Surf’s Up! Beach Vacation in a Volkswagen Bug!

Welcome to the 452nd Tablescape Thursday! A couple of weeks ago I made a trip into Atlanta to do a bit of shopping. While there I stopped into the Lenox Square Pottery Barn where I saw these cute, shell napkin rings. I didn't buy them that day, but the more I thought about them, the more I knew I wanted to add them to my collection of napkin rings since I love setting beachy-nautical style tables on the … [Read more...]

Your Fruity Coconut Drink Awaits

Welcome to the 408th Tablescape Thursday!

Celebrate Independence Day With a Nautical-Themed Table Setting, Plus An Amazing Find

Sail Away With a Nautical Table Setting

Welcome to the 353rd Tablescape Thursday! I braved the heat this week to create a table out on the porch. Actually, a passing storm today cooled things down a good bit so it wasn't that terribly hot, after all.   I always feel a little sad when I see June 21st pass by on the calendar. That date is our summer solstice which means our longest day of sunshine has come and gone. The daylight … [Read more...]

Nautical Tablescape with Shell Chargers and Fish Flatware

Welcome to the 348th Tablescape Thursday! It's sunny and gorgeous out today, how about a beach trip?   This week's tablescape was inspired by flatware I purchased this past January. Do I hear "Jaws" music? Ummm...     Small lanterns at each place setting echo the larger candlelit lantern in the centerpiece. I wish I had thought to add a little white sand in the … [Read more...]

Nautical Table Setting With David Carter Brown Driftwood Dishware

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 … [Read more...]

Celebrate Spring With A Beach Themed Table Setting For Two

Welcome to the 297th Tablescape Thursday!

It's … [Read more...]
