When I posted my Coastal Table Décor last week there were a few items I wanted to use but didn’t. So I’m back with More Coastal Table Décor. I also used a few of the same items in an effort to show how your tabletop can feel different when using some of the same pieces.
Let’s start with the fishnet. In the previous design it was used as a table runner. Here it is loosely draped in and around the front and sides of this glass seashell box.
Also inside the box is one of the coral colored stones used as a centerpiece in the first table. I scooped up every raffia ball I could find and tucked them in side along with other shells and a single succulent.
These hurricane candle holders came from TJ Maxx, I think. Most of my candles are either white or ivory because they go with everything. These babies can also be a bit pricey so I use my Michaels coupons when I buy them. Keep in mind that when using real candles make sure they are unscented our use flameless ones. The scented varieties are best used in another area of the home so their scent won’t interfere with food being served at the table. Once upon a time I started working on a master list of my table top/décor resource so that I could share that info with you. Well, that list is lost somewhere in cyberspace so I can’t tell you where these cute nautical coasters came from. I do however remember that the rope vase came from Hobby Lobby.
It’s been ages since I’ve been to Pier 1 and when stop in there is no shortage of temptation. My glossy wooden chargers were irresistibly priced a couple of years ago and I couldn’t help but snag them. The aqua dinner plates are from my favorite thrift store. I learned from previous trips to buy all of the dinner plates when I see them. Six dinner plates for 3.12 is quite the bargain! My fishy dessert plates don’t get to come out and play too often so this was their chance to shine.
A white napkin is used as a neutral barrier between the two blue plates. The faux mother of pearl handled flatware also adds brightness. The multifaceted goblets are on their second run with my coastal tables and I used the smaller ones as well. Each place setting is also enhanced with a seashell. If dinner guests were seated here the seashells would be a favor they could take with them.
This may be the end of my beach themed tables this season, unless I find some irresistible pieces that won’t let me leave the store without them. You never know!!!
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
