Welcome to the 290th Tablescape Thursday!
It’s been in the 70′s here for several days, I think it even got up into the 80′s for a bit. Love, love, love the warm weather! All these warm days have me dreaming of the beach so it’s time for a little beach table setting out on the porch.
This beach table setting celebrates the soft, cool shades of aqua, one of my favorite colors.
The bubble glasses make me think of the ocean.
I found the seashell dishes and bubble glasses 6+ years ago in Kohl’s. You can see some of the other pieces in this collection in this past tablescape: Shell Dishware in Beach Themed Table Setting
The sailboat salad plates are Warren Kimble, Coastal Breeze by Sakura. I didn’t use a sailboat napkin fold this time with these plates, though I was tempted. If you would love one for a summer table, you’ll find two different sailboat napkin folds here: Napkin Folding Tutorials
Sailboat nautical flatware is from Overstockdotcom, purchased a year or two ago.
I kept the centerpiece really simple for a fresh, clean look. The lantern is a new find this year from Marshall’s clearance isle, a pretty good bargain at $20. It makes me think of wonderful old lighthouses. Does it look a bit like a lighthouse to you, too?
I added white sand and a few shells inside.
A bird’s eye view…
Have the warm temps arrived where you live? Or, do you live in a part of the world where summer is waning and fall is on its way?
You’ll find many more beach themed table settings at BNOTP here: Beach Themed Tablescapes
