This tablescape has been on my mind since May when my birthday gift from my Mum was the chargers and demitasse cups & saucers.
But I needed something to go with them. Some of you wondered about the chargers when you spotted one on the sideboard in the Birthday Bees tablescape.
Shopping with Mum at Home Goods later in the summer we spied the Starfish salad plates. We picked up two sets. Perfect for a table of six right? Yes and no. In each pack of four there were two in periwinkle tones and two in aqua. Of course if you don’t get them at HG when you see them, there is a 90 percent chance they will be gone when you return.
Luckily my niece Briana lives in Vegas where there are three (Three !) HG. She found me another pack of four. She’s the best. I already had the appetizer size starfish so it was perfect.
The beautiful lace tablecloth was a wedding gift from my SIL Debbie. We are blessed to have received such an incredible handmade work of art.
The completed place setting with small starfish.
Salad starfish. Isn’t the shine lovely? The dishes are ‘handmade” (and I quote the tag) “Each product is produced uniquely by Turkish Masters combining traditional and modern techniques.”
Even the back of these dishes are incredible. The texture is great.
The white dinner plates are my favorites, I used them in another ocean themed tablescape : Lighthouse.
The birthday chargers and cup & saucers.
Anyone for an espresso?
I made two sets of lapkins as I couldn’t decide which I liked best.
The white fabric with shells I actually purchased years ago to make a summer dress. Boy I’m glad I never did that.
The starfish napkin rings were used to shorten a to long tablecloth Under the Sea. You can really see Debbie’s craft in this shot.
Just a few more shots.
Thanks for the visit. Check back soon as I am excited that I am nearing 10,000 visits and will be having a lapkin giveaway.
