Just Peachy! Umm, I mean beachy (or is it just fishy?)

** When I did my table I totally forgot about the 100th Week Celebration! I have been joining in since the 60th! I didn't do a Celebratory or outside table, BUT I used a Birthday gift (celebratory) and it is an outdoor theme- how about that? Happy 100th Tablescape Thursday, everyone!

For my birthday, my daughter (who has taken a liking to doing Tablescapes of her own) gave me a set of placemats, napkins, salt and pepper shakers and a cute little fish bowl (serving type, not abode type) so I have been busy trying to find a few more accents for them. I gave the dishes the night off, but I still like the look!

I put the fish salt and peppers in the "net" (actually it is a bag that the shells came in!)

Aren't the placemats cute? I didn't want to cover them up with the plates- maybe next week!

What trip to the beach is complete without a sand bucket?- got it at SA for .29 !

I couldn't resist the little clam shell bowl! SA for .49

I live in  sunny Florida about 6 miles from the most beautiful beach ever, but I got my shells at Goodwill!



Cute little fish bowl, huh?








Be sure and check out Between Naps on the Porch for our weekly, fun Tablescape Thursday! Thanks, Susan for hosting us every week!

Have a blessed week! Thanks for stopping by and drop a line to say hi!

What fabulous placemats, so fun and modern! I know how you feel, I have a place in Cabo and I import my shells from Wal Mart - much better selection and oh so cheap! Thanks for sharing the great table.

Those are cute placemats and I would use clear plates so they would still be able to be seen.

Hugs,

Nana,
lucky you to get this very pretty things as a gift of your daughter. The placemats are just fabulous and make such a nice modern table. Great design and I can imagine how difficult it will be to decide which plates you will use. There are so many combinations possible. The table looks just in that manner just pretty. Thank you for sharing this pretty things.
Greetings, Johanna

Thank you for sharing your tablescape with us. Lots of great photos, too! I totally love the placemats. They're so original and fun. Of course the whole table is very lovely. I especially got a kick out of the not-so-formal bucket flower vase. Very original.

What a sweet daughter you have! Love the darling placemats, and the striped napkins go perfectly with them. The little fish salt and pepper and the serving bowl echo the colors in the linens. Cute idea for the sandpail centerpiece!

Your fish s&p shakers are so cute. I love the placemats--I often have the same trouble covering up the pretty ones! Very nice! Linda

Your pops of red provide just the right balance for the neutral tones of your placemats/linens. Great eye. Thank you for sharing your charming tablescape. Cherry Kay
