Ahoy, mates! Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch! Today I am taking a short break from spring decorating to set an ocean inspired table. Friday is Mr. Panache's birthday and we are having a seafood feast! So in keeping with my menu I've gone a little coastal with this week's table.
Of course we couldn't have an ocean inspired table without lovely shades of blue. I am using four varying shades of Mr. Panache's favorite color. I have used two placemats layered one on top of the other. They are aqua and royal blue. The napkin is a medium blue-teal and the decorative glass candle plates are translucent turquoise.
I filled a hurricane with glass beads of clear, teal and aqua to help tie in the color scheme.
Invited some little sea creatures over to decorate my table. A cluster of Starfish and shells picked up on Clearwater Beach during the years I lived there were the perfect accents to my Ocean Breeze table.
A lovely bronze Starfish securely holds my napkins in place.
I found these blue and white clam shell coasters at Target. They add a touch of whimsy.
A silver plated shell-shaped serving dish holds more aqua glass beads and a Starfish.
I just got these two large metal lanterns from my Celebrating Home interior accents line. I love them. They are so sturdy and versatile.
I love the way Vanilla Creme candles glow and flicker. The little candle plates were a find at Everything's A Dollar store.
I picked up three styles. I like this one. It looks like a flower or if you use your imagination, a Starfish.
You may remember my Shell salad plates from my Florida Sunset post a few weeks ago. This picture also gives you a better look at the layered placemats.
This candle plate is shaped like a daisy. My Eternity silverware add shine and sparkle in the candlelight. I hope you've enjoyed the Ocean Breeze. My seafood feast will feature Grilled Salmon with lemon-dill sauce, Peel 'n Eat Shrimp, crabcakes, stuffed mushrooms with crabmeat in hollandaise sauce, roasted garlic potatoes and a leafy green salad. Mr. Panache has requested a Strawberry Cheesecake for dessert! I'll post pictures on Saturday of our feast. We will pick back up with our Spring and Easter feature posts on Friday. Until then,
