Here is the inspiration for my most recent tablescape, which interestingly enough has
nothing to do with seashells! This complete set of vintage glasses was purchased
by my sweet husband for me recently as a present from a local store.
Their silver rims reminded me of the silver accents in the Mary Lake Thompson
napkins I have with seashells.
I know I over did it with using all the glasses in one setting, but look
at the little glasses (cordials or aperitif?) filled with seashells :)
This is also that set of flatware I found at Walgreens for $1.99 for 12.
This is a nice long shot of our remodeled dining room and our new table.
We waited 20 years to buy a dining room set (yes really) but I
am so happy with the one we finally purchased.
We got it Macy's Department store for 40% off plus a coupon during
Black Friday last November.
I love the back detail of the chairs, which matches the detail on the front of the buffet
posted about here: http://beeutifulbydesign.blogspot.com/2013/07/summer-buffet.html
A simple seashell filled jar was my centerpiece.
I used starfish plates and white plates to carry the coral and white theme along.
Mother of Pearl napkin rings matched the starfish plates and the silver in the glasses.
And my final touch was these crocodile salt and peppers Miss B bought for me
several years ago in Charleston, SC.
Speaking of Charleston, I will have a special announcement next week and a giveaway!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your enjoyed the table.
