How To Create A Summer Seashell Tablescape

I kept the look casual by starting with just straw braided placemat. Then I added a linen charger in black. I love the crisp pop that black gives a table.



Then I used a black and white striped nautical look napkin and wrapped it with a jute napkin ring. For a fun and festive touch I used a galvanized mini bucket filled with sand a a star fish. You could use these as name cards and tuck a name into the little tin. You could also add seashell candy. 



I love the cane wrapped glasses and how they tie in all the light summer vibes.






For the centerpiece, I started with a wood base and topped it with a wooden bowl and black pitcher. This brought out pops of black. I filled the case with a summer seaweed style greenery garland. The light feathery texture gives it soft look and pop of color. Next I filled it with some white sand and scattered a variety of seashells in a laid back arrangement.



Thats all there is to it. A causal summertime table table perfect for a dinner party or BBQ outside. DO you decorate with seashells? You could also bring in more color if you wanted like a bright pink or yellow. I hope this got you in the mood for summertime entertaining because I know I’m ready.


Happy Entertaining
