my summer tablescape















For my dining room summer tablescape I wanted to keep things simple.  I really love blue and white together, so I wanted to stick with those colors.  I used a couple of pieces I already had, added my new William Sonoma plates that I talked about here, and added our shell collection from our trips to the coast this summer.  I love that these shells were all collected by our family and the majority by Preston and Lyla.  A daily reminder of our summer strolls along the beach.  Simple and Summery :)

    1. Thank you Colleen. I was so excited to find the mirror at Home Goods! I had my eye on the more expensive version for a while, so I was so trilled to find a much more budget friendly version there. Have a wonderful day!

  14. Hi Becky! Thanks for following me on 1camera1mom. I'm now following back! I love these pics! Blue and white are really great together. My graduation dress that I wore under my high school graduation gown was a summer dress of blue and white. My one daughter wants to have a beach theme wedding. I never knew this about her until we both started doing Pinterest. She's almost 12. :)

    I've just begun a Picture Perfect Party Linky every Wednesday on my parenting blog at Amanda's Books and More. It's a blog hop and it's a way for me to feature my favorite 3 pics from the link-up on the following Monday. The theme for this coming Wed. is "textures." I hope you can join!

    The blue and white give your room a very clean and crisp look. And I love the shell collection.
    Have a terrific week.
