Tablescapes, So Many Fish in the Sea!


Welcome Summer!

It’s time to get out all your summertime things

and set a table for all the fun summer can bring!





Celebrate & Decorate’s Chloe has gathered some fantastic inspiration for you!

Join the fun all week long as we “celebrate & decorate” tables for summer!





If it’s summer, you know where I always want to be





On the porch of the beach house near the deep blue sea





We have such fun at this table where we all love to dine





It’s a perfect table for 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 we’ve even sat nine!





The conversation often includes fish





So it’s fitting each place is set with a fish dish!




This table setting is full of coastal features




Banana leaf palms, coconuts, sea shells and all kinds of fishy creatures!





Wine glasses painted with palms, starfish, flip flops and floats





It’s quiet today but the water soon will be full of passing boats





Lots of blue hues and a little dose of green





A tropical table with a touch of serene…





Is there anything better than a beachy summer scene?

    Jenna, I love your table runner! Your banana leaf palms make the perfect foundation down the middle of your table for your collection of floats, shells and kissing fish! Adorable fish plates and napkin rings too and perfect for your coastal home! I know your family and guests love to see your creative tables as well as your culinary creations! Happy to be hopping along with you this week. ♥

    Jenna, I’m loving your coastal tablescape with so many fish in the sea! Banana leaf palms as a runner are so clever and the blue and green hues are serene and inviting. Your rhymes are always enjoyable. Your hand painted pillows, platter, and wine glasses showcase your amazing talent.
    How fun it would be sitting there with you.

  3. Rita C. says:

    Love it, Jenna! What an idyllic setting, and your furniture is holding up very well! Love the elements you used for the tablescape too. Very summery!

  4. Jenna, how fun that you get to set up a beach tablescape actually at the beach! The runner is so perfect with its banana palm leaves as a base for your wonderful collection of beachy items. The fish plates are so cute as are your painted stemware and the seashell forks! Your talents are always amazing and I know your beach home provides so much joy with your family.

    Just a side note, our son spent Monday and Tuesday filming a yacht at Orange Beach. He said the weather was perfect!

    • Oh fun, I can’t wait to get back there, I have some things this week and weekend then I’m headed South for at least 2 weeks, can’t wait! I set this table when I was there for a week after Easter, and I am looking forward to a family Memorial Day weekend with all the kids. Thanks Pam, I wish we could have this glorious weather all summer!!

  7. Cute, cute! Looks like an ocean of fun.

  8. CoziNest says:

    Jenna, what a cheerful table! I love love love the fish plates! And you are quite the poet. Hugs from Fairhope!

  9. Give me open water, a table set in blue and images of fish and sea things and I’m the happiest woman in the world. (Good food is nice, but not a requirement!)

  10. Cecilia says:

    What a blessing to set your fun coastal table by the waterfront! It is a pleasure to be joining you this week! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    Jenna, I love your beautiful Summer table at your home at the beach. Of course it goes without saying that I love your poetry too. The fish plates are so cute, and I adore all the centerpiece details. You have more patience than I when it comes to DIY, and your forks are so stinkin’ cute.
    You have just the right amount of green to go with your blues….and where did you get those cute little flip-flops? Adorable! The hand painted stemware are so perfect for your tablescape. I love blog hopping with you as you give me inspiration beyond my capabilities. Hugs dear friend.

    • Thank you Kari, the flip flops are a painted wooden ornament from Hobby Lobby I think! I am a sucker for coastal or beach themed knick knacks…and plates, oh goodness I have a gazillion beachy plates…an addiction for sure!

  12. Sandra Garth says:

    Banana Leaf Palms are popping up all over the place and they scream summer fun! I’m always captivated by the few from your porch and you’ve paired the theme perfectly with your surroundings. Such fun to be blog hopping with you again!

  13. Linda says:

    Jenna, your table is so you. Fresh, coastal , whimsical and fun. Love the palm leaves down the center. The fishies are darling. A lovely centerpiece that pops. The fish plates and napkin rings are so cute. Your special talent of painting the stemware is amazing. Truly a fun table to sit down and enjoy the views.

    Love your summer table and those beautiful colors!! 💚💙

  15. Jill Kuhn says:

    I need to make a trip to Pier 1, love all your fish decor!! 🐠🐟🐬

  16. Debbee says:

    Jenna, I love how you mixed the coastal blues with the green accents for a serene zen feeling. I do confess to being envious of that incredible setting overlooking the water! So many fun and cute details to enjoy on the table. If I close my eyes and click my heels together… nope, it’s still Pittsburgh!

  17. Benita says:

    Jenna, I love your table setting! I also love that you get to sit here and look out over the water! Those seashell utensils are just too cute and I love your theme!! The blues and greens look so pretty together! Hugs!

  18. Carol says:

    Jenna, love all the fish plates. What a fun theme. The napkins are really nice too. What a beautiful spot to enjoy a meal with friends and family.

  19. Cyndi Raines says:

    Love anything with a beach theme, great job! Still want to make your beach silverware one day, I think they are the greatest! 🐚🐳🐟🐠

  20. Chloe Crabtree says:

    You are always so creative, I love your little Dr. Seuss-like story! You know I also love your summertime setting. Anytime you can be by the water, I say, “BE BY THE WATER”! Then comes your tablescape which is a perfect welcome to summer for your near the water location. The fish dishes, fish napkin rings and of course your custom painted wine glasses all make for a fun summery table!

    • Thank you Chloe, oh how we love our little slice of paradise! And THANK YOU for keeping the hops going, I know it really inspires all of us to create wonderful eye candy and beautiful tables!

  21. Marsha says:

    The deep blue sea table by the deep blue sea. What a lovely setting and a perfect table among the water’s edge. Your selection of pieces is like looking at art. I love how to worked it into the table setting and into a table runner. So beautiful to look at each piece and all together. Such a lovely place to be!

  22. Sarah Anderson says:

    Jenna, what fun to have a coast home for relaxing by the deep blue sea. I know you love entertaining family and friends at that waterside table. Your fish plates and all the details make a perfect setting for lunch or dinner out on your deck. I always enjoy your creative tables and also the clever rhymes as text. Happy days!

    • Thank you Sarah, we have had this little slice of paradise since 1986, my children grew up coming here all year long and now it’s so much fun to watch my grandchildren enjoy it. Even the 3 year old asks “when are we going to beach mommy?” almost everyday!

  23. thefrenchhutch says:

    Jenna, I just love all the fun things sea related to set your table at the beach house. Cute theme with the table runner and sea creatures. A fish for each setting suits the occasion and I can only imagine the fish talk. I would be the same, if I had a house by the deep blue sea I’ll give one one guess where you’d find me……..

  24. Kitty says:

    Such a perfect rhyme for your pretty table, Jenna! Wish I could join you at your setting…oh, if only I lived closer!! Those forks are darling, and your centerpiece is so fitting. Enjoy your happy place!

  25. Jenna, I love it all! The fish plates the …everything! It all makes me smile. It is a dream of mine to live by the water and I drifted into a daydream as I looked through the photos of your lovely tablescape. It’s a pleasure to be on the tablescape hop with you. Hugs

  26. Ann Krucek says:

    Nothing too fishy here!! Just a fabulous summer table!! I love all the great coastal pieces you have used here to create a fun and oh, so relaxing table. From the fish plates, the banana palms, and the sea grass chargers- it all looks wonderful. It is always a spectacular surprise to see what you create during each hop! Thanks Jenna!!!

  27. Rebecca says:

    Jenna, what a treat it must be to have a beach house to enjoy the summer! I love your blue and green color scheme and all the fish accents. Your hand made items give your tables so much personality. I love the embellished flatware, painted wine glasses, and the pillows, coasters, & cutting board that highlight your artwork. I also adore your striped napkins, rattan placemats and the banana palm table runner. It’s always a pleasure hopping with you. Happy (almost) Summer!

  28. Kim Young -KnockitOffKim says:

    Jenna, I love your coastal-inspired table, especially in such a beautiful setting! The fish plates are perfect, of course, but my favorite element is probably your DIY seashell flatware – such a brilliant idea! It’s always so much fun hopping with you and seeing what you come up with.. I can see why this is your happy place! Happy (almost) summer!

  29. Amber says:

    So so serene, creative and beautiful! I am already in a beach mood and I am looking forward to our vacation later this summer. How lucky you are to have such beautiful beachy views!

    I love your poem, all of your beautiful hand painted treasures and the blue and green colors. The fish plates are just perfect! You are so creative, what an enjoyable post!

    So happy to hoop with you this week! Have a beautiful summer ahead!
