A Summer Tablescape

August 4, 2014 by 16 Comments

I was surprised this past week when a package from my sister arrived. She is in the process of moving and thought of me while sorting out her pretties. Lots of fun little treasures to unwrap,  it was almost like Christmas morning. A couple of the goodies inspired me to create this tablescape.  Can you spot which ones?

I set up a tray in the center of the table showing off my “new to me” dishes, dessert plates and mugs embellished with a sea shell motive.

White and blue….what’s not to love?

Pretty starfish, sand dollars and a bowl filled with sea shells also became part of this summer tablescape.

Last year around this time we were planning our trip to Florida, aahh the memories.  I really enjoyed my time at the beach,  this tablescape takes me back and awakens the sights and sounds of the beach. So far we haven’t planned our vacation for this year…I hope to get away for a little fun in the sun late September or October.

Thank you for stopping by…..you made my day!!
