Ocean Beach Themed Candlelight Table Setting Featuring Warren Kimble Lighthouse Sailboat Plates

Welcome to the 726th Tablescape Thursday!

The painter is almost finished in the garage–hopefully, he’ll be done by today or tomorrow. He and I rolled back the plastic covering the cabinets before he left last night so I could get to my charger plates and glassware to set a table for this week’s TT.

 

It was the end of the day and super cloudy and rainy out, so I decided to just go with a candlelight table for this week’s Tablescape Thursday.

It was quite dark out by the time the table was finished. It’s still very much summer here in Georgia, though I know autumn is just around the corner. I just wasn’t ready for a fall table yet.

The only light for this table was a lamp on the kitchen counter and the candles on the table.

For this beachy table setting, I pulled out the shell and sea glass charger plates I made several summers back.

Sailboat and Lighthouse Salad Plates

 

Love these Warren Kimble lighthouse-sailboat salad plates! This gorgeous aqua blue is my favorite color for a beach-themed table! It feels so calming–like the feeling you have when relaxing on a beach house deck overlooking the ocean.

A couple of months ago I shared these aqua-blue, buffalo plaid napkins I had just purchased. I wasn’t sure how I would use them when I bought them, but I knew they would come in handy one of these days.

Aqua and White Napkins

 

I just purchased them in yet another color last night. I’ve collected them in so many colors over the years, there’s just something about buffalo plaid that draws me in…I love it! (The napkins are available in many colors here: Aqua Buffalo Plaid Napkins.)

The taupe/sand-colored napkin reminds me of walking along sandy shores while the aqua-blue napkins are the ocean waves crashing along the shore and bringing with them beautiful shells and sea glass. Shells and sea glass are truly beautiful treasures, gifts from the sea.

The blue shell and beaded napkin rings were a find in Cracker Barrel a few years back. They always have the cutest dinnerware items in their little store each summer.

As I was removing, then returning, all the dishes for the garage makeover, I came across these blue glasses covered in summery Adirondack chairs and made a mental note to use them sometime soon. I remembered them last night and they worked well in this setting. I love the little etched Adirondack design.
