Today I’m sharing a pretty blue and green summer costal tablescape. See how to create a beautiful table with colors of blue and green along with coastal accents of sea shells, neutral textures and fresh flowers.
I’m so happy to be joining a small group of my friends for a Celebrate Summer Blog Hop. A big thank you goes to our Celebrate The Holiday host Carol of Bluesky at Home for organizing these fun get togethers.
We have six bloggers participating this month, bringing you their favorite recipes and decorating projects. You will find all the links for everyone participating today at the end of my post.
If you’re popping in after visiting Renae of Peacock Ridge Farm welcome to Thistle Key Lane. I’m happy to have you here. I hope you enjoyed Renae’s summer garden tour as much as I did!
Blue And Green Summer Coastal Tablescape
We are well into summer now, and of course we’re managing each heat wave as it comes through. So instead of al fresco dining on the patio, we’re enjoying a summer coastal tablescape indoors. I’m mixing my favorite colors of blue and green with coastal elements such as sea shells, neutral textures and simple flowers.
Setting A Summer Coastal Tablescape
Our table setting starts with a block print floral tablecloth in blue and white. I don’t use tablecloths very often but I love this look so much I may need to shop for a few more in different colors.
At each place setting I’m using some beachy looking woven grass placemats, and my everyday white dishes. For a casual setting like this one I like tying the utensils together with ribbon or cotton string. My indigo napkins blend in nicely, but I think almost any color can work with blue and white.
Summer Coastal Centerpiece
To complete my summer coastal tablescape I’m bringing in green accents and elements with a coastal vibe. The centerpiece arrangement sits on a vintage bread board.
For this tablescape I like using a bread board instead of a tray, because it allows the shells, sea stars and sand dollars to spill over the sides a little. I’m also bring into the mix of shells, a few pieces of petrified rocks, drift wood and glass floats.
Now for that beautiful healthy green color I have an arrangement of hydrangeas, hypericum and chamomile in a cane wrapped vase. What can be more simple than that! Once again Trader Joe’s, you are my floral hero!
The last little detail I want to point out are the raffia and shell tea light holders. They bring in another layer of interest with a pop of color and a warm glow. To see how to make three different styles of candle holders, click on my post DIY Raffia And Shell Candle Holders.
If you’re wondering about the bowl of blueberries, they are from my backyard. I love decorating with pretty food. We had a bumper crop of blueberries this summer and have them with almost every meal.
