A Beachcombers Summer Tablescape
This season I have just been obsessed with everything beach themed so I created a beachcombers summer tablescape to carry us forward into the season.
As we move past Easter sometimes it can be a challenge to determine the next thing for our dining areas as we move from spring into the summer. This year I have been highly inspired by everything beach themed so I decided why create a beachcombers summer tablescape?I felt like beach theme so fun and a little different the Americana red white and blue themes that I have done in years past for the summertime. Plus if you are regular reader you know that seaglass and those aqua tones of the beach have always been some of my favorites and will never go out style as far as I am concerned, because I adore them!I personally find the tones of the beach to be so soothing, shades of blue, aqua beiges, and even some pale greens. Honestly this particular color palette has always appealed to me, that I find myself always revisiting them regularly in my decor choices. I think it is because they bring me solace and comfort which is true of most blue tones, especially when you look deeper into the Psychology of Color which I did an entire post about if you are interested.I also loved adding in the fun textures of the driftwood and seashells to the table as well. These items are great conversational pieces as well as mementos from varies beach vacations. Below you can see a collection of polished Tiger Cowrie shells which are some of my favorites.
I also really like the versatility of these fun sea shell orbs which can be used in multiple applications during the summer months. They are great for unique pieces to add to bookcases or on nightstands or end tables.
The only thing I will say is that they are a little bit fragile, so you do not want to drop them; however if you do the seashells can be glued right back on. As you can tell I speak from experience. So as long as the shells do not actually break you are good, but if they do then you are screwed, sorry 🙂I also thought having little sand buckets to hold my votive candles really added a nice beach feel and a fun playful essence to the table. It reminds me a bit of a zen desk garden that you can rake, or and ash tray. I guess it is whichever you prefer and, it just depends on where your mindset is LOL!Of course we will be serving up my infamous Beachcomber Cocktails at this festive table which you can see the recipe below. You may remember this one from my Top 10 Best Summertime Cocktails post last summer, if not, you should check it out for this season!
This is like the perfect tropical vacation in a glass. This is really good the colder it is, so I recommend all the juices be chilled and serve over crushed ice or use a shaker.
