    Jenna, I love your mermaid tablescape! The mermaid is charming all by herself, and as the centerpiece to this gorgeous by the sea table she is outstanding. Love the chargers and the shell plates too!

    Great way to sit by the shore and enjoy the sea. Your mermaid is charming and sitting amid the boat and shells centerpiece. I love the building of the tablescape in the photos. Your shell plates and especially the ceramic goblets really accent the place setting. Great Detail! Really enjoy visiting your blog and always look forward to you visiting me! Have a fabulous time by the water!
