Surf, Sand, Shells, and Swim

"Sea of Love" by
Phil Phillips.(1959)
is the theme of this table setting.
From a sandy place far away we are treated to a table watched over by a pair of frogs. They were designed by Debby Lilly. 
The boy frog watches the beach for sharks thru his binoculars.
Boy and girl frogs have their sailboat near
so they can fish, find lobsters, or just
watch the seabirds.
A flickering candle is a small basket gives them light as darkness falls.

The lobster trap is covered with shells and nets from a earlier fishing trip.
The girl frog is safety conscience wearing her own life preserver. 
The boy is so concerned about distance threats he barely sees his female companion.

With a white place plate the blue shelled dish is
from Borallo Pinheiro.
Two close ups show the detail of the pattern. 

Here the over view shows the plate mat, plates, silver, and napkins.
A blue bottle also has a candle to help with the beach fun.
The view from the back shows the sea grass and shells on the beach.

The Silverware is Oneida Deluxe with a shell pattern.
The seagull just has fun watching the frogs.
This overview shows all the components in one photo 

As the frogs keep looking into the distance, they keep wondering where did our waiter go? The life challenges of being a frog on the beach.
