I wanted to change up the table a little bit for this week still using some of my beachy items. I have this china which always makes me think of a yacht when I see it. Not that I’ve been on many yachts (if any) or know what china they might use. It’s the rope-like edge design which puts me in mind of something nautical.
This china was a great buy at one of my favorite outlets, Fortessa. They have sales several times each year where they open up their warehouse section. I have taken advantage of these sales on more than one occasion.
I used the rattan chargers to give a more relaxed and organic feel.
To add to the beach feel, I included two lanterns and placed them on star decorated dishes.
The centerpiece is a thrifted platter on which I have placed the Pyrex baby bottles I found at a recent yard sale. Lacking any nautical flags, I used good ol’ American flags to display. I never tire of seeing them.
I hope you enjoyed this peek at my Hint of Nautical tablescape.
