It’s that time again – Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting Tablescape Thursday. I’m joining in this week and hope to see you there!
I’m also joining up over at A Musing Potpourri for the End of Summer Celebration.
Although you can’t tell by the temperature where I live, Autumn will soon be here. I wanted to do at least one more summery table setting before it arrives. I haven’t used my seashell plates since last summer, so I decided to use them for this setting. It’s very similar to the one I did last year…just a few changes here and there.
I began with a white tablecloth over which I layered turquoise straw placemats. A silver charger held white dinner plates that are trimmed with platinum and seashell salad plates.
The salad plates featuring seashells and a starfish…
An oval bread and butter plate was topped with a butter pat also trimmed with silver. I found these cute butter spreaders that have a blue fish on them several years ago at a thrift store.
The goblets I added to the setting are one of my favorite sets. I love how the blue glass fades into green at the bottom.
I added creamy white beaded napkin rings to the plaid napkins.
At each place setting, I placed a glass votive cup that I filled with sand. Then I added a white candle and a seashell to each one.
The centerpiece was made using turquoise blue pillar candles with seashells embedded in them. I also scattered seashells around the candles.
It’s been a few weeks since I had played around with a table setting…and it’s been a busy few weeks! After my decision to begin decluttering my life and home, I’ve been going through closets and drawers and getting rid of stuff.
My dish pantry was such a jumbled up mess with tons of dishes and it was always a job just to find whatever I was looking for. After paring WAY down on the amount of dishes I had, I organized what I decided to keep…and now I can actually find things when I want to do a table setting! My dish pantry is now so organized, it’s really scary! LOL
My mother-in-law and I had a yard sale this past weekend and I managed to sell a good bit of the items I had. I was determined that what I didn’t sell was not coming back home with me…so I donated what was left to a local thrift store after the yard sale was over. I’m far from finished, but I’ve made a great start!
Thanks so much for visiting with me today. I hope you’ll come back again very soon!
