The plates were bargains. The only one I paid full price for are the blue Abigail dinner plates. The salad plates with shells were $1 each from a clearance table at TJ Maxx. The white St. Helena plate chargers were originally $14.95 each but they were on clearance at Z Gallerie for $2.89 each. Too bad they only had 6 left but they had enough of the cream ones so I bought 8 of those. I would have bought all the white ones to sell in my booth if they had more.
I used 2 types of flatware, a blue one with bubbles and another almost coral in color. I also used 2 types of napkins, plain coral and printed blue with sea shells. The napkin rings are blue shells with fish, starfish and a sand dollar. They feel like clay. I had this shell box that I was selling in the booth. I brought it home when I decided to do a beachy themed table. First, I just laid it on the table with the lid closed and then I decided to add some pearl and coral jewelry and make it look like a treasure chest.
It was so hot outside, my candles melted before I could even light them, lol. I bought the net with shells from Big Lots about 2 years ago.
I am glad he bought it because I wouldn't even if I like it because I think it is expensive. I am cheap, lol. Too bad the Big Lots store here closed. I enjoyed buying cheap stuff from there.
The 2 opaque candles with shells were from Cozumel.
