Tablescape Thursday: A Taste of the Gulf Coast

I have created my first ever Tablescape! I just love to see everyone’s Tablescape creations when Between Naps on the Porch hosts Tablescape Thursday! Here we go:

I wanted to go with a “Gulf Coast” sea theme… using everything that is so delightful about living on the coast. Seashells, star fish, hydrangeas, mason jars and sweet tea…all enjoyed with a gentle breeze under the rising moon. An absolutely perfect setting to enjoy the company of someone special.

I started with a lovely Waverly print table cloth… pretty yellow and white stripes set the back drop for bright hydrangeas colored in periwinkle, purples, blues and greens.

I wanted the boldness of the table cloth to really stand out… so I chose a green plate set to match the leaves of the hydrangeas. I topped the plate with a Star Fish accent to give a “lucky to live by the sea” feel. 😉
I tied a simple white napkin (to accent the stripes) with a floral hydrangea print ribbon.
Mason Jars were filled with sweet tea…there is no other way to relax and enjoy a warm spring evening. I tied sheer periwinkle bows onto the mason jars. Such a simple but special way to make a jar go from plain to pretty.
The center jars were filled with hydrangeas and lavender. I arranged the flowers in two old antique bottles and a mason jar filled with shells.

Mason Jar filled with shells.

There were several tea lights around the table…
…and they were trying their best to stay lit amidst the gulf breeze.
Good evening Moon… so glad you came to share in our dinner party. :)

Hope y’all enjoyed my first Tablescape with a little taste of the Gulf Coast. You are welcome back anytime. :)
