My inspiration for the beach them came from these salad plates.
I bought them at Beall's several years ago. I think Beall's is a FL based store and they always have lots of tropical things. There's plates each with with a different beach cottage on them.
I loved the plates because they remind me of the little cottages we saw at Captiva Island and the Keys, when we were there! I can't begin to choose a favorite color or style! Can you?
I placed them on bright colored chargers with bold colored placemats, all in contrasting colors.
The centerpiece is a white doll sized Adirondack chair, filled with hibiscus flowers.
These little sandpiper birds also came from Dollar Tree:
I love watching the little sandpipers scurrying around so fast on the beach!
I used white napkins to match the white adirondack chair:
The napkin rings are made of shells. I think these have a fancy name, but I can't think of it right now! I found them at an estate sale a couple of years ago. I tucked a silk hibiscus bloom into the napkin rings:
The shell napkin rings show up better on the white.
The hibiscus blooms make them pop!I had a lot of fun putting this one together, and it was very inexpensive!
The lime green tumblers came from Home Goods a few years ago.
Do you have a favorite color combination? Favorite cottage?
The colors in this tablescape are very cheerful, we are enjoying seeing it daily!
I hope you enjoy it too!
