After spending a day at the beach revelling in bright sunshine and baking heat, why not continue to enjoy the seashore tableside?
Please join us. We have lots of things to play with, including a bucket and spade.
Some sand moulds and a beach chair for someone to lounge on.
Beach Stripes from 222 Fifth is a fairly recent pattern, produced between 2008 and 2013. I went with the four generously sized salad plates. The beach chair plate, in particular, appealed to me. I love the old-fashioned wooden-framed, canvas-slung chairs, though they weigh a ton and are awkward to lug to the beach.
The ballpark-mustard-yellow napkins got another workout. Their vibrant hue goes with so few tablescapes, for obvious reasons, so I’m always pleased when they get an outing.
A mixture of rattan & raffia balls from HomeGoods worked very well for a colourful centrepiece.
Flipflops we have aplenty at our Cape house, but I sprang for a new pair to make a debut at the table.
The little anchors on the soles of the flip flops are so cute!
The seeded aqua glasses are a long-held item, purchased from Nautique on Main Street in Brewster when we first moved in.
Sawyer flatware and rattan napkin rings from World Market were suitably casual. The dinner plate is Queen Anne Pillivuyt from Williams Sonoma years ago, and I believe they still carry it. Yup – just checked. I always have to double check the spelling of “Pillivuyt”; it is definitely not intuitive.
The blue starfish salt and pepper were a gift from friends many Christmases ago. Thank you Paul & Chris!
It’s going to be another scorcher today, and I’ll be glad to come back to a quiet dinner on the patio,
I hope everyone has a wonderful Independence Day tomorrow. Safe travels to any of you wending your way to out of town celebrations. This evening, no doubt we will be trying to contain the hysteria of Taylor, one of our Golden Retrievers, who is scared to death of fireworks. It’s a week-long display down here, much to the delight of all the children and the dismay of the dogs.
I’m sharing this post with Between Naps on the Porch.
Such a fun, beachy table! I love those plates (and like you, the beach chair is my favorite) and all your fun touches – flip flops, sand molds, etc. But the blue starfish salt/pepper set are the most perfect! I’m headed to the beach next month and this table really gets me in the mood for vacation. Happy July to you and yours.
I got most of the accoutrements at Stop ‘N ‘Shop of all places, Joy! A pleasant diversion whilst grocery shopping 🙂
Enjoy your vacation. I often think August is the best beachside month; it’s a bit more mellow and often less crowded. Thanks for stopping in!
So much fun on this table. I have missed out on your tables as it has been crazy busy at the farm but it is raining today so I hope to get caught up.
Welcome back, Lorri! Hope all your projects and endeavours are going well. Enjoy the rainy day – they’re a relief sometimes to get caught up.
This beachy table is so Cape Cod. Love all the colourful bits and bobs to add a little flair especially the salt and pepper shakers. Once again, you outdid your creativity. Enjoy this hot sunny day that we’ve waited so long for!
Thank heaven the hot weather has finally arrived! Himself is at the beach now, gently toasting.
Thanks for visiting the beachy table!
Oh my! The beach — on a table no less! I so love this, especially the chairs and the beachy feeling I get looking at it (over and over again!). You have outdone yourself!
Always fun to be beachward bound, don’t you think? And more fun not to have to leave at dinner time. 🙂
