By the Sea, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea!

It's been so hot lately, I need a cool tablescape. And what is more refreshing and cooling than the sea?

I used a white tablecloth and my trusty tiffany blue tulle and added some goodies purchased from 2 recent trips to watery destinations and came up with this table.

I used my silver beaded placemats with blue ruffled placemats from TJ Maxx. Then I added a white Gibson Claremont dinner plate topped with a blue and white seersucker napkin (Target), a blue capiz shell salad plate (Target) and shell butter knife (Big Lots). I added clear plastic flatware and Fostoria Heritage glassware and put a shell place card holder at each place.

Around the table I added an oyster plate

And some fish salt and peppers frolicking among the tulle waves

A silver shell dish with spreaders

And a shell pitcher

To make the whole table an under the sea sensation!

And for the centerpiece I used a large clam shell from Target years ago, filled with blue and clear glass vase filler beads, like sea glass with various shells and sea creatures scattered throughout. Two turquoise mercury glass candle holders and light blue candles round out the centerpiece.

And on the mantle, I draped more tulle and a turquoise vase with bubbly, pearl and silver stems, flanked by silver mercury glass candle holders.

And even the wicker tea cart got a sea side tea towel!

Stay cool and have a wonderful Tea Time Tuesday and Tablescape Thursday!
