Welcome to the 297th Tablescape Thursday!
It’s been a while since I created a setting for two and a really long time since I put together a tablescape on this little oval table here on the porch.
You may remember the lantern from a previous beach themed table setting here: Beachy Tablescape With Lighthouse Lantern
Glassware for this table setting is from Pier 1. It’s been used in several previous table settings over the last few years. When I used them in this previous beach themed tablescape, I drilled a tiny hole in an aqua blue & rust-colored shell and tied it to the stem with jute yarn. When I placed them back in the cupboard in my laundry room, I left the shell attached. So glad I did now since the colors in the shells go great with the colors in this tablescape.
The aqua glasses worked well with the blue dinner plates found for just $5.99 each a few months ago in HomeGoods.
Woven chargers are from Kohls, six years ago. Shell napkin rings were made by hot-gluing shells onto white, wood napkin rings found in Kohls many years ago. Flatware has a tiny shell shape designed into the handle.
The lobster salad plates are from World Market, you may remember seeing them in previous table settings. Notice the coral design etched into the cream background of the salad plates.
I was so excited when I found these dinner plates with the orange coral design and rope edge. They look so pretty with the coral design of the salad plates. Unfortunately, I was only able to find three of the blue dinner plates. I almost returned them when I realized I couldn’t locate any others, but they are so cute, I kept them in case I eventually stumble across three more. The only info on the back of the plates is: Effetti d’Arte, Made in Italy.
A simple table setting for two on this gorgeous springtime day.
Hoping the warm weather has found you, wherever you live.
Looking forward to the beautiful tablescapes linked for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
