Hello my friends,
we recently returned home from vacationing in CA. This morning I was reminiscing about our 'day at the beach' and decided to create a tablescape with it in mind.
When we arrived we saw that many of our fine feathered friends were enjoying a stroll along the beach just as much as we were.
I draped a tan grain sack striped runner down the center of the table. My take on the warm welcoming sand.
We could hardly wait to dip our toes in the ocean and cover them with sand!
Some even got buried in sand.
I used my red wooden chargers, a cream with a red striped plate, and a shell shaped salad plate. I topped the trio off with a real seashell and a knotted striped napkin with a bit of rope added. Tied in a square knot, of course.
I wish I could say that the shells were found at the beach, but no; they were found at a thrift shop. :) Originally from a beach,
I bought this polka dotted silverware last year on clearance at Ross. I had forgotten about it and hadn't used it yet. I thought it added a fun touch.
We lounged and played with bubbles,
Dished up buckets of sand, and
drug treasures from the sea.
I sprinkled sea glass along the runner and added a few nautical themed items to the table.
I bought the crab festival bucket at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. I just thought it was too cute!
I didn't end up doing this, because I only had one nautical themed beach towel. But I thought it would be a fun idea if you had enough to drape all of your chairs.
What a fabulous day we had! So much so, that we spent the entire day at the beach.
When Utah first met California, they ran like little sissy's. :)
But it didn't take long before they embraced the coolness
of the ocean!
At the end of the day hubby and I topped it off with Huntington Beaches famous fish tacos from Wahoo.
Oh, isn't life a beach?
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
