Sea Inspired Luncheon Table

 
Hello dear friends!

Just got back from our 14 day visit to our DD Alexandra who came from Spain with her baby Maxima and husband for a short visit. Along with dear DD Sofie and her family, who live in the city of Guayaquil three hours away too. 
We have enjoyed some amazing time together!

We went to the beach, we had great sea food and in all we spent some awesome time together... a super vacation, along with Mr. Living, of course, lol..

I'm making a luncheon for four and my inspiration was definitely the Sea, the beautiful Sea. I'm serving Shrimp ceviche in the shell bowls, Fish Escabeche which is like a fish stew and it's wonderful, a favorite of all.
Served with rice and salad.

Hope you are all having a great summer and that you also got a chance to hit the beach sometime.

That said, here it is.

 
 
Two plate settings are formed like this one starting with a straw placemat, a 'Surfside' charger, Big white dinner plate, Enoch Wedgwood smaller dinner plate, porcelain lemon salad plates and finished off with a shell shaped bowl for 'Shrimp-Ceviche.'
 
 

 
I arranged the side buffet with all white and my Meissen teapot with vessels along with other Noritake white pieces.




After lunch we will have coffee or tea with dessert.

 

Always blue and white. 

I also placed on the center of the bare table a blue striped runner, to set the other two places.

Mother of Pearl serving spoon. 




 

 

I love shells and their lovely shapes.
 
I brought some this time from the beach too and here is my centerpiece all done up on my small wooden bowl.

Up front blue fish S&P shakers.

 



At your right that pretty 'Spondylus' shell with pedestal is for the hot sauce and a 'Mother of Pearl' spoon.


Hope you liked my Sea inspired tablescape for our luncheon tomorrow.

Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you so make my day!

Thanking the gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

I will be partying here:

Oh Fabby, this is so beautiful. Love your setting and your pretty beachy accessories.
The starfish are so cute! This makes for a lovely table to sit down and enjoy the seascape. I hope you share at our link party, Dishing it & Digging It on Sunday. xo

You are one talented tabletop stylist! This is wonderful!

Pondside said...

Another beautiful table! You are so good with bringing your inspiration to life, Fabby. What I love is how cool and elegant it all looks.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Fabby,
Oh, I sure liked your table but I'm feeling kind of sad for reading that those 2 weeks are already gone.
How precious such family time is and it kind of slips through our fingers, like fine sand.
Perfect idea for continuing at home in with the sea inspired setting...
Hugs,
Mariette

A lovely tablescape, as usual, Fabby! But that menu is making my mouth water. I can imagine what a great time you had with the whole family...Christine

Jann Olson said...

Very beautiful Fabby! A sea inspired tablescape is so soothing. We are headed to the ocean this week. I can't wait! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann

Jeannie Marie said...

I love your tablescape! I live beside the sea and often use shells and coral and other sea inspired decorations. When I lived in the heart of America, in Ohio, I often wanted to decorate with them so now take full advantage! You made a lovely table!

Hi, Fabby
What a stunning tablescape. I love the butterfly dishes, they are beautiful and a great touch to the table. Thank you for linking up at Dishing it and Digging it link party. Love having you.

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

What a pretty setting, Fabby! The colors are so soothing; and your shell collection is amazing. Your tablescape really brings in the elements of the sea and pretty beaches!

Rosemary and Thyme said...

It sounds like you have having a wonderful summer Fabby. What can be better than to have your family with you. That is such a blessing.

Your sea inspired meal sounds fabulous. A fun and savory meal for sure. I love ceviche. Especially the shrimp one.

Enjoy the rest of your summer querida amiga.

Habrazos desde NJ.

Janet

Marie said...

It looks so pretty! I love the seaside theme.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

What a gorgeous tgablescape, Fabby. I am so glad you were able to spend some quality time with your family. You must miss them so much.

Have a wonderful remainder-of-summer. It is just passing much too quickly - though it is so HOT that it isn't going fast enough some days, haha.

Hugs! ♥♥♥

Fabby I just love that teapot you have with the ships on it! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

Lady of the Manor said...

Your table is gorgeous and the meal sounds delicious!! I'm so glad you were able to spend family time, and lucky you, at the beach! We've been busy here at home with the new house. Hopefully we'll be ready to move in about a month. I could sure use some time at the beach...maybe next year! Have a wonderful week, my friend! Zenda

Jeanne said...

Hello Fabby, I have always loved a lovely table setting and you do it like art. The shell collection is so pretty and makes the perfect theme for your tablescape. The white

bird on the platter caught my eye on your buffet. The blue fish S&P add so much to your tablescape. Beautiful in every way.

How wonderful to be with your family for a gathering of loved ones. It means so much to be with our darling children.
xo, Jeanne

Sylvia said...

Fabby, Love the blue and white dishes. The bird on the oval platter on the all white set up. Is the bird something separate? It looks cute. Sylvia D.

Pat Cantwell said...

Fabby,
Gorgeous Sea Inspired Tablescape, dear friend!
I so~o~o enjoyed seeing the photos of you and your lovely Grand Girl on Face Book!
The side buffet with all the white china has me swooning!
So elegantly displayed!
Fondly,
Pat
P.S. Thank you for your kind comment and sweet visit today!

Villrose said...

Do I love a sea inspired tablescape? Sea shells have beautiful shapes. I use them on top of flowerpots along with my stone collection...
Good to hear you have had a lovely vacation :) So have I. First a week in Spain (Mallorca), as a matter of fact, with my family, and then lazy days in my garden and minor trips.

Maria Elena said...

Gorgeous tablescape, Fabby! Love every detail. I am so glad you got to spend a nice vacation time with your family. I bet your little granddaughter is getting so big. :) Have a wonderful Sunday! Maria

How did I miss this lovely coastal table? I am a huge fan of any type of sea-themed decor, tables in particular, and this one is just lovely.
