Coastal Inspired Table Setting

Coastal Inspired Table Setting

This coastal inspired table setting is fitting for Thanksgiving or any occasion. 2

I love Thanksgiving and look forward to sharing Thanksgiving recipes each year. This year I worked on Thanksgiving content when I was in Maine, and I wanted to include a couple of nods to my hometown in my series of Thanksgiving posts.

The most obvious tribute to Maine in this series of content is the table setting. I picked a nautical blue and white color scheme with hints of yellow for a pop of color, and a touch of silver to add a formal look.

I like to use a table runner instead of a table cloth, I think it is a more modern look. This table runner came from Target, one of my go-to places for affordable tableware.

I also bought some classic white serving dishes and platters. When I buy large serving bowls and platters I like to buy them in white so that way I can mix and match with more colorful pieces that I already own.

When my sister and I were out gathering supplies for this tablescape, she needed to stop at Home Depot, and while we were there I found a blue rope. My friend Paul was able to tie the rope into napkin rings. It helped to pull the coastal look together, and it was far less expensive than buying napkin rings.

The rest of the table décor came from shops in Kennebunkport. The canoe centerpiece and the napkins are from Farm + Table. I was able to buy the starfish at Kitchen Chicks, a café owned by the woman who catered my wedding.

The mercury glass votives were leftover from my sister’s wedding. The weathered stones came from a local beach. I found the silver chargers in a closet at my sister’s house. I am always amazed by what I can find when I look around.

I love how this table setting came together, and I like that it can be used any time of the year.
