Smooth Sailing Tablescape

Pat must be thinking about water a lot lately (or lack of it)......she decided to do a "water" theme tablescape this week. She took an old sailing ship model that was in my garage and found some accent plates that we have and put them together to set this week's table.

As as promised last week, I am not going to mention water rationing or the fact that Los Angeles wasted 20 million gallons (yes, I said 20 MILLION gallons) of water in 3 1/2 hours because they did not turn a water leak off fast enough. Sorry, Pat, you still only get 50 gallons a day.......but I am not going to mention it this week........

So - think of clear skies, blue water, and lots of it....
Over view of the table

The place setting - Accent plates are "Signals" by American Atelier

Flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings

The dinner plate is actually a rust color. It is called "Spice Route Paprika" from Pier 1

I love these odd glasses. They are called "Reflection" by Imperial Glass Company.

Pat used two luncheon napkins - rust and ivory held together by a "nautical" looking knot napkin ring

Pat didn't use the cup and saucer together on the table. However, she took the saucer and used it as a bread and butter plate.

Black lanterns flank the sailing ship

The slightly raised centerpiece sits on a soy milk carton covered in a black napkin and topped with a large net.

One of four different lighthouses - this one is "Cape Hatteras."

This one is "Cape Neddick"

This one is "West Quoddy Head"

This one is "Split Rock"

Pat makes these tea lights from our local Humboldt Bay Oyster shells

  1. I absolutely love this tablescape! I have a small collection of lighthouses, so this design really caught my eye! Your colors are perfect to accent those colors on the plates, and I love your centerpiece. Nicely done, ladies!!
