Napkins are layered~ a pattern (Target) with a solid (World Market) as well as the napkin rings~ one of abalone shells found beach combing the aisles at Kohl’s this spring, and another shell napkin ring from Stein Mart found several years ago.
A quilt, from Kohl’s used before here, multitasks too~ alternating between beds and tables, and best of all, requires no ironing for the table.
Since I comb the aisles at HomeGoods like a shell seeker, I found round trays a couple of months ago~ drawn to the filigree edges and soft gray color, picking them up not quite sure how I would use them.
The smaller size tray turned out to be ideal to serve
as a charger for plates~ Paula Deen Whitaker/Target.com.
Lanterns from Pottery Barn, are also soft gray and weathered in appearance, with an edge treatment that echoes the trays’ filigreed rim.
Amethyst goblets from Target are
blooming with Queen’s Anne Lace ~
And more shells are scattered
in the candle-filled lanterns ~
Flatware from Pottery Barn is vintage-inspired with a worn patina and marked with a script I love~ handy too in case you don’t know your knife from your spoon :)
