Welcome to the 108th Tablescape Thursday!
It’s still beautiful summer weather here in Georgia. So, I’ve loaded up the car and I thought you and I would take one last beach trip before the cool fall weather arrives. Are ya with me?
A while back for a Tablescape Thursday, I posted two wonderful table settings created by my talented friend, Bonnie. You can view those HERE. I fell in love with the salad plates she used in one of those tablescapes. A search on eBay turned up two sets of four plates (8 total) and they were calling my name. I’ve paired them with another set of beachy china and stemware I found at Kohl’s over 3 years ago. Hope you enjoy this last beach escape before fall officially arrives.
Summer breeze makes me feel fine…
The breezes were non-stop this gorgeous summer day…you may not be able to feel them through that computer screen, but at least you can see them.
Starfish will keep our napkins from blowing away…
A few close ups…the appetizer seabiscuit plate…
Salad plate atop a dinner plate with a shell border…
Lots of shells collected from many years of beach trips to Hilton Head, Sanibel and Captiva Island…
Flatware has a shell-shaped design on the handle…
Getting darker…time for a little candlelight…
