Now for my creation... I wanted to create a casual yet sophisticated Summer beach-inspired table... here's what I came up with.

I staged the whole thing on my front porch because I thought my blue house would make a nice backdrop.

When I think beachy, I think crystal blues, lots of glass, white sheets blowing in the wind, weathered wood... don't you just want to go there right now?

Awesome place card idea! Little dish filled with moss and a card. This is such a pretty beach party table idea! entirelyeventfuld... #party #placecard #tablesetting

I used my fine china (for the sophistication) but I didn't press the napkins (for the casual).

That weathered wood you see is actually paper! Yep, paper!

I created the chevron burlap napkin rings with printed burlap ribbon wrapped and pinned around the napkins.

For the centerpiece I used a blue tray and a great big apothecary jar filled with shells. Then I surrounded it with bottles of sparkling strawberry beverage. Have you ever thought of using drinks for a pop of color?


The placecards might just be my favorite things ever! I filled little hobnail glasses from IKEA with moss and stuck some cards that I designed and printed on cardstock in there. Placecards are formal but I did them in a very casual way.

I hope y'all appreciate my ghost chairs more than my husband does. I love them! And I really love them as part of this arrangement.


The moss reminds me of the soft, short grass that grows near the beach in Southern California. I love the lush green and the texture.


I tried to create a light, flowy feeling.

What would it be without a vintage find or two? I love these candle sticks! I found them treasure hunting a couple years ago.

Milk glass water cup (which are actually from IKEA) and blue striped paper straws bring a casual aire to the table. I like to keep it fresh and a little playful :)
