A Beachy & Summery Tablescape

G'day dear friends and welcome to NatashainOz.com!

I am having such a great time posting and reading blogs....Big Al, Maddy and Mr Attorney all think that I am addicted to blogging! Maybe I am .....yes...I definitely am!



I am in awe of the amazing things that people can do, the stunning pictures that people take and the endless creativity of the talented bloggers from all around the world. I just love looking at the blog Between Naps on the Porch and today I am taking part in Tablescape Thursday. Today I had my parents and sister over for a light lunch and they kindly helped me design and execute my very first tablescaping attempt. What fun we had- I  even had some input from my dad who isn't even normally into this kind of thing at all. So, here is my Beachy and Summery luncheon tablescape!










 

 





 

 

 




Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope you will stop by and say g'day again soon.

Best wishes,
Natasha In Oz

  4. Welcome to TT!

    What a calm, cool looking table! You can never go wrong with pink & green in my book. :D
    I like the little touch of a different sea shell at each place setting, too.


    I've been too sick with the flu to participate this week but I hope to see you & I both at next week's gathering.

  9. Oh what a lovely tablescape. I really love the use of the palm leafs as the centerpiece. Such a great idea and so dramatic. Your wicker placemats and coasters along with all the gorgeous shells are so pretty against the dark wood of the table. Your china is beautiful. I think for your first TT you have really created a beautiful and professionally done table. Love it.. Hugs, Marty

  12. You did a great job for your first attempt. It was my second week playing along, and I am in such awe of the tables I'm seeing. It is nice to see something different than our fall colors. I love the sea and have a house full of shells and palms, even though I'm not near an ocean. You table really appeals to me.

  13. This is one of my favorite color combinations! I think the best part is that it was a fun "group" effort. I love your quote in your banner--very true!

It is so much fun and I look forward to logging on each Thursday and seeing what all these awesome bloggers have come up with each week! Love the summer table you did!

  21. Some great ideas here; loved your all of your uses of the shells! YES, I was wondering what planet you were from when you said a Spring table, Ha!

  22. Your table is absolutly beautiful. Love the hot pink napkins and the seashells. So pretty. Tablescaping is so much fun and ADDICTING! Everywhere I go now, even if it's just to the grocery store or drug store, I'm on the lookout for anything that might make a cute tablescape. I think my husband thinks I am a little coo coo, but that's okay with me! Congratulations on your first and very beautiful tablescape. Can't wait to see what you do next time.
