More White Dishes ~ Coastal Tablescape

I love doing tablescapes, but y'all may have noticed, I don't have a lot of dishes. 
Well...I have a lot of white dishes and a few odds and ends in other colors...salad plates, etc.
So, what did I buy the other day? More white dishes...4 white square dinner plates, to be exact. 

I combined the square plates with some other things I already had.

Bowls from a different set of white dishes, white monogrammed napkins, silver napkin rings and water hyacinth placemats.

Glass vase with sand, seashells and a candle...

...two seashells I spray painted with metallic silver paint. 
(Silver salt and peppers are on my wish list.) 

My old seashell planter is used as a "wine cooler"...

...coastal-look silver dish. 

Silver julep cups, stainless flatware...and my favorite dollar store wine glasses.

Are you ready for a coastal supper? I actually have a real bottle of wine for the wine cooler...Barefoot Chardonnay. :)

Oh I love it. The square plates are so pretty and the planter used as a wine cooler is genius. How fun is this. Hugs, Marty

Love your table of white. Always a favorite of mine. Makes me want to go to the beach.

All it takes is the word "coastal" and I have to see what's going on LOL! It looks great! I have those same placemats but didn't know they were Water Hyacinth! ~AND~ I'll have a sip of the Barefoot Chardonnay in your fav dollar store glasses please! Judi


Very lovely and crisp coastal white Summer table! I love your square dishes and the sea stars around it. I love the planter as a wine cooler, it's perfect and so clever!
Big hugs,

Ok, what time is dinner tonight? I'll be right over. Your table setting is so pretty. I love the mix of white dishes and seagrass and the silver. I never would've thought to spray paint seashells. What a great idea!

Love, Mona

The seashell planter is gorgeous! And I love your white plates with a seashell theme. They are perfect for any decorating! I don't have many dishes either...mostly white Corelle! heehee! Sweet hugs!

Barefoot chardonnay, what a cute name! Your white table makes me think of a beautiful white sand beach. It's absolutely lovely, Babs! Love finding square plates. They add great interest to a table.

I love all things coastal! Your table is beautiful!

Pat said...

Love the Costal theme of this tablescape!
Thank you for sharing!!!

I love your clever idea of spray painting sea shells. Your white square plates look attractive on the round mats. Your tablescape has so much character.

I love this table Babs! The wine in the shell is so great, and I love the mats! Very successful with carefully chosen and unique pieces! Looks great!

You are so clever I thought those were silver salt and peppers! I love the monogram napkins -in the south we love anything monogrammed don't we!

Cathy said...


You couldn't have left those plates behind, they needed to go on a new adventure! Now they have a new home with lots of family. Love how you used the planter to hold the wine.

I really like your table! The colors are perfect and understated...very relaxing. I like all your extra pieces too, I need to spray paint several shells silver, yours look so neat!
(I think we "think" alike...I love anything "sea" related and those kitchen chairs? I have the same ones, except mine are stained oak! and my table this past week? yep, same colors!)
Thanks for sharing...again, I love your table!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Such a pretty tablescape! Love the large shell, you've shown that this piece can be very versatile!
Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday...

Just love this table, Babs!! I love the white and "sand" colors--so refreshing and peaceful. In case you need some support to help with your dish guilt :), I can see why you bought square dishes--they're lovely! I think I need some too! Your silver sea shells are a darling touch. ~Zuni
