Sea Themed Tablescape

We had a dinner party the other night and it was revolved around seafood.
I dressed the table in a pretty turquoise tablecloth.

I used my plates from Kohls.  I added some netting to make it look more beachy.

I also bought this cute seahorse candle holders at Kohls.

I created two water towers for the table.
 I hot glued some burlap around the bottom of the vases and added a starfish.  Inside, there is colored marbles, a tropical scene and shells.  My husband added a few drops of blue.  I finished them off with white floating candles.  They made an awesome  display of lighting.

Pier 1 is where I found this  beautiful pieces.  Salad bowl and pitcher.


I need to work on my photography skills.  My husband says we need to buy another lens....LOL
Happy Monday.
I will share the recipe I made soon.  Cajun Seafood Pasta.  The dessert was Chocolate Yummy.

You may have noticed I changed my blog theme again.  Gotta love Fall!
I may be tweaking things here and there in the next couple of weeks.
I also have a new blog design to show you.  Mama Jax's blog, a very talented artist who lives in New Orleans.  Ron from Uptown Acorn referred her to me.  Thanks so much Ron.
Stay tuned for Mama Jax's blog reveal....

  2. Well..you have lucky guests..Nothing is harder to photo than an indoor table w/ lights..away from natural light.
    Really!
    I would not only need a new lens.
    I would need a professional camera crew..and their equipment and knowledge:)
    You were able to show us the whole feeling and look..so I would not even think of a new lens:)

    I have 3 of those tall vases/I bought them over 15 yrs ago..for exactly the purpose you are using them for..Do you think I can find any round floating candles anymore ? Not 1 round.. candle can be found.
    I see pink roses yellow flowers..no nice white round candles.
    I like putting fall things in the vases.. vines..etc..
    They are all on hold:)
    Love the look!

    1. I've seen the round floating candles at Target, Walmart and Hobby Lobby. Sometimes they are in the wedding dept. Good luck!

  8. Wow I love the theme and colors you used. The shiny tablecloth material looks like water- the water towers you created are cute and the fishnet really pulls the sea theme together. Those plates are perfect for this and the stemware is beautiful. I bet it was a fun gathering- especially with this themed table!

  27. Linda the table is fabulous. I have fallen in love with this color the past two years and could just live in it too! Your tablecloth is luscious and the netting on the top is the perfect touch. What fun pieces from Pier 1. Those salad servers are incredible. I bet everyone wanted to know where they came from. I would rather be living this way all year than moving toward ....(you know, snow!! Shhh...)

  28. Linda I just died for this tablescape, it's so fresh and breezy, the color scheme reminds me of the blue ocean water from the beaches I used to frequent as a child so inspiring..... Great job.

  30. Hi Linda!

    Wow! What a fabulous dining table! The colors and details are awesome. I love how you used the fish net to give that earthy or shall I say "seaworthy" look to the table. Everything came together perfectly Linda, but then your tables are ALWAYS masterpieces!!

    Blessings, Edie Marie

  35. Your table is just stunning. What a beautiful job you did. I know your guest loved every bit of it.
    Your photos are lovely...I've been told to never use the flash...and I do my photo editing in PhotoScape...they have just about anything you need to lighten photos that might be too dark, to sharpen the photo, just so many things and it's fun....course, PicMonkey is wonderful, too.
    So, you may not need new lens after all...:)
    Thanks for coming by my place.
