I know it is full blown Winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, but living in Florida, I couldn’t help it, I styled this elegant coastal tablescape to get me dreaming of some beach time. I hope you enjoy this bit of beachy inspiration.

I used this ruffled throw for a Winter Wonderland tablescape a few weeks ago, but when I looked at it again, I thought it also looked like the way the sand looks under the water where the waves are gentle. Of course sand isn’t white, but this throw from Ikea gives me the same feeling of the movement of the water.I found these dinner plates after we got these chairs from Ballard Design for our dining room. The color goes so perfectly. The napkins are also a complementary color to the print on my dining chairs.
A net, some driftwood, shells, and starfish were tucked into and around my large aluminum shell dish.
I used my Oneida Classic Shell flatware with silver chargers and turquoise dinner plates which came from Home Goods.
The sea life dessert plates came from Home Goods a few years ago. I have had this big shell dish for many years, I love using it to serve seafood on ice for parties, but it seemed the perfect centerpiece for this tablescape.
For stemware I used silver goblets I have had for several years and my Marquis by Waterford Brookside goblets.
I decided to make my own napkin rings for this tablescape. I used this set of four silver plastic napkin rings I bought for $1 at the Dollar Tree.
It was very easy to just use small starfish and hot glue one to each of the napkin rings. I am sure I will use these again in the future. They looked great on the napkins and on the table.
