A Beach in the Desert

I can only remember going to the beach once in my life. I have visited White Sands, New Mexico which has sand but no water.
I didn't think a table with this theme would appeal to me but it came together pretty quickly and I didn't even have accessories until last Saturday.  It started with the napkin rings which are Pfaltzgraff.  I found them at the Goodwill. There was a matching cake stand and the only reason it didn't come home with me is because it had a huge crack at the base. The clam votive holders, the majority of the shells and the blue scatters in the apothecary jar are from Dollar Tree.  I had seen them there but didn't think it was enough for a tablescape.  The marbles in the jar and the place mats were a gift from my friend Ruby for my birthday. They were in a basket along with other tablescaping goodies.

  1. Beachy tables are my very favorite...yours is super with the seamist, cobalt and ivory. Great accessories!

  2. Thank you Daphne. I was thinking of you when I created this table.


I would love to hear what you think of my dishes. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you come back to visit again soon.
