    1. Love the idea of a seaside tablescape even though you don’t live by the sea. I especially liked the linen ruffled tablecloth you featured.

    1. Beautiful and elegant table setting.

    Lovely! My favorite piece is the container that holds the flowers. In that setting it reminds me of an old lantern, perfect for the coastal, casual vibe. Source for the container?

  2. Lory, that taupe acrylic is a knock out! And those blue swirls on the salad plates………..aahhh. This is a “must pin” situation! Sand, sky, and ocean blues. WOW!

    1. Thanks so much, Ginger!! Pin away!! I keep forgetting to including my pre-designed pins in my posts… lol. But you can pin any of the pics… 😉

  3. Lory, I actually have those two plates and can’t wait to combine them like this! Your table is gorgeous, as always. I always love the days when you showcase one of your tablescape creations, since our styles are so alike! This beauty is pinned. Thanks so for another beauty!

  4. What a pretty coastal inspired table Lory! I love the marbled plates. You are a master of the beautiful table my friend.


  5. So gorgeous, Lory. I’m in love with those bowls (I swear they look like glass!) and those napkins. And the peony centrepiece of course. I’m interested to see how your table ages. Love your tablescapes!
    Hugs, Jamie

    1. Thanks, Jamie! I’m guessing it won’t age well because it’s pine, but I was probably going to get rid of it anyway, so figured it’s worth a shot. Will eventually get something more vintage that’s actually meant to be outside.

  6. This is a beautiful take on this theme. The overall ethereal vibe is very relaxing just as a coastal dinner should be. I love how your tables are always elegant without feeling stuffy. Thank you for the inspiration!

  7. What a beautiful table!!! I can imagine your table on an ocean cliff overlooking the sea with the breeze blowing the tablecloth gently!!! You have taken me to a whole other place!!! Love those bowls, hard to believe they are acrylic.

  8. Very pretty and elegant, love the colors. I much prefer this to seashell/rope etc nautical, although that is nice if you love it. ‘ The Enchanted Home’ still has these silver chargers. I bought some not too long ago.

  9. For starters, my sweet husband just doesn’t eat fish, and most sea inspired settings that I see suggest a fish dinner. Your’s on the other hand would be just a wonderful for tetrazzini or a number of other entrees. I think that you’ve inspired me…even though I’m out here living on the prairie! Beautiful design work. Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

  10. Beautiful Summer table outdoors. I love it cause it’s so fresh without suggesting any particular kind of motif for the plates.
    The faux centerpiece is just as gorgeous… my very fav are the stemware.

  11. Setting a table seems easy, but it takes talent to pull everything together. You always do such an amazing job at mixing elements to make a beautiful tablescape. Thank you for sharing your table on Merry Monday.

  12. Beautiful outdoor setting

    Love this beautiful tablescape, especially the beautiful pewter chargers!

  14. Michelle Buzek says:

    Where did you find the beautiful napkin rings? I did not see them listed on the source list.

  15. I love the turq swirl salad plate! When I clicked on the link it took me to a pier 1 error page. Is there another link that would work? Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Vanessa! This is one of the problems with Pier 1 because they don’t keep most of their stock past one season. The pattern is called “Katalla Bay Ceramic Dinnerware”. Its listed on Replacements.com but it’s out of stock. You can also try eBay from time to time. Hope that helps.

  16. Ruth C Newton says:

    This is such a beautiful tablescape. I love the vintage feel and the neutral color palette.

  17. Susan Honeycutt says:

    I also don’t live by the coast, I am from San Diego living in Texas. I do my best to bring a coastal vibe into our home. Thank you for inspiring me more‼️

  18. Lynn Burnett says:

    Blue is my favorite color and the coastal blues are absolutely gorgeous.

  19. Linda Buchanan says:

    Beautiful tablescape.

  20. Jill Scott says:

    I can’t believe you used faux flowers for the centerpiece! Lovely!

  21. I don’t live by the water either (sad face here) but I love your design & colors. Thanks!

  22. Your blog is wonderful love your tablescape, they are always beautiful I can hear the ocean!!! Love it

  23. What a beautiful nod to coastal! Not a seashell, sand dollar or starfish in sight. But it says coastal all the same. I love the mix of faux and fancy. Truly would be a delight to have a meal at this table.


    You described it perfectly, peaceful.

  25. Cheryl Foley💓 says:

    Such a beautiful tablescape. That centerpiece is exquisite…hard to believe it isn’t real.

    Beautiful dishes!! I’ll be trying this next week after the 4th is over!
