Sometimes a pretty table is all about the centerpiece. That is certainly the case with this colorful, sea-inspired table that is really strong on the “Wow” factor.
It came about thanks to a much deserved bit of retail therapy that I took at Pier One. It was one expensive trip I can tell you,, but I reasoned that it was cheaper than a therapist, and much cheaper than a criminal defense attorney.
Not a turquoise fan in the past, these days I find I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I have found it to be very versatile in that it pairs nicely with a lot of colors.
I spotted the fish from across the store and had to have it.
I had no idea at the time where I would put it, and really no concept (in that big, well-stocked store) of just how big it was, so was a bit shocked when I got it home.
It works though, and I love it. I expect that this guy is going to look great with a Luminara® candle inside.
I also loved the turquoise and green versions of my favorite placemats that I probably use more than any others (you can see them here and here).
Naturally, I had to get matching napkins (these were on sale, thank goodness).
When I spotted the stemware, well, I had to have that, too, but demonstrated extreme restraint, I thought, when I didn't buy the matching pitcher.
The rest of the table came about from what I already had in stock (from previous trips to Pier One!). These starfish candle holders I bought last year and used them here and here.
I wanted to kick off the spring and summer seasons with a bang, and think I managed to pull that off here. Hope you enjoy it.
