Coastal Patriotic Tablescape

Happy Fourth of July! And THANK YOU to those who served and presently serve to perserve the freedom we hold so dear!



Today I'm sharing a tablescape I created for the Fourth of July. I've set my coastal theme as a base and added red, white, and blue to it. After the Fourth, I can make some quick changes and have my beachy coastal tablescape for the rest of the summer.

 
The centerpiece is a hurricane filled with blue decor sand, shells, and a blue candle. This usually stays on a bookshelf in the living room as everyday decor, but I thought it would be fitting for the dining room table for a while.


The place setting includes a new blue plate I picked up at Tuesday Morning. I placed a paper patriotic pinwheel in each napkin ring. The pinwheels came six in a pack from Michaels.


I'm using the no sew runner and pieces of netting again.


On each side of the centerpiece is a mason jar filled with blue sand, shells, and a candle. I stuck a flag in each one. The flag will be easy to remove and the jars will remain as part of the summer tablescape.

 
A few shells scattered about and it's done.



Thanks for stopping by! I'm linking up with Tablescape Thursday today.

  4. I kept changing my mind as to my favorite part of this table. First, it was the blue sand in the centerpiece. Don't know why, but I just like that. Then, it was the place setting and that little pinwheel. Then, I decided that it was the fish net. That part was just perfect.

    I really just think the whole thing comes together beautifully. (I would love some cobalt stemware like that. I see it out in Blog Land and remind myself not to covet something so silly...)

    So I don't covet, but I do LIKE!
