Summer Beach Tablescape and a Summer Tablescape Party

Trish and I love summer and with it, trips to the beach. South Carolina has some beautiful beaches and we are so blessed to be just an afternoon drive away from our incredible coastline.

We are super excited to have been asked by our friend and fellow blogger, Laura from Finding Home to participate in a Summer Tablescape Party…

Sumer Tablescape Button - Final

We took our inspiration straight from our sandy beaches here in good ‘ole South Carolina…


We love enjoying our evenings outside on the porch and the family time out there is priceless, so much can be learned at the family dinner table…


I am a simple girl, but I love details. This tablescape has lots of small elements that together create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. It also got the … “Mom, when are we going to the beach?” response.


From cute little starfish, to capiz shell covered candles, this beachy table reminds me of childhood with my toes in the sand.


I even threw in some jute twine and these Dip Dyed Candlesticks.I think jute just goes with a beachy or rustic scene. These simple dollar store candles took on a new life with some inexpensive jute twine wrapped around them.

DIY Faux Rattan Beverage Coozies! Bring a bit of the beach to your table!

I am just in love with these super simple Faux Rattan Beverage Coozies I created. Way inexpensive and the perfect final touch to the table. I will have a full tutorial on these little gems another day.


I just loved creating this Summer Beach Tablescape and hope that I have inspired you to look around you for inspiration on creating your next  project!

We would love for you to hop on over and check out all these amazing bloggers and their incredible tablescapes too!

  6. These suggestions come at a great time :) Dear Daughter celebrates her birthday in August and I always go for Beach inspired Tablescapes. She loves the beach and that ladi back touch these scapes have…
    And since she’s the “Mom, don’t fret. It’s just a birthday” ;) Mantra I’m always afraid of too much or too little so we both get pleased with the look achevied. Uncommon always have the best suggestions but today you nailed it perfectly. Since she’s Scout guess who’ll be in charge of crafting the napkin’s rigs? ;)
    Thank you for sharing.

  7. This is beautiful! I love the jute wrapped candles and the teal sticks. Beautiful job ladies!

  8. How beautiful. I love the coastal and beachy look (but I do live in Florida after all), but I especially love those gorgeous candlesticks. Looking forward to seeing you both soon!

  9. I love the beautiful summer colors. Thanks for all the great ideas!

  10. How lovely! I would get the same response from my kids – my middle girl thinks it is just terrible that we have never taken her to the beach. We now have a vacation fund started so we can take them to the beach sometime!
