Seaside Tablescape

I designed this seaside themed tablescape last year using mostly products from Anthropologie but also a few items I already had on hand. My challenge was to create a tablescape using as much of the store’s product as possible, particularly the dinnerware pieces. This is what I came up with:

This is actually a jewelry/soap holder from the store’s bath collection but I decided to use it a place card  holder for my seashell instead! It’s amazing what you can do with what you already have. An ordinary olive oil bottle can be used to hold coffee syrups, a soap dish can act as a place card holder and a shower curtain can double as a table cloth! Think outside the box the next time you’re looking for a vase or a pitcher…you’d be amazed at what you’ll find around the house!

 
The lanterns and flowers are mine but everything else is from the store (including the sand and the box…though they were not for sale). The dinnerware is the Lotus Dinnerware Collection with the Tidal Bounty Dessert Plates. The glassware is called Encased Amber and the silverware is the Dandelion Greens Flatware which I personally own and love. I used the Flamenco Shower Curtain as my tablecloth and borrowed the Natural Sponges from the store’s bath collection.
