Blue and White Coastal Tablescape
Today I set the table for dinner on the porch with basic elements for a blue and white coastal tablescape. I picked up this throw sometime ago at Home Goods. The throw looks great in my family room draped over a high backed chair. I love the variety of blues on it. Today I thought, hey! That would make a great tablecloth!
White everyday dishes were just right and I wasn’t even sure I was going to add chargers, but when I grabbed a few coastal accents from around the house, I knew it was time to get out my seashell chargers. You can see my step by step tutorial for How to Make Seashell Chargers.
A centerpiece doesn’t have to be something extravagant. I simply picked up a few accent pieces from around my house, a candle holder of seashells, a faux buoy, a nautical monkey’s fist knot and a couple of extra bottles of little seashells were all that were needed to give the table a coastal vibe.
Napkin rings are actually dollar store plastic napkin rings I had glued starfish to for a previous table.
Everyday woven napkins topped white salad plates with a nautical rope pattern around the rim.
Pioneer Woman gray handled flatware was an easy choice for flatware since it blends so well with my tablecloth throw. Ice tea glasses from Home Goods are plain glasses with wicker wraps. These are great for summertime, so you can keep a grip on the cold glasses, I am so glad I spotted that throw in the family room today and decided to set a blue and white coastal tablescape. Dinner will be served on the front porch!
