A Mermaid Themed Tablescape.


It's Thursday again, my favorite blogging day. Why? That's because I get to play with my dishes and table. Thanks to Susan for hosting. You should make it a point to visit her at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ and her participants and see the many creative tables circulating in Blogland today.
For Marty's spring cloche party, I showed you the mermaid cloche that I created for my granddaughter who is now visiting. You got a glimpse of the tablescape and I promised I would show the whole thing today so, without further ado, here it is!

The plates are from TJ Maxx. When I saw them, I thought the colors will be perfect to use by the poolside because they will match the color of the water.

I grew that pineapple plant, that is sitting on the plant pedestal, by just cutting the top of a pineapple fruit and laying it on the soil. Amazing how much it has grown since!



The camellia buds have now all opened since I took this picture and they are beautiful. Now, the azaleas are budding. Aaaahhh! I just love spring!







My sister gave me the 2 fish trays along with 2 different sizes of matching shell trays (not on the table). Thanks atsi, I love them!
Rather than wrapping the napkins with a napkin ring, I just laid the shell napkin rings on top of a shell plate on the napkin.


A view of the raised vegetable and herb garden. The rosemary is still blooming.








I am even showing you the bad view, lol. We should really take down that hose reel because the hose that we use is in the brown box below. Have you ever seen those hose boxes? They are so neat. After watering the plants, just flip a lever and the box will reel the hose in automatically by itself. It's really a big help when you have a 150 ft. long hose. We have 3 of them around the yard.



My flatware matches my frame. Love the bubble look!
A mermaid tea light candle holder and starfish S & P shakers are also shown below.
Do you see how much higher we are situated than the neighbors' houses?

Thanks Susan, for letting us play on our tables again.
And thanks everyone for coming by for a visit!
