Let's Dish # 14 , very appropriate , AT THE BEACH! It's HOT!
First for all the kids who got out of school today, esp. my gkids, :), Happy Summer!
Inspiration for the first table is this great cotton quilt I got at Pottery Barn Outlet, for 6.50. Double size, reversible, and very colorful!
I also was looking at those noodles the kids use at the beach, and decided to make something table related with one.
I slit it apart, this one had indentations all the way around. Then I made an inner slit and fit it around a white charger plate.
With the extra pieces I made place card holders, and napkin rings! Dollar Tree Noodle, 5 charger rims and name cards and napkin rings. Pretty thrifty!
I bought some beach toys at the end of the season last year, and used one as the centerpiece.
TIP: Save those reels Christmas lights come on, they are great to elevate things on a table, just the right size.
I used it on the Buffet table Sunday to raise the centerpiece.
Green swirl flatware on the blue part of the quilt, noodle charger, polka dot plate from clearance at CTS .75
Beach chair salad plate, .50 CTS a few years ago.
Blue flatware on the green part. Both sets are from CTS and were 4.99.
Blue tumbler from CTS, little green fish ramekins from Home Goods, as are the napkins.
Hand painted s and p from CTS, .84 for the set.

I love to do fun tables, but I did an adult one too!

Hope you will join me in the garden , and enjoy all summer brings.
Sit for a while on the side porch and enjoy the breeze, or just shoot it!
