Yesterday it was such a nice and sunny day, I thought it would be fun to set the table outside for a seaside dinner. Our new "home away from home" is perched high upon a bluff overlooking the beautiful Puget Sound, and the views are just amazing!
Warning, lots of pictures here!!!
Who says you can't use your best lace tablecloth on a chippy old wooden table?
As a last minute idea, I cut a few snippets of burlap from the coffee sack I bought last weekend and made little coasters. Easy peasy!
A few more little bits of burlap, some hot glue, and shells from our beach made fun little napkin rings. I love the contrast of the dainty white vintage linen napkins against the ruff burlap!!
A romantic setting indeed!
Playing around a bit with Picnik!
I bought this pretty white wooden tray at a church rummage sale a few years ago for a mere $2! Shabbiliscious!
Vintage apothecary bottles are great stand ins for bud vases! I found the cute little white wire carrier last weekend at the show in Snohomish. A few sea shells and driftwood add to the beachy appeal.
The rhododendron and azaleas are in their glory right now! I used some of my milk glass collection to showcase them.
One of my friend's sent me this pretty aqua hanging candleholder. Love it!
All set to watch the sunset over the sound!
See, I told you there were lots of pictures in this post! I got a little snap happy!
Seated side by side to take in the views!
I showed you the other day this gorgeous quilted runner, that my sister sent me. She did a fabulous job creating it, and I think the colors are just perfect for our sea side supper table!
Love the way the light casts shadows at this time of the early evening!
I am in love with vintage blue Mason jars! I use them for everything from storing doggie treats, to displaying shells, to vases for fresh flowers.
