Fountains with just about as many fountains as Rome, Italy on our parkways, boulevards and in our parks. TONS of them, and I'm pretty sure I saw a fountain that resembles that pitcher! The fish plates are great! What a wonderful find in all those brilliant colors!!! They work perfectly with the placemats! Great napkin rings, too! They really do resemble coral! Very nicely done!
