Casual Dinner At The Beach

by Sherry

Okay you got me!  I am really not at the beach…a girl can dream!  I had to show off my recent wins.  I won this fabulous sand pail from Low Tide High Style, and isn’t it just the cutest thing?  I also won these adorable place card bubbles from Maureen at Inglenook Decor. These glass bubbles have a hole to hold flowers and a slot for the place card or pictures. I think this is the greatest idea!  I have never won anything in my life and now I get two wins in one week. Thank you both for these wonderful giveaways.

Sorry about the poor quality of this picture. but I had to show you a photo of me diving with the stingrays

My table is set for a casual dinner with a beach theme. My new sand pail is holding a beautiful piece of white coral and the tall glass vase is filled with water and a sea fan. The water magnifies the sea fan and floating candles are also placed in the vase. I have used an antique ships lantern, telescope and large glass float to set the beach mood.

I absolutely adore these wood charges from Pier One. Hubby bought me these for my recent birthday.  The dishes are from JC Penneys Chris Madden collection.  I love them because they are so versatile and can be mixed with so many of my other dish collections.

I am linking up with  Marty at  A Stroll Thru Life  for Table Top Tuesday.

Sherry, Love the dishes!

I had to laugh because prior to "Blogland" all I ever won was FOOD! Hams, Turkeys and Cheese…..and although nice, not too personal!

Enjoy your goodies and thanks for sharing!!

Love your beachy themed table, Sherry! Those chargers are great! I could see them being used for something other than chargers, too.

Hi Sherry,
That's a very pretty table! It really does look beachy. I love the chargers, they are so unusual and look great with the other dishes.
Lucky you, two prizes at one time. And they are both fun ones, too!
Stop by for a visit sometime,
