    Oh, how I wish I had seen those crabby plates and bowls – we would adore those for crab dinners at our house. Your setting of course is perfect and makes such an exquisite back drop! Wish I were sitting there with you right now. What a perfect table!

    Very pretty, Jenna, and I love the starfish holding the napkins down. You know what? I have never been to a Homegoods store…You’re making me want to go check it out! Gorgeous, fun, table, as always!

    Jenna, this is my new favorite tablescape. It was put together with an artist’s eye for color and details. Everything is gorgeous, starting with the orange/blue colors and ending with the netting and starfish. You have captured summer on the Coast.

    Love your tablescapes! Do you live here? I live in the country and long for a beach view.

  12. How cute is this! Love the crabby dishes and the fish net wound throughout. Perfect colors by the ocean. Looks like it’s time for a cocktail!

  13. Mary says:

    No one would feel crabby dining at your table Jenna! I love your painted chargers revealed at your table along with those cute clothespins! Your orange polka dots and blue stripes make for the perfect linens for dining by the blue gulf waters or ocean sunset!

    What fun colors! I am now craving the crab and lobster salad we had on Coronado Island last month. What a beautiful setting you have. Just perfect for this tablescape!

  15. Lori says:

    Such a fun and colourful table! I love the two-person setting and that you used the rest of the table to full advantage, decorating all the spaces. Looks terrific! And what a view you have…

  16. Cute, cute, cute! And a perfect backdrop!
