Shells and Sticks Tablescape

My tablescape today is another simple summer look.  I found these beautiful aqua plates at the flea market, but they did have a Marshall's tag on the back, however, no maker's mark.


Again, I used a burlap table topper.  I just love this look.  It's very natural.  I paired it with natural placemats and some ironstone and old weathered silver.

I absolutely love my yardstick pot.  Isn't it adorable?  Such a simple but fabulous idea!  I put a few of my shells in it and tipped it on its side.
As fun as this is, I'm not sure it would be the easiest thing to make.

Aren't these aqua plates pretty?  I only found two of them and two of the cups.  That was enough for me to put this look together.

Like I said, they came from Marshall's.

All these colors remind me of the seashore.

Soft and restful.    
Mix in some beautiful roses and this made a delightful afternoon spot.  Thanks for joining me.

Hi Maggie,
Love your pretty and serene beach inspired table. Love that yardstick
basket, so cute! and like how you turned it on it's side. I too, am the queen of turning things on their side and putting stuff in them. Used
to have a lil friend of my sons that used to turn everything back up the way it should be cause she thought they fell over I guess. Used to crack me up!!
Anyway, I love those blue dishes and have admired them many times at Home Goods...........such a beautiful color and design, and yes, the color does remind me of the beach as well.
Lovely setting.
Have a good rest of the week hon,
Nellie
