Dressed for the Beach Party

Don't you just love going to the beach! This party is to show off your best beach attire. So grab your hat and sunglasses for some bright sunny colors. The place setting is dressed for the beach party. The bright pink straw charger has been turned upside down replicating a straw hat with a pink gingham bow. The plate is created in the shape of a T-Shirt.

This picture has one of the T-Shirt plates with a bright pink background with cute prints of colorful flip-flops. Will the place setting match your outfit?

Would you rather have an bright green T-Shirt plate to match your
green bag and flip-flops?

I can always seat you at the bright orange T-Shirt plate. You are probably enjoying the flickering candle in the red votive. I hope you noticed each plate has a different color votive holder. You may be surprised that these are flame less votives which I picked up at Marshall's.

I will be serving you salad on the flip-flop side plate. Each one of the side plates is different and coordinates with the colorful print on the T-Shirt plate. Are you having trouble deciding whether to coordinate your outfit or go to a different color for your place to sit?

This place setting has a striped place mat showing the colors in the plates. The tablecloth is a shade of sand for the beach. The orange flatware has a casual shape but a hot color. The napkin and straw charger are such a bright shade of pink you may have to wear your sun glasses. I pulled the napkin through the woven napkin ring to fan into a flower.

Here's a beach bag full of pink potted roses. Does the print on the bag look like what your wearing and you brought to the beach? It is being held by a pastel colored beach chair on a white leafy cake stand.

If your feet need a pick-me-up, these bright pink striped flip-flops are just the thing. Hopefully, they will look great will the beach bag.

I will write your name on your place card when you pick where you want to sit. The striped place mat and place card are there to pick-up the beach party colors. Go ahead and sit down, I am stirring up a cool pitcher of pink lemonade. We will raise our flip-flop glasses to a swinging beach bash.

Another guest is sitting the green beach chair. Beau is dressed for a swim in his striped beach trunks and yellow visor. He has brought the red crab for us to eat or pet.

He is showing you a pink and white striped shirt. He thinks you would look great in it.

Our dashing guest in the pink beach chair is Bing.
He has worn a charming one piece striped swimsuit.

Bing is hoping to get in a game of beach ball with you before or after we eat. I hope you are ready for a vigorous game for he thinks of himself as a great athlete.

He really is a show off in those orange flip-flops. He disagrees with Beau and thinks you should try the green striped shirt. What ever you wear, hope you have a beach party blast.

Last look at July 4th

4th of July photos......
I was wanting to take a few more photos of my tablescape for the 4th. These were taken with a different camera. I moved the elf to pose on the teapot.

This is a close-up of the America sign, I wanted a good view of the flag and stars.

Here's a photo of the large elf's face with the patriot ribbon in the background.

Another is of the trio of elves, which really shows off their expressions

The girl elf below has even the sequins on her skirt showing their sparkle.

I love proud look and stance of this girl elf. She to show how glad she is to hold the flag.

A photo of the flag china, flatware and napkin givens a shot of all the designs together.

I feel I could reach in a pick up the cup to give a toast to our country!

This is just a touch of our country!
