Here it is the end of August already!
Summer has been so busy for me!
Cuisine Kathleen challenged us to do a Summer Fun table.
That can only mean one thing to me...
The beach means sand, sun, blue water and of course shells!
I put together my centerpiece using shells I've collected from all my beach trips! Using bubbled glass cylinders and candles added another element to the table.
I love the colors and texture of these Crate & Barrel plates. I found these at a thrift shop and have been waiting to use them in a tablescape.
I started with a dark blue place mat to anchor the place setting. A white charger plate, the dinner plate and salad plate topped with a blue shell glass dish.
Thrifted flatware in a sea green color pairs well with the dark blue napkin
and the fish napkin ring
I love these goblets with the blue/green stem
The swirls make me think of waves
Looking at the photos I'm thinking I should have used a white tablecloth on the table first. I do enjoy the wood of the table, but it makes it a bit dark.
The marble jar filler looks like bubbles to me!
I love the texture of shells....I wish I had time for a beach trip this summer, but this is as close as I'm going to get it seems.
These salt & pepper shakers were a gift!
Everything on this table was thrifted, gifted or found!
Thanks for joining me at these parties!
