Welcome to the 308th Tablescape Thursday!
I’m taking you out on the porch this week for a nautical, beachy-themed table setting.
This table setting was inspired by some adorable salad plates I spotted recently on eBay while searching for something else. Does that ever happen to you…you visit eBay looking for one thing and find something else you love?
I wasn’t sure where this table was headed when I first started putting it together. At one point I was thinking of using a red lantern as the centerpiece along with red flatware, pulling the red from the salad plates. In the end, blue won out. Try to ignore the cushions in the chairs…I should have removed those before I took pics.
The salad plates are by Casamoda and were designed by David Carter Brown. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a David Carter Brown pattern that I didn’t just love.
This particular pattern is called Driftwood. I love the lap siding background on each of the plates. I had to take a picture of each plate to share, they are soooo cute!
Just in case you were wondering, the Lighthouse Ferry is only two miles away. Just follow the arrow and you’ll be there in no time!
Lobsters, Fresh Off The Boat! Ice Cold!
Let’s rent a boat for the day! We’ll sail out to that island we see off in the distance and spend the whole day gathering beautiful shells. Are you in?
When we get back from our day of shelling, we’ll have fresh clams, crabs and oysters for dinner. On second thought, you can have the oysters, I’ll stick with the clams and crabs. 😉
Remember this fishing net I bought in Marshalls?
It’s been used as a table cloth in this tablescape…. (View tablescape here: Dining With The Seagulls)
As a backdrop for this table setting… (View tablescape here: Please, No Talking To The Lifeguard)
As a part of the centerpiece in this tablescape… (View tablescape here: Patriotic Setting With A Nautical Bent)
And finally as a table runner in today’s table setting. Who knew a fishing net could be so versatile!
Happy Summer! Enjoy every precious moment!
