Ahoy! (T)

Ahoy he calls out to the ship that is coming in!

It's time for a quick lunch while the ship is restocked for their next voyage!

  I decided to start using my red white and blue linens and tableware.  
I mentioned in my previous post about the lighthouse that I have been collecting nautical things for some time.  I went down to the lower level guest room and borrowed a few pieces for today's tablescape.

 I love to mix patterns and textures and paisley is great with so many things.  I used an oversized tea towel as an overlay.  The red woven charges came from Pier 1 at lest 5 yrs. ago, stripe dishes from One King's Lane, and the nautical knot dishes from Pottery Barn.  

 The napkin rings are from Sur La Table and the napkins are by TAG

I love how this tea towel is accented with stripes and sailing ships!
I used this in a previous tablescapes which is one of my favorites you can see "here" called Seashells Stripes and Sailboats

I like a simple centerpiece I can remove if needed. The galvanized copper edged star tray came from a local store.  I researched the star after I purchased it but fondly found them available in sets of 5 graduated pieces if you ordered on line.  I was glad I found it being sold individually.

Time to dine!
Happy first day of summer!
