The governor of South Carolina has reopened the boat ramps! I’m hoping the beaches and parks will be next. On honor of that hope, and my longing to lounge on the sunny South Carolina Lowcountry beaches, I created a Sea Island Tablescape. I wanted this scape to be light, fun, and airy.
In case you’re wondering where the Sea Islands are, here’s a definition from Wikipedia and a map:
The Sea Islands are a chain of tidal and barrier islands on the Atlantic Ocean coast of the Southeastern United States. Numbering over 100, they are located between the mouths of the Santee and St. Johns Rivers along the coast of the US states of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
The genesis of my Sea Island Tablescape is a hand painted Palmetto tree salad plate layered on top of a Martha Stewart Holiday Pinecone dinner plate. The flatware is Onieda Golden Juilliard.
I made these tie-dye napkins in 2019 for a Boho Valentine Napkins and Rings post. Tie-dye reminds of those tank tops you can buy at any sun-washed beach store along the Atlantic coast.
I embellished each plate with a Sand Fiddler Crab Coastal Christmas Tree Ornament. You can buy your own here.
I’ve had the wooden “Beach” sign for a long time and use it every year. The turtle and fish figurines held scented chips originally, which fell out every time I moved them. Now I keep the turtle and fish empty. The sea shell garland came from Oriental Trading.
The little octopus is part of my Coastal Piano Scape With Dough Ornaments post from last summer. I enjoy getting use out of the things I make. I placed a dough ornament beside each place setting.
I filled the blue Mason jars with the most vibrant grocery store flowers I could find in the current situation. The runner was originally made for an Island Escape Madras Plaid Coffee Table vignette. The crochet runner is actually a set of curtain tiers.
I bought these gorgeous goblets at a thrift store. I buy sets of goblets because they impress my youngest child. These glasses are heavy and seem to be high quality.
I hope you enjoyed my Sea Island Tablescape, and I hope you can come down and see us sometime when this virus is gone!
