Backyard Buffet

I never tire of natural elements for table decoration. And outdoor settings seem to demand them.

And this nautical themed china MADE me succumb to the marketing genius of Pottery Barn!

Shells are turning up everywhere and my table is no exception.

But these nature inspired plates ARE exceptional all mixed up with script and postal elements.

They got me coming AND going!

Here they are paired up with vintage flatware and crisp white linens.

My customary plain vanilla 100% linen napkins.

And my vintage pewter mugs.

I especially love the map and compass plates.

So naturally coral is part of my centerpiece corralled in more wicker to "anchor" everything. Wink, wink.

I'm going to let the rest just speak for itself! Enjoy!








I hope you're just lovin' the outdoors!
Ciao! for now! and Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty table. I like all the shades of white, soft grey and natural sandy colors. That makes it somehow calming and fresh. Beautifull plates with so much nich natural decorative elements, I love it.
