WELCOME TO CENTERPIECE WEDNESDAY
UNDER DA SEA PART 1
For my Centerpiece I chose to use my Ikea lantern filled with shells and a tall white candle surrounded by two other glass jars filled with sea shells and “King Triton”s Tridents” more pics of this later in the post.
The gorgeous satiny fabric that is flowing all down the center of the table is actually a $5.00 bolt of fabric from Wal-Mart! Yes indeedy cheap it the only way to go! It looks so romantic and kind of sexy don’t you think?
My daughter Madeline took all the photos you see of my table. I love how all the gold forks just shine sitting in the tall glass apothecary jar filled with sea shells. Little Mermaid herself would love to sit down at this table.
My incredible chandelier was purchased at a consignment shop here in Salt Lake and it just adds that sparkle to the room. My hubby installed a dimmer switch so we can light it up or turn it down low for a more romantic feel.
|I actually found these slightly green salad plates after we shot all the pics but I just had to show you my deal! I found these beauties at Tai Pan for only .99 each!! Are they not perfect or what?!|
These amazing little chocolate hazelnut Belgian sea shell nuggets of goodness all wrapped up in a real sea shell are available from my mom..she is a chocolatier. Here blog is eatlotsachocolate.blogspot.com and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to order any all chocolates sea shells you see from this post!
Here is the table in all its splendor!
These blue dishes are also from Tai Pan but they don’t have many left…I wish I could find dinner plates in the pattern and color! Notice the sea horse chocolates sitting in its own shell…they make such a nice gift for your guests.
More of these delectable chocolates sitting ready for me to eat! Actually I have already eaten a few ha ha!
Madeline came up with this idea of putting all the gold forks in the jar. I leave this on my buffet most of the time..it is so fun. By the way….those gold forks are from Big Lots..ha ha years ago!
Gorgeous sea shells available filled with chocolates from eatlotsachocolate.blogspot.com

What a great tablescape. Loved the fabric and loved the place setting, simply beautiful, and your centerpiece was great, loved the lantern and the shells.
Enjoyed seeing all your lovely pictures.
That fabric is a great idea — it suggests sand. Your daughter did a great job with the photos. beautiful table.

Your table is stunning. The gold fabric was a great idea. I will have to think of that. Madeline is quite the photographer – beautiful photos. Thanks for reminding me to put a dimmer on my chandelier. I enjoyed this post.
