A Bowl Full of Shells

 Today I want to show you my summer tablescape with a lot of sea shells!  I am a little behind on this but it is still summer, right?

I made this tablescape with things that I already had around the house.

I started with some of my favorite Pottery Barn glass candle holders and added a candle and some lovely sea shells.

Then I added sliver chargers, plates, bowls, wine glasses and napkins with rings.

I just wanted to keep it simple!

For extra pizzazz, I added a little starfish in each wine glass.  I think that looks cute, what do you think?

I also added a couple of shells to each bowl, just for fun!

Here is a picture of all the bowls.  I made each one a little different.

I even changed up my other little table in my dinning room.

I used this summery plate to add color and it matches my napkins.

I even snuck in this cute little shell that I picked up at a garage sale for 50 cents.

I am borrowing these flowers from my master bedroom and put them in a vase that I bought at a garage sale  for $3 and spray painted sliver.
