Welcome to the 357th Tablescape Thursday!
Soooo, remember yesterday how I mentioned plans to create a table setting on the little bistro table that lives here on the deck. HA! Mother Nature had other plans.
A huge storm came and raged on for quite a while. It ended about half an hour before it became totally dark out. When the storm finally ended, I rushed downstairs and quickly put the table I had been thinking about together, then took pictures as fast I could with the little bit of light I had left. So please excuse the darkness of some of the photos and the completely fogged up wine glasses. lol
Remember that fishing net I purchased so long ago at Marshalls?
I used it as an overlay for the tablecloth and the little starfish that came attached to the netting was cute hanging along the front.
If I’d had a bit more time, I would have placed some pretty white sand around the candle inside the lantern and tucked in a few seashells, so pretend they are there. You have a good imagination, right? 🙂
I used my favorite fishy flatware and some shell napkin rings I made years ago by gluing pretty shells to plain, wood napkin rings found in Kohls.
If you like tables for two, you’ll find a bunch more under the category, Tablescapes/Occasion/Tables for Two at the top of the blog. I’ll also link to that category page at the end of this post.
Flatware is called FishStix, love that name! The shark face on the face of this flatware, along with the fins on the handle, totally crack me up. It’s perfect for a casual nautical/beach table setting. I found this flatware here: FishStix Flatware
You may remember when I purchased these wine glasses a month or two ago.
Did you know wine glasses will fog up when it’s very humid outside? As soon as I poured the room temperature wine into the glasses and brought them outside, they fogged up completely and stayed that way until I brought them back in. I’m pretty sure there’s a physics lesson to be learned in this post. 😉
So, you can’t see it very well, but there are little fishes on the decanter, as well.
You’ll find 20+ additional “Table Settings for Two” here: Tablescapes For Two.
Looking forward to the wonderful tables posted for this Tablescape Thursday!
If you are participating in Tablescape Thursday, please be sure to add your permalink below, and not your general blog address.
To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address showing in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party to link up and participate.
That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
