Beach & Nautical Themed Table Settings

Welcome to the 247th Tablescape Thursday!

I created a table setting for this week but unfortunately, didn’t get a chance to photograph it.  Since we’ve been touring so many beautiful waterside homes lately,  for today’s Tablescape Thursday I’m sharing a few previous nautical-themed table settings.

Also, at the end of this post, you’ll find a link that will take you to a page with picture links to all the beach and nautical themed settings I’ve created over the last few years, as well as tutorials for beach-themed napkin folds and shell crafts you can create.

Ready for a Beach trip?  Let’s go!

  1. Thanks for hosting, Susan. I guess my tablescape fits in perfect with the theme of your party today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I’m with you Susan, I love anything beachy! All your tables are stunning, I need to go and study each one! Keep dreaming about a beach house, I love seeing the tours and houses~

  3. All so pretty. Love the navy blue and white.

  4. Gorgeous! There is no way that I can pick a favorite. You can come to my house and set a table anytime.

    Such pretty table settings ! I love those aqua glasses. And the margarita glasses are such a pretty color, too. Very summery and breezy feeling. πŸ™‚ Thanks for all the good ideas and instructions, too. Btw, Susan, I FINALLY visited a HomeGoods store yesterday! First time ever, lol. I only went because I’ve heard you mention them several times on here. I had actually never heard of HomeGoods before. Anyway, I did a search and found one in a semi-nearby town. But I had no idea they were associated with TJ Maxx. At least, this one was. It was inside the TJ Maxx store itself. Is that the same HomeGoods you mention? I can’t imagine there’d be another store with the same name.

    Here’s wishing you a beachy, breezy, weekend! πŸ˜€

    • Yep, they are all under the same company. Marshalls is part of that company, too. You’ll sometimes see the same merchandise in Marshalls that you see in TJ Max or HomeGoods. Hope you had fun…love that store!

  6. LOVE the shell chargers you made. I know it was time consuming, but soooooo worth it!!! Can’t wait to see them in more tablescapes!

  7. Susan, each one of these tables is “sea worthy”. πŸ˜‰ You are making me long for a trip to the beach or at least to set a beach themed table. Thanks for the continuous inspiration you provide week after week. Each of these table provide welcomed summer fun! ~ Sarah

  8. Oh Susan, the touring must be wonderful. I am a fan of anything beachy! I’ll dream right along with you on the beach house.

  9. Susan, your site brings so much inspiration! Thanks for having your linky parties. I’m proud to be part of it.

  10. By viewing your settings I learned something about myself. If you asked me I would say I am a pastel girl, but I am in love with the navy and white. I love the crispness and clean look.

  11. Hi Susan,
    I am wishing and also dreaming like other ladies and wishing TJ, Marshall or HG open a store in Stockholm so I could be the first to love them.

    Hope to retire ealier b4 65 yrs old and finish the dream of my life having a beach house on the hill over-looking my own beach area, (keep on dreaming) LoL*

    Happy TS & w/end ahead.

  12. With such romantic and beautiful arrangements every dinner would be a piece of heaven.
    The centerpieces in each picture are clearly fabulous. AMAZING!!!!

  13. Each setting is beautiful, Susan. I remembered some of them, but I had missed at least one of them. You always do it beautifully. laurie

  14. Love your seaside collection of tables Susan! Thanks for hosting!

  15. These are such pretty summertime tablescapes. I’ll be checking into these further when I am at my computer. Thanks for sharing these again. I have not seen some of these before.


  16. Mary from Virginia says

    Beautiful as always! You should open a tableware shop in Nags Head, NC.

  17. Susan,
    I think you could easily be hired from Pottery Barn or a place in Nantucket or Hilton Head and do their tablescapes! I look at one and think, “Oh how neat” and than the next one I think, “Oh I like that”….and than the next and think, ” Oh My” !…Really terrific ideas you share with us. They all are so wonderful and would enjoy sitting at your table on the porch for a special evening with you. Your a very talented lady!!!

  18. Is anyone else having trouble getting the links to load?

    • Gary, I’ve been having trouble with InLinkz all day. I’ll put the code back in again. Have no idea why it’s acting up today. Thanks for letting me know.

    • Okay, it’s fixed, now. InLinkz changed to a different system this week and I just switched back to the old dashboard and grabbed the script from there. Somehow the script created with the new system InLinkz changed to, keeps getting corrupted, so it won’t load. Hopefully switching back to the old dashboard will work. I’ll let the nice folks at InLinkz know that we’re having a problem. Last time I had looked, all was okay so really glad you let me know! Thanks again!

  19. Love the nautical theme! Beautiful designs!

  20. Love your tablescapes! I have been
    Wanting those fish water pitchers for
    A long time . Are they the ones that
    Sing when you pour? Ann

  21. Greetings, looks like lots of inspiration to check out this week. Thanks for hosting. Kathy

  22. They are all lovely, but I have to say my favorite is the one with the simple blue and white checked napkins. Maybe it is because I have similar napkins in red and can visualize it on my table.

  23. I love the beach and your table settings made me feel like I was almost there! Beautiful! I’m going to create a pin board just for table scapes now! Thank you for the beautiful inspiration! Hugs, Leena
