Supper by the Shore

The late Mr. O-P was from New Jersey, so every summer, sandwiched in between other obligations, we made a trip to the Jersey shore under the guise of visiting friends and family. I miss those days.

While I still have an interest in travel, without him, my heart just isn’t in it. So, I decided that the next best thing would be to enjoy the feel of the shore by way of this seaside table for two.

The versatile round tablecloth in burlap gets a lot of use. In this setting it is topped with a fishnet to give it that true ocean vibe.

 The hurricane at center, wrapped in rope, I bought years ago from Pottery Barn. It’s amazing, how changing the size and color of the candle, makes such a big difference in its overall appearance. I love it!

I decided to go with rustic chargers, so used my favorite tin ones from local shop The White Rabbit. They are topped with chestnut brown nubby-edged plates from Pier One’s spice collection.

The salad plates on top are part of a set of four, each with a different denizen of the sea. They are made in Italy and were purchased years ago from World Market.

The teal napkins and turquoise stemware are from Pier One. The adorable starfish tea-light holders are either from Pier One or Crate & Barrel, I can’t remember which. I have had them a long time and love them.

The bamboo flatware is always great fun and elicits lots of comments. You can find it here.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my humble attempt at Seaside dining. Come back next week when high swap a few things around and make this table look entirely different. You can do the same. Sometimes it’s just that easy. See you then!

Lovely table setting . Being a Jersey girl, we spent many a summer day and night at the Jersey shore especially Atlantic City when it was in its heyday!

So cute Pattie! I love your plates, and you know I love anything coastal! Your pitcher is awesome too and I love the netting on the table~

Beautiful table for two Pattie - anyone would love to join you! The salad plates are darling and the pitcher and your hurricane are just stunning! Kim from thecatswhiskerz.com (if this shows up as anonymous).

What a cool table - the fishnet is genius. I'm a big fan of your stemware! I sound like a broken record, but this might be my favorite table - lol!

Your place settings are amazing. I love these plates. One day last year I stopped in at a Pier 1 (it has closed down now) and although I didn't buy anything I sure took a lot of photos! I love that place. Also World Market is another favorite.

That World Market...they have some of the coolest dishes! I don't exactly remember these (but then again, I can't remember what I had for breakfast this morning!), but they are spectacular! I LOVE them!!! I really like it when dishes have different renderings on them. Makes the table look more interesting, and everyone can claim their favorite.

I've never been to the Jersey Shore or anywhere even close, but you sure make it look like an inviting prospect!
