She sells seashells.........








My daughter invited a group of friends over Saturday evening for a little get together. We were not planning on using the dining room, but she asked me to "dress" the table. Some of her guests were from Canada and Australia, so I thought a Sea Shell theme would be fun for our world travelers.

Please stop by and visit these other lovely parties -

Hello,
your beachy theme makes a fabulous table. I can imagine that it looks original much better than on the nice photos. The details are so wonderful like the shell relief borders on the plates. I am so fond tho shells. Thank you for sharing this pretty tablesetting and I hope you will have a great party on that table.
Best greetings, Johanna

Sandi

Hi Jocelyn! So nice of you to visit me at The Writer's Reverie - hope you'll be back soon!

I enjoyed my visits to your two blogs - love the quilting and only wish I had the time to indulge! I'm afraid the paper crafting is the quickie for me between classes to stay creatively fed.

Your tablescape is stunning! What's on the menu is what I want to know!

Visit soon!
Joy!

I LOVED your table! As a costal dweller, seashells and seascapes are close to my heart. You have really evoked the spirit of the coast. Thanks so much for the lovely post!

"She Sells Seashells"...and I am Sold!!! Fabulous table! I think it's so neat that you considered where your guests hailed from as you put the look together. I'm sure they were quite pleased as was your daughter!
