Under the Sea Two!

For Let's Dish at Cuisine Kathleen, I am recycling an old, Beachy tablescape to celebrate the beginning of Summer! Be sure and visit Kathleen for lots more Beachy Tables!

Here is a table using the dinner plates from my new Big Lots Gibson Dishes - I call it Under the Sea.

As you can see, I am using my Tiffany Blue Tulle again. It is amazing how many tables I have used it for: Sweet 16 Breakfast at Tiffany's, Tea Time at Monet's Garden, Winter Wonderland and now Under the Sea!

The dinner plates and the napkin rings are Gibson Claremont. The salad plates are made of capiz and were from Target a few years ago. The seersucker napkins and mercury glass votive holders are also from Target.

The flatware is another Target purchase. I had seen it in the store but admit that I didn't appreciate it until I saw it used in a tablescape in my latest Southern Lady magazine. I love how the faceted handles sparkle! The stemware is Fostoria Heritage and the salad bowls are by Cambridge Glass Company "Near Cut."

Here are some pictures of the centerpiece:

I took a footed compote (Target World Bazaar several years ago) and put a blue vase (Michaels) on it. I filled the blue vase with clear acrylic shards/jewels and put silver and pearl stems in it. All of this is from my Winter Wonderland table, but I thought in this setting it seemed watery and bubbly. I surrounded everything with seashells and a few blue glass beads and some silver ornaments.

I added my Target fish salt and pepper shakers

and a pewter shell butter dish (found in my house when we moved in) and some shell butter spreaders ( Target and Big Lots).
