Aren't these plates from Walmart just adorable? Love the colors.Added my bamboo table runner with bamboo silverware and liked how it looked with the beach theme.
I had a few of those cute little fish bowls I had used for something else so grabbed them up. I didn't have enough fish net to put on them and my box I used for my centerpiece but some Burlap ribbon saved the day with a few painted seashells left over from our beach trip last year. I also had a couple of nice larger shells from St. Augustine Beach so painted them as well to use.
A little colored water and some sea shells and well, it worked for me!
Cute little salt and pepper shakers.
I was pleased with my little wooden box I had purchased while in Jesup, Ga. More pleased with the chalk paint recipe that I used. Chalk paint went on smooth. Good thing I love about making your own chalk paint is that it's so much cheaper to make your own. Also there is no need to prime, dries faster and most of the time one coat is all that is needed. (depending on your project)
I really like how the blues, yellows and greens came together for a beach theme.
A little bunting to match.
A few added embellishments along the way!
I didn't want to go and buy more candles so had some craft paper in the colors I wanted to use and decided to wrap some old candles with what I had left over in my stash. Worked great!
I had saved a large tin can for a craft project so decided to use some of the crafting paper I had to wrap it with. I used a little twine at the top and the bottom and well...it sure holds a lot of snacks for the grands!
I love the paper.
I hope that you have enjoyed looking at my cute beach tablescape and other little goodies.
There is nothing like bringing a little bit of the beach to the country!
But in a couple of weeks my toes will be here....
