Welcome to the 153rd Tablescape Thursday!
I must be craving a beach trip because it seems whenever I plan a tablescape lately, it always ends up being a beach themed table. I started off this tablescape with white flatware…
I was in the mood for soft muted colors.
Beach themed tablescapes always feel so restful with the soft blues of the ocean and sky and the creams and tans, reminiscent of the sand and beach.
This tablescape was created with things I already had around the house.
The only two items that are sort of new, are the Seaside Treasures box found a few months ago at Marshall’s for $3 and the tall glasses which were $1 each from Dollar Tree. (Update: Glasses may be from Old Time Pottery…had then awhile so not sure now.)
So, I spent $9 and I have a spanking new tablescape for summer dining. Gotta love that! You really don’t have to spend a lot to give your tables a new twist. I actually bought the cute box for the upstairs family room. That room has a bit of a beach vibe going on and I knew it would come in handy for stashing away shells from past beach vacations.
It’s so much fun to find little treasures around the house and use them in a table setting. It’s cost effective, decorative and brings back wonderful memories for you and your family.
I’ve used these shell napkin rings in previous table settings HERE and HERE. They were made by taking plain, wood napkin rings from Kohl’s and hot gluing shells on top. It’s an easy way to dress up napkin rings. Salad plates are in two shapes: Starfish and…
A shell shape…
The glasses are covered in little Adirondack chairs and are from Dollar Tree. The shorter glasses are from Kohl’s, 3-4 years ago.
