Mirage salad plates.
The tropical fish tumblers managed to jump into my cart at the VOA a week or so later.
Various tropical fish and seashells seemed to be everywhere over the last week or two.
I even made a "mock" aquarium out of an old rectangular vase that I had in my stash of vases. I was going to use this aquarium as a centerpiece before I found the flip-flops.
In the end the tablescape evolved into the table pictured below.
The flatware was purchased new from the HomeGoods store for $12.99 for the 20 piece set with a silverware caddy.
The place mats are a thrift store find as are the dinner plates, salad plates, glasses, and napkins.
The table cover is a beach mat that was bought at Big Lots at 90% off many years ago. It fit the table perfectly!
There were light houses and coral posed next to the lanterns.
More colorful tropical fish and a lot more scatter had been placed around the table.
Looks a bit cluttered doesn't it? I removed and replaced a little at a time.
Many of the unused items were placed on the shelves (cluttering them up) with the other beach and nautical stuff that I have collected over the years.
As always - thrift on ladies, thrift on.
These are the parties I like to link to:
