Welcome to the 146th Tablescape Thursday!
For today’s Tablescape Thursday, I’ve put together a little beach themed table setting out on the porch. I still have beach dreams running through my head after my recent trip to Savannah. Hope you enjoy!
I started out placing different types/colors of starfish on the napkins and I scattered lots of shells all around the centerpiece.
I decided it looked a bit too busy and changed all the starfish out to just white ones for the place settings. I also removed a lot of the shells. Do you see the difference between the pic above and the one below?
The gray netting was a tablecloth I used in a Halloween tablescape HERE. For the Halloween tablescape, it was spread out as a creepy, tattered tablecloth. Here it is bunched up to appear more like an old fishing net.
I used a napkin fold called “Double Sails” for this beach-themed table setting. It seemed like the perfect fold for a tablescape with sailboats on the salad plates. You’ll find the instructions for this napkin fold here: Double Sails Napkin Fold.
The centerpiece for this tablescape was inspired by the lighthouse shown on the Warren Kimble “Coastal Breeze” salad plates. I’ve used these salad plates in a previous table setting here, Beach Themed Table Setting with Warren Kimble Coastal Breeze.
The shape of this lantern made me think of a beautiful lighthouse along a New England coast.
I love the soft muted colors in this table setting. Very restful and definitely beachy.
A little candlelight…
