Tidal Tablescape

It is most definitely fall in Georgia, and I absolutely love the weather and the stunning blue skies. It has been weeks of gorgeous weather, and I am soaking it up before it gets cold. This is the time I crave being at the beach and eating alfresco every meal.  Growing up in Florida, I have a genuine appreciation for the beach in all seasons, and fall may be the best. 

With all that in mind, how about a trip to the coast for a lovely friend's dinner?  Set on a beautiful dock in Pawleys Island, this meal would be a true nod to the fabulous seafood available at the coast and using all the stunning surroundings. The stunning mix of the green landscape, the blue water, and the stunning blue sky all mixed in with the history of a small yet magical island. That is precisely what I have for you today with our Pawleys Tidal Tablescape

My darling friend Anna Louise Dixon and I organized this dinner on the dock of a dear friend of the Dixon family. As you walk out to the dock and the set table, you get to soak in the magic of the South Carolina coast. This was my first trip for me to Pawleys, but I have craved to return ever since. There is something pure magic about Pawleys and its nod to the past. I wrote all about my trip to Pawleys and the impression it made on me.  I am telling you, if you have not visited you must add it to your list.  It is truly so amazing!

The table was set with beautiful linens from Flying Sheep, more specifically, the Blue Dots tablecloth and the Ava Napkin in blue. This was my first Flying Sheep experience, and it will not be the last.  Their linens are stunning, but the napkins are next level. The details honestly can not be beaten!

Once the linens were set, I mixed in my favorite tortoise chargers from K Sweigart Collection and antique dishes from my home and topped it off with custom menus from Sweet Caroline Designs.  I will share more about these Friday, but I can tell you that Caroline is my go-to when I need a custom piece of stationery.  Her designs are next-level fabulous, and she always gives me exactly what I ask for and more. I sent her my mood board, and she created the perfect stationery pieces.  

The dishes we used combine two patterns I collect, Vista Alegre Rabun Blue + Furnivals Quail in blue. I found these fantastic tortoise wine glasses at a vintage shop in the area, along with the matching tortoise bowl.  It could not have been more perfect as they were a perfect addition. The smaller blue stemless wine glasses are from Vietri, and I used those for water.  I love to mix glassware as the colors and patterns truly compliment a tablescape. 

I have set a lot of tables and in a lot of locations.  This one was different, it was magical.  It combined so many things I love and that fill my love bucket.  First of all the location.  I am a coastal girl and always will be.  I also love mixing old and new items and this table is a perfect example.  Also, entertaining and spending time with others really feeds my soul, and this trip was so good for so many reasons. 

I will have details tomorrow and Thursday on our dresses, the yummiest cocktail, and more.

I hope your Tuesday is filled with joy!
