At The Beach
I am joining Cuisine Kathleen for her At The Beach themed tablescape party this week. Aqua and brown seemed to be the best I could come up with!
I chose a blue runner for the center of the table and worked from there. The woven chargers were found at Savers for $2.99 each. I am not sure I really like them, they are too deep to suit me.
The aqua dinner plate is Thompson Pottery, the pattern is Seashell; it is washed with brown over the embossed portions. I don't have much in the way of brown, but did pull out a brown and white salad plate made by Sterling. I think this may be restaurant ware as it is quite heavy.
A scallop shell will be used for the stuffed clam appetizer.
The aqua glassware is Noritake Sweet Swirl, which remind me of ocean waves.
The brown napkins are hemstitched linen gathered with a woven napkin ring. I tucked the champagne Madeline flatware in for something different.
The rim shot.
The centerpiece is a myriad of shore birds, starfish and a lighthouse.
