Sea Inspired Father's Day Table

Hello sweet friends !

Oh my, Father's Day is just around the corner, how time just flies !

This table is set for seven, so one upper place is with some serving pieces of my mother's Limoges beautiful china she gifted me several years ago. I paired it with my MIL's antique dinner plates cause I wanted to be sort of manly, not so very matched, I mean. 

Here I also placed as centerpiece the gorgeous French 'Art Nouveau' piece that was from my Father in law's home, so who knows how old it is ! The great part is that it matches perfectly with the aqua color of the Limoges dishes.

This tablescape is also my 'Summer' collaboration, taking advantage of all the seashells here.

Wishing all the FATHERS in your families a wonderful and blessed Sunday.

                                    " HAPPY FATHER'S DAY "

My "FATHER'S DAY 2018," Sea inspired Summer tablescape for this Sunday celebration.
I used my 'surfside' chargers for this setting, to enhance this mainly aqua Sea Summer table for 'Father's Day.'

 The sea inspiration came specially from the antique French piece Art Nuovo in 'aqua' with all the seashells, besides the fact that it matches perfectly the 'aqua' on the 'French-Limoges' dishes my mom gave me several years ago...and the placemats.

I paired it with my Mil's antique dinner plate so not to do a 'matchy-matchy' manly table spread.

This gorgeous antique centerpiece came from my FIL's family and it's French Art Nuovo or earlier. 

Hubby's mother left it to us because the initials are like ours, "C-A."

I spread natural seashells all around the table. The 'Spondylus' bowl is for the hot sauce.

The natural seashell is for the delish 'Coquille St. Jackes,' which is always a favorite of Mr. Living... and all of us, of course.

Serving pieces from the Limoges china mother gifted us.
A shell and wood serving spoon.
The Spanish wine is a "Mar de Frades" which is perfect as it means the "Sea of Frades."

The stems are 'Mexican hand blown' from many years ago.

Up front a shell shaped spoon for the entrance, the 'Coquille St Jacques.'

The friends that visited my last post, where I explained how I made these placemats and runner from material left over from the 'Toile' dining chairs and I lined them with this pretty brocade which fortunately has aqua in the pattern; perfect for the aqua "Limoge" china and antique French heirloom centerpiece ! 

The coffee station was set with my special WWII, 'German-Bavaria'  tea, or coffee set in this case.

Thank you for your generous comments dear friends, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great partiea.
