 Living here in South Carolina, the beach is only a short drive away, and always a part of our family memories.

Whether is is playing in the ocean, hunting shells, or simply taking in the beauty, Trish and I love the coast of SC…

Let me show you how we brought a bit of that beach back to our homes…

Beautiful Summer Beach Tablescape with DIY Dip Dyed Wooden Candlesticks.

To us, the beach is about the neutral colors of nature and a pop of ocean blue! These fabulous Dip Dyed Wooden Candlesticks, made by Trish, are the perfect jumping off point for our outdoor table, don’t you think? You will never believe what she made them from, and how easy they are for you to create.


You just have to incorporate seashells into a Summer Beach Tablescape, right? I added a few starfish to our table, in a bleached white color. I also added capiz shells to the bottom of some simple dollar store pillar candles. This tablescape reminds me of my childhood, and toes in the coastal sand!


We added a touch of linen to our table with these simple linen napkins. Add a nautical knot jute napkin ring and you have the perfect, simple accent. A basket inspired charger completes this look perfectly, wouldn’t you agree?

Create these simple DIY Faux Rattan Beverage Coozies.

Any kids of the 70’s out there? Go ahead raise your hand if you remember the pepto pink plastic glasses with rattan inserts. They are one of those memories of my childhood that is stuck in my head! I created these Faux Rattan Drink Coozies with those in mind. Rattan is a beachy texture and adds a bit of warmth to the table.

So, have I convinced you yet to bring a bit of summer and the beach to your table? I hope that our Summer Themed Beach Tablescape has inspired you to ponder your memories of the beach, and share them with your family and friends!

    Love it!! It’s so beautiful and peaceful. I could just hear the waves crashing….ahhh. You did an amazing job. Love it!!

    Lovely table decor. About the candlesticks: in the text it says “You will never believe what she made them from, and how easy they are for you to create.”
    But I don’t find any instructions on your page about how to create them.
    Also, what material did you use for your table runners? And…..did you glue the shell pieces directly onto the bottom of the candles or onto a votive glass piece that the candle sets it?

      Sue, Thanks so much! The runners are premade jute runners. The shells are glues to the candles. You can see the tutorial for the candlesticks by simply clicking the Blue Underlined link that says “Dip Dyed Wooden Candlesticks”. :) Hope this helps!

    Sue Gray – simply click on “Dip Dyed Wooden Candlesticks” (it is underlined and highlighted in turquoise) in the paragraph under the first photo of the candlesticks and the DIY instructions will pop up. I live near the beach in Sunny California and your beach theme will be just as at home on our coast as yours – and just in time for the 4th of July! I love it and I love your site! Where did you find the chargers with the “basket look”? Our big craft store chain out here is Michaels. Are they in your area as well? I’m so glad I found your site and I’ve already signed up for your newsletter!
