After a quick trip to Southern California the pressure was on, I came home and needed to get the house decorated in a day to host a spontaneous little gathering, just the impetus I needed.
With all of the time we’ve spent on beaches lately, I decided to do a Silver Seas theme for the holiday table, sort of a frosted fantasy look at what you might find beach combing after a winter storm.
Mr. Splendid brought home some craggy, weathered branches from the islands,
the perfect frame work to lay down the center of the table.
White Kolache plants framed with evergreens in mercury glass pots anchor the display.
Capiz shells replicate the lapping sea.
White pebbles and rough crystals create a foundation.
I filled these pale blue glasses with tea lights and beach glass, I think they’ll look so pretty when they are lit and you can see the candle light through the colored glass.
Sparkly pine cone balls add depth and a little bit of earthiness to the mix.
Looks like one of my friends littered the scene with this champagne cork and basket, makes you think someone enjoyed a nice party on a passing yacht… love it!
I had silver leafed these scallop shells years ago when I did a similar scene. The pieces of driftwood are spray painted silver.
A variety of stars add salt and sparkle.
Larger shells nestled into the spread for texture.
Here’s an aerial views of the flotsam and jetsam.
I hope you are having some fun creating a little magic in your abode.
