Coastal Wreath Trivet

Good Morning! Hope y'all had a great weekend.
It was too hot to work outside Saturday and Sunday, so I played with the dishes in the kitchen. 
I wanted to show you the silver wreath trivet I recently you guessed it...the thrift store.  You know how cheap thrifty I am.

Of course, since I was playing, I had to add a few more things on the table.

I didn't really need another trivet, but it's silver, and has seashells, seahorses, lobsters and crabs on it. How could I pass it up? 
Plus, you can also hang it with the little hanger behind the bow...but I doubt I'll do that.

I used a clear plate on top, and scooched the bowl of shrimp dip and crackers to the side, so you could still see the design of the trivet.

I added a few more coastal touches...a seashell planter with basil from the garden, hydrangeas and a starfish on the napkins. 
Vanity Fair napkins have seashells embossed on them. I've used them for years, and I'm not being compensated...I just like them.

Love this shell spoon my neighbor gave me. I think it's a coffee measure, but I use it for other things, too.

The shrimp dip is just cream cheese, mayo, chives and a few salad shrimp, for a quick snack to keep me going, while I take photos of the table. Ha.

Hope y'all have a great week. 

Happy Summer!

I love everything nautical and the touches of blue in the dishes are perfect with this setting. Enjoy your week and this summertime weather! Hugs!

What a great find Babs...your table looks so pretty!!

Kelly said...

I love the idea of using a clear plate on top of the trivet so you can see it. It's beautiful. I recently went to a new thrift store close to my house but didn't see anything good.

Christine @ Rustic-Refined said...

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

Wow- that's really a nice piece. You were so smart to put the clear glass plate on it and make it into a serving dish! That's a nice spoon your neighbor gave you!

Stacey said...

Your table is so pretty and perfectly summery.

Thanks for your sweet comment about my new sunflower wreath. :)

Love your pretty coastal trivet!
So lovely the way you've styled your table. I'll have to try some of that shrimp dip, looks yum!

Gorgeous coastal trivet, dear friend!!!
Once you said, "Tied with a ribbon". . .I can so~o~o see this trivet used in a variety of ways!!!
Love your tablescape vignette!!!
P.S. I, too, use Vanity Fair paper napkins!!! Great minds!

Janice Kay Schaub said...

I just love that trivet, I also love the table settings, especially the blue. I have the blue goblets myself. I like the theme too. What great ideas

Sarah said...

Beautiful find, Babs. Of course you needed to bring this one home. Your nautical theme is refreshing.
Some recent rains have the garden growing wild. I worked a bit late this evening when it was cooler. Too humid to do much during the day. '-)

Marigene said...

Lovely table, Babs. I would have bought that silver shell trivet,'s so cute. Love the hydrangea!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Alycia Nichols said...

You're not the least bit cheap, Babs! Everybody loves a good bargain, and you're just really good at finding them! The trivet is really cool with all that sea life on it, and your tablescape is lovely! I really like how you used the basil in the planter. I'm sure that provided a nice fragrance as well as looking pretty. Your hydrangea, of course, are g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!!!

As you can see, I'm running about a week behind. Last week was very, very busy. I'm hoping to catch a break this week. Hope your weekend was a good one!
