...can you feel it?
the seasons changing??
soon it will be time for a delicious bowl of soup
how shall we serve that delicious bowl of soup??
imagine a seaside inspired table,
that any bowl of soup worth eating,
could appreciate being served on....
romantic candles, enchanting dishes in the shape of shells, memaids and sea horses
lots of iridescent sparkle ~
just like the sun looks on the beautiful sea
like water diamonds...
i love to wear beautiful crochet beach sandals when i visit the beach
i had a set i hadn't worn yet
so i wrapped them around my candles that i gave a brush of metallic champagne wash too.
i rather like how they look paired together!
i know this is hard to see clearly,
but no bubble glass would be complete
without a few extra large silver candy dragees floating in the bottom...
a mermaid matchbox to light those candles...
found shells, driftwood, and a mermaids lost gray pearl necklace
make a lovely table adornment
seahorse linen napkins, complete with lovely pearl shell napkin rings.
i found the seahorse download on etsy
and simply used iron on transfers to place them on my napkins...
and here i took a thrift store find ~
a sweet mermaid candle holder that was once brass
and spray painted it a champagne color
to which i then added a baking sea shell
attaching the two with "liquid nails" glue
for a unique pedestal dish
for my table cloth
i used a most gorgeous skirt!
you read that right!
one day thrifting
i spied this 100% silk beauty
and just knew right away how fabulous it would be as a "table skirt"
i laid an Ikea find, a bed coverlet,
then draped a capiz shell garland around the entire table for seaside whimsy
i made new chair slipcovers for my chairs
after i gave them a fresh coat of paint.
i chose linen because it wears like iron
this linen piece was made in Holland!!
i adore their flirty ruffles,
and most especially...
..their ballerina like leg ties!
and i ask you
what seaside table would be complete without a "bubbly" side table??
life is to be celebrated!
so i say
~ CELEBRATE ~
a gorgeous little girls dress
can become the most enchanting "table skirt" too :)
lovely little details to delight your eye!!!
and one must have a seaside muse
i don't think i need to tell you how i adore mermaids...
she is this sea tables muse!
i made her crown out of real seaweed
that i painted a gray-blue and then a soft silver overwash...
i enjoy a little table side music
so my mer holds a harp...
"sea" her starfish bracelet??
(i know, that was bad!!)
i knew she would be spinning around,
so the back needed to be beautiful too...
i really like how her paper vellum tail looks like the capiz shells
i so enjoyed creating this sea side table!!
for the rest of the menu
to go alongside that delicious bowl of lobster bisque,
i'm thinking surf and turf!!
