Tablescape Thursday is upon us however, I’m feeling a bit under the weather (hopefully allergies, but I’m beginning to wonder) and hadn’t done my tablescape.

Dinner on the Deck
 
This must be one of the latest tablescapes I’ve ever posted. My children had a big party yesterday and it morphed into an adult party at days end. Although I had previously set my table and taken my photos, after 12 and half hours of entertaining, I didn’t have it in me to put my post together. Thanks for the concerned inquiries I received in my absence.

Such a glorious day for a sail. IMG_5406 Let’s pull into this little beach for a bite to eat. IMG_5251
All that sailing certainly helps you build up an appetite.

Summer is the perfect time for a nautical theme. I love the contrast of the smooth plates with the rough ropes and chargers.

Elegant Waterside 075 Today’s table was inspired by these marvelous vintage seashell plates which I placed upon Grandmom Lillian’s Limoges Elegant Waterside 077.

Place card holders were a gift the other year from my good friend Meg.

Elegant Waterside 063
The inspiration congealed after a recent trip to the Pottery Barn Outlet.

…and this beautiful salt…

… and this darling condiment holder were purchased.

Both layers of napkins and the napkin rings were Christmas Tree purchases.

Summer seems to be a time when we dine more casually, but sometimes…
Elegant Waterside 027
…you’ve just got to kick it up a notch!
Elegant Waterside 059
Pick up that glass and make a toast!

Life is too short…

Do come back on Sunday and share what the season means to YOU at Seasonal Sundays. It doesn’t have to be a table. It could be some photos from a recent visit or adventure, the latest blossoms in your garden, your seasonal indoor décor, a recipe or whatever the season means to YOU!
