Sunday Favorites!!!

Sunday Favorites 

I am linking up with Chari at Happy to Design for Sunday favorites! I first posted this in July of

last year. I love how this little tablescape turned out so I thought I would share it again.

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

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!!!

Very pretty! I wish I had more access to sea shells. The starfish add such a nice touch.
Have a beautiful day!

Love it! It looks like such an inviting place to enjoy a meal and conversation!

Carolyn said...

Hi Cathy!

I can see why you would post it again! So pretty! I love all the seashells, sand dollars, etc! I also see in the reflection of the window, an inviting pool! Looks like a lovely spot for a wonderful time! ...also love the banner in the background of "Those who hope..." along with the cascading trumpet vine(?)...very pretty!

Always Nesting said...

I'm so glad you reposted! Love the table with the seashell, beachy theme. I stopped by Pottery Barn yesterday and the store was full of beachy displays. Your table could have been in the store and been perfect among their other displays.

Your table is stunning! I loved how it all tied in together! Pretty colors and how I love clair de lune. ahhhh so soothing. Luv luv luv your page.

I've never seen a coastal theme such as yours. How wonderful. It's great if you are eating fish! Just beautiful. I'm a new follower!

Oliva said...

Gorgeous colors! Love the beach theme...makes me want to fly to San Diego right now!!!!

Privet and Holly said...

Cathy! Gorgeous place setting and gorgeous setting, period {I see a pool reflected in the windows}! I wonder what you ended up serving in that sweet table ware that day??? It is lovely when things that you have collected over time all come together like old friends and perfectly represent YOU. xx P&H

Revamped French Maison said...

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog! I thought it would be a faux paus (at least I think that's how you say it) too! Most of our guests didn't realize the flowers weren't live until I told them. The most important thing when making silk bouquets is to use quality flowers!

Thank you for stopping by:)

FLOWERSHOPGURL said...

Hi Cathy, I just love your table for two with the seashells and starfish. I love your tea towels, pink is so pretty, especially with the white and green. I have always loved a beachy theme. Dreaming of living beach side someday... Thank you for leaving your kind comment on my Beachy Memory Jar. I really appreciate you taking the time to say hi. I look forward to visiting you again sometime soon!
Hugz,
Kim

Debbie said...

Cathy that was so pretty and unique. I just love when I see coastal decor and to see a table scape done so nicely was a real treat. This was a really nice post, and I am happy I had the opportunity to see, seeing I missed it the first time. Have a great night! Debbie

Gosh, I love that tablecloth! I love that it's pink without being so sweet...just fresh and pretty!

A Refocused Life said...

Cathy,
I love seeing the tablescapes and am so glad that someone has enough time to plan/set a pretty table. If I had time and energy to cook, maybe I'd be willing to create a fabulous table setting to go with it...someday.

Liz said...

Hi Cathy,

What a beautiful tablescape. I could sit there and enjoy sipping some cold sweet tea. I love the different sea shells and the candle adds an elegant touch. Love it! I am definitely inspired! XO ~Liz

Cathy, I am so glad you re-posted this bright and sunny table. I love the beachy starfish and and sand dollars! And the bamboo flatware is perfect with the theme.
The pretty green and pink floral tablecloth is so cute and fun on your little table for 2. I really love the idea of using the pink tea towels as napkins. They look so sassy!
Perfect for an outdoor luncheon or supper.

Hi Cathy, I just wanted to tell you I listed a little rooster arrangement in my Etsy Store. I think you might have asked about one a while back. I just wanted to tell you in case you were interested. I hope you are enjoying your day!! The weather is perfect here...I'm headed to go help my mom plant flowers. She hires me every spring! lol...Talk to you soon, Kristen
