Tablescape Thursday!!!

020

Yeah!!! It’s Thursday!!! Ya’ll know what that means!!! Tablescapes…tablescapes…

tablescapes!!!

This little table is for extra seating on my back patio. I set the table for two!!!

Everyone in blogland is using shells…so of course I copied!!! My daughter has quite the

collection…so this was easy!!! I also had the linen tea towels that I am using for the

placemats/tablecloth…so I was off and running!!! I know everyone recognizes the white

dishes…courtesy of our dear Gollum. I had the little green desert plates…they pick up the

green in the tea towels perfectly…don’t you agree? The bamboo flatware is another

blogland favorite…from Horchow and the glassware is from there as well. I am so excited

about this little tablescape!!! I love how it came together!!! You never know when you first

get started!!! I must say…this is quickly becoming one of my favorite meme’s!!!

Cathy!

This is just as cute as can be! I have that flatware, and isn't it fun??? I also have white dishes and shells (I hope so, I live in Florida LOL!), but I don't have those cute seahorses! Those are adorable. Are they knife rests? Whatever they are, I love them! :-)

And I loved this set with pinks! And those glasses... girl, those are the cutest!

Great job with your tablescape!

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

What a lovely outdoor tablescape! I loved it! Very seaside and shells are always so lovely on a table.

Melissa Marie said...

I love this! It is so bright, cheery and beachy! Love the shells and tablecloth! Beautiful! :)

printersdevil said...

We are seeing a lot of pink and green and I am loving it. This is so bright and cheerful. I love the beach, but sometimes tire of the colors all being so pastel. This is great. Wonderful combo.

Don't forget to join us on this weekend for the final Christmas in July Tablescape Party on Saturday (some may spill into Sunday since the 25th is Saturday. I am having a real CIJ family dinner on Sunday, but will post my table photos Friday night and Mr. Linky will be up and ready at Playing Dishes.

Cal said...

That's so lovely, the colours are picked out beautifully. And I love the use of the shells.

prof en retraite said...

Hi Cathy! I love your tablescape...so pretty and summery! The shells are the perfect touch! Have a great weekend...hugs...Debbie

Tammy518 said...

I love this! It's so unexpected, with the pink with the "beachy" theme...very cool! I've been using my little outdoor tables a lot this summer for tablescaping and they're just perfect for that.

A Hint of Home said...

Lovely table setting with soft, beautiful spring colors.

Christi said...

Love your beach themed table. Your shells are great on this table. I'm ready for the beach!

I love the pink floral tablecloths mixed with the seashells! Very unique, but very pretty. Happy TT to you!

Blue Creek Home said...

Love your tablescape. And it looks so pretty with the brick in the background.
I love Horchow!

Amy said...

Cathy,
Your tablescape is just breathtaking. A lot of bloggers have mixed the seashells around a blue-themed table. Your use of pink and green was incredibly creative and gave the seashell theme a totally new updated look. Love it! Amy :)

Candy said...

She sells sea shells by the sea shore...

Lovely creation, I can almost here the waves coming ashore.

Cheers, Candy

ivoryspring said...

Hello Cathy,

Thank you for visiting my tablescape and leaving the kind comment! I love your shell theme - very well done!

Dana and Daisy said...

Hi Cathy! your colors DO match so wonderfully! Bravo! I love the mixture of the printed tablecloth next to the bright whites of your shells. Very, very pretty!

TT is one of my favorite past times now, too!

The Fajdich Times said...

Very nice. Love your colors:)

Domestic Designer said...

It looks just wonderful. I love the color combo. The tea towels for a tablecloth is a great idea!

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! Cathy this is truly stunning! I love every single detail from the beautiful and vibrant tablecloth to the gorgeous shells. ~Magnificent~
You have outdone yourself. You are such a gifted and talented tablescaper.

Have a blessed evening my friend.

Mary said...

Hi Cathy - thanks so much for visiting and your sweet compliment! I love your pink tablescape, too! The pictures are great,and show so much detail - I had trouble getting close enough without also getting the "blurrs"! I'm definitely going to be visiting your blog often - great co-ordintion, and so very pretty!

Joyce said...

I am in Love with the little seahorses. Are they hooks for the wall? They are adorable. The entire TS is so inviting. You take the best photos. Thanks for sharing your fun table with me.

Terri said...

Cathy,
Thanks for visiting and posting on my blog. I absolutely LOVE your pretty tablescape with the shells as accents. And the seahorses are adorable. Did you know that the male seahorse carries the babies in his pouch? Could you imagine the male of the human species handling that responsibility? LOL Happy TT!

Kim said...

I love you tablescape!!! One of my favorites so far this week. I love the shells.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

I really like this! The pink and sage in the tea towels is perfect!

I also love the Thursdays Tablescapes and we all get caught up in each others excitement! So fun!

Katherine

Dining Delight said...

How pretty! You have coordinated the greens & pinks in the tablecloth with your dishes so well! The shells are a nice touch and show that your table doesn't have to be totally "beachy" to use them - they are a nice decorative accent on their own!

Cass @ That Old House said...

What a fresh and pretty table! Love the green and pink together. So sweet.

Ldy ~~ Dy said...

Your tablescape is lovely with all the pretty seashells! Pictures came out nice in the sunlight. Love the bamboo flatware.

Martha said...

A great table -- pretty in pink and with the shells -- lovely and so summery.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Cathy, what a darling table. I love your color scheme. The sand dollars brought back memories of when I was a child and picked them up off the shore. Thanks! Your table is so refreshing and welcoming.. I hope your Friday is all that you want it to be.. .hugs ~lynne~

My Shabby Rose Cottage said...

Dear Cathy,
I love this tablescape. It turned out just beautiful! And it didn't even have any MC on it!! Being that we live a few miles from South Padre Island, I too love seashells and the like.

I also want to thank you for your comment on my blog. I am glad to hear that you use the cookware. How does it clean up? I just want mine to always look as good as when I bought it..hehehe

Anyway...thanks for sharing your tablescape with us. I may be well enough to do another one next week.

Have a blessed weekend...warm hugs...Linda

Pinky said...

HI Cathy, had to come over to see YOUR shell table cause I did one this week too and would love to have you come see mine! I LOVE your outdoor table, ADORE that big candle holder and the colors you have chosen are beautiful! I am REAL late viewing and commenting, our houseguests just left this morning after being here a week! Hope to "see" you at next weeks TT also!!! Pinky:)

Bill said...

Hi, Cathy. Just stopping by agan to say thanks for the sweet comment. Hope you're having an enjoyable weekend!

Bye for now,

Brenda said...

Oh, that scene could be at the edge of the beach, awaiting two people in love! I don't live close to the ocean, but I've sure been scouting all over town (like at Ross: scored!) for seashells. I like the pink with the neutrals. So tranquil and appealing to the senses!
Brenda

Katy said...

Absolutely divine table. I have the same Gibson dishes myself and I used the dinner plate under my shell salad plate in my tablescape this week too. Love your dishes and all the little extras, it sure is appealing! ~Katy

Southern Belle said...
