Sailing Away Tablescape

Since boating season is still in full go on our little lake, I was inspired to do another nautical table.
I had passed up this pair of seagulls twice at Hobby Lobby, but the third time I could no longer resist. The fact that they were now 50% off helped too!
I had some scraps left of this fabulous Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! that I thought would make really cute sail boats.
Then of course I needed something to put a little salt water taffy in for a favor.  So I made these simple little totes and attached an anchor I stamped and cut with the Sailing Home Bundle with some nautical bakers twine.
These are the dishes I keep out all summer, they just go with the kind of rustic lake vibe I try for in our home!
I littered the table with some drift wood pieces, nautical knots and bottles!
I know summer is just sailing by!! 
 I hope you enjoy these last few weeks of the season!

Tablecloth -no idea- it's about 20 years old!
Placemats and napkins - HomeGoods last year
Chargers - World Market - my husband gave them to as a Christmas present several years ago
Plates - Dillards - on clearance about 3 years ago - these were a steal!
Bag of Driftwood - Michaels craft store
Flatware - World Market several years ago- but I believe they still carry it
Napkin Rings - The Peddler, Walnut Creek, Ohio
Nautical cement votive holders - Walnut Creek Cheese
Blue Tumblers - Target last year

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. Ann, this is a beautiful summer scape. I always enjoy a nautical theme, and these blue and white dishes and linens are perfect. Happy sailing through August!

  2. So beautiful Ann. I love how you perfectly coordinated everything, even down to the favors. Very creative. Love the blue and white dishware. Happy August.

  3. I'm loving this, Ann, particularly the stripes and plaids! Such a pleasing mix of patterns and materials. The sailboats you made are so cute! By all means enjoy the rest of summer -- for us summer weather will last until October.

  4. This is too adorable Ann, my favorite part is the sailboats, too cute!! Your guests will want to take a sailboat as well as the salt water taffy tote! Love the simple blue and white with the driftwood and rope accents...unfortunately Summer is sailing away too quickly!
