Inspiration for this tablescape started with these two adorable figurines I bought about some time ago at an outlet store.
As you can see the price was certainly right! Can't beat $3.99 each! I even received an extra 15% off for senior day!
Cute sailor suits!
Love her hat and shoes!
I bought the aqua plates at Old Time Pottery Barn for 99 cents each! The white plates are from Dollar Tree and the placemats from Dollar Tree. The flatware was from Ross, quite a while ago.
See that water glass on the left? I also bought those at Dollar Tree recently, just for this tablescape, but alas, they look more blue than aqua! (They sure looked aqua in the store!!)
Still didn't work, so I went to Plan B: Aqua napkin in crystal goblets -
The centerpiece didn't happen until just last week. I was at TJ Maxx and lo and behold, look what I found!
Great price too, $6.99 I can justify buying, probably wouldn't have bought if it had been ten dollars! It was perfect!
Are you noticing the two different surfaces with this tablescape? First I did it with a white tablecloth.
After taking all the pictures with the white cloth, I redid it just on the wood table and it looks so much better in our house with the new wood floors we have! (For those who saw my "Big Reveal" (click to see) and are waiting for more pictures showing the floors, they will be posted in a day or so. I'm having problems getting good shots of the floors, the photos just don't do justice to how pretty they really are.)
Which is your favorite?
Thanks for visiting my Summertime Sailing tablescape!
I'm trying to think of cute names for them! Any suggestions?
(Added Note: Cuisine Kathleen named them for me - Sandy and Skipper! Perfect names, huh! Thanks, Kathleen!)
