My Grandmother says that you should always set a table fit for a king. Even if we eat a casual lunch of “make your own” cold cut sandwiches, Grammy puts the mayonnaise in a serving dish. She thinks that it is tacky to have a mayonnaise jar on the table! Well, she passed that on to my mother and my mother passed that on to me.
Well, I gotta tell you with juggling a a new marriage, a young adult son, a full-time career, and the beach shop; I’m not as exacting as Grammy all the time. :) (I’ll admit that I’ve even wolfed down a sandwich over the kitchen sink!) But I do enjoy a beautiful tablescape.
Beach (Coastal) Tablescapes
Behind holidays, my favorite tablescapes are beach themed.
What’s not to love with this nautical tablescape? The sailboat centerpiece, the shells, sand dollars, and driftwood! And checkout the navy monkey fist!
This tablescape features tableware from Pier1 – one of my FAVORITE stores! I really like the shell napkin rings and the sand dollar detail on the bread plates.
This tablescape shows a simple setting with delicate coastal details added to the table runner. The coastal color palette is the focal point of this beach tablescape. Nicely done!
I just had to include this casual al fresco tablescape. The sailboat and the message in a bottle touches are just too cute!
What special touches do you add to your table?
