I mentioned last week how much I enjoy being able to use a specialty item in more than one table setting. Such was the case with the fish net that I bought (using a coupon, of course) from Michael's. Last week it was used on my One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish table, and this week I am using it again in my Swim with the Fishes table.
I think this has to be one of my favorite tables of all time. The vibrant sea tones are really wowing me these days, so this table makes me happy. Plus it contains a lot of things that I really love.
The little turquoise fish dish is such a fun item. It is a vintage Bauer Pottery “Chicken of the Sea” tuna baker. I have one in yellow as well, so plan to pair them in a future table setting.
The plates from World Market I absolutely fell in love with the moment I saw them. I love anything fishy, and also gravitate toward decor with text. These filled the bill on both counts.
The placemats and stemware came from Pier One last year and work very well with this set.
The flatware is Fiestaware.
The lantern at center is another favorite find from Pier One. I use a Luminara candle in it just to be on the safe side. When it is not illuminating a table, the lantern lights up a bamboo drinks cart in the bedroom that, no, I do not use for drinks.
The little basket of shells feature those I have found while at the shore, and a few piece that have been gifted.
