    Great post jammed pack with awesome inspiration! I love all of your vignettes/arrangements… but I have to say, the shipwrecked one for Hurricane Season was really creative! Sure hope we don’t have to have any hurricane parties this year! …ugh! All of the food looks divine, and your art work is amazing! 🙂 ~Rhonda

    These are great ideas for June! With the kids being out of school and for me trips with grandkids and vacations planned, this is a great list of projects, meals and desserts.
    So great to have you join us at TOHOT!

    Fun Post! We are loving our June plans. Like your food “extras” suggestions. Linda

  7. Jenna, love all the inspiration! I agree with Rhonda, the shipwreck centerpiece is fabulous…hopefully no hurricanes this year!. Your art is stunning…you are one talented lady!

  8. Oh my, so many ways to celebrate June! It is also my daughter’s birthday! The shipwrecked centerpiece is so much fun! I have a big old metal base of a boat I use to ice down party drinks, you have given me an idea for a new way to display and use it! I just love going through your tablescapes! Have a great June…and the rest of the summer, too!

  9. Wow Wow Wow Jenna! So many creative ideas and tons of inspiration in this post. Love that shipwreck centerpiece! I thought I was all set with that red snapper. Then the steak with those onion rings got my attention. But then the lobster tempura did me in. I will have to try to make that! Thanks for all these great ideas!

  11. Wow…you gave us a lot of inspiration for the month of June….and what a great snapper he caught!
    Love those “great catch” cupcakes! Have a great month of June and a great weekend!

  12. Mary says:

    Jenna, I had to chuckle at your shipwreck centerpiece…I hope hurricane season is not as active as they’re predicting! I can’t believe June has arrived, it’ll be Independence Day before we know it! Thanks for the inspiration, I hope the fishermen in your family reel in “the big one” this weekend 🙂

    Orange glazed shrimp and scallops sounds amazing and can comfort me while I think of the hurricanes I fear will be visiting us this year!

  14. janetlea62 says:

    Looks like a whole lot of fun and great food! Now I want to go to the beach!

  15. lulu says:

    I got a real kick out of your shipwreck centerpiece. That is going to be inspiration for something in my future. The snapper was quite a catch and I’m betting it provided some good eating.

  16. Your recipes look awesome! Making me hungry. Visiting form Talented Tuesday party.
