Summer Tables to Kick Off the Season!

Here in my little corner of the world,

Memorial Day {the last Monday in May} is the beginning of summer

I am lucky enough to be starting summer on the Gulf Coast

and I am bringing you a taste of the salty air

with a round up of coastal tables to set the mood!

This weekend is all about fishing

as Snapper season has officially begun

So Many Fish in the Sea

If you can see palm trees you know you’re in a good spot!


Tropical Palms

Sunglasses, surfboards and flip flops…

Beach Bummin’

Nothing to be crabby about at the beach!

Crabs and Starfish

Join me for a Poolside Picnic

Or how about a Lobster Fest?

Sea creatures and sea shells will bring the coastal vibe

to anywhere you are

Sea Creatures and Sea Shells

Pineapples and bright colors add an instant tropical feel…

Taste of the Tropics

Create the feeling of the seashore with glass

and the colors of blue, turquoise and sea green

This weekend we’re celebrating with red, white and blue!

Happy Memorial Day

    Loads of wonderful summer decorating ideas. But, Jenna, where do you store all these fabulous things?

    • Thanks Bernadette, and ha ha, that is a good question! I keep things in plastic storage bins stashed in closets, and I have a large armoire that holds a lot of dishes and other decor. Happy Memorial Day!

  2. Love your summer tables here, Jenna. And the freshly angled fish is just unbeatable for the summer parties.

    Wow, what a productive fishing trip! Love the photo of the guys. What a fun beach post Jenna. I know you have fun being creative with beach themed table settings and I love your play on words. Have fun this Memorial Day weekend and I’ll bet something great will be coming out of the kitchen.

  4. Fresh red snapper, what a treat! Beautiful beach tables for summer, all so fun and festive. Wishing you a wonderful time with family, Jenna 🇺🇸

  5. Every single table is absolutely glorious! It would make the most mundane meal be all the more festive! But nothing mundane about that Snapper catch. Of all the photos I wanted to crawl into right now, that was the one that “caught” me most!

    Oh my goodness, such gorgeous tables! I love all the blues and greens with the sea in view! Those guys have a great haul! It’s good to be queen, enjoy!

    What a wonderful place to spend Memorial Day. I appreciate your tribute; we get so caught up in having fun that I wonder how many realize we are honoring those who have given their lives so that we can enjoy ours. Your tables are beautiful. Your fishermen took in a great haul!

  8. Oh I could not pick a favorite table as I love them all. WOW…those beautiful fish! What a nice catch. I hope that you have a most wonderful Memorial Day. May we never forget those that have served our country and pray for those that are serving. Happy Sunday dear lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    What an amazing round up full of inspiration! I loved every single one of them!
    And look at all that red snapper… yum!
    Have a glorious time with family and friends!

    Happy Memorial Day weekend, Jenna! The snapper will be delish!

  11. Your tables are always filled with such color and texture! I could sit on your porch for hours and enjoy the view!

  12. Your table settings are exquisite and I enjoyed looking at each one. We just left the beach after our 6 months (and a day) in Florida. Now, I’m back on the East Coast enjoying the grass, trees, and nature in my back yard.

    Such beautiful tables!! And, fish! Love Snapper! We missed Snapper season- we were down at Biloxi for a few days and spent Mother’s Day on Dauphin Island. Didn’t make it to Orange Beach that trip. I especially love your table, Sea of Glass. So unique.

  14. lulu says:

    Are the fish snapper? Whatever they are that’s quite a haul! Your tables are happy ones.

  15. Sarah says:

    Beautiful tables set with an awesome waterside setting. Your piece of paradise. Enjoy!

  16. Bonnie Morgan says:

    Love your round-up of tablescapes for Memorial Day and summer. All are so fun and creative.
    I love seeing the guys with their huge haul of Red Snapper.
    The water looks so pretty. Enjoy your time with family. Glad school is out and summer fun has started.

    Ah, Jenna – what a lovely round-up of summer tablescapes – and all against the perfect backdrop! It would be hard to pick a favorite, but the sea glass one is definitely up there. Love all your accessories too! Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day and had lots of time with family – do I foresee a Snapper recipe coming soon? Happy Tuesday in Paradise!

    • Thanks Kim, I have a lot of fun playing by the sea! We had blackened snapper tacos, just grilled the fish with blackened seasoning and then put it in fried flour tortillas with a little salsa…so good!

  18. Mary says:

    My hubby would have Red Snapper envy Jenna! Thanks for the festive round-up of coastal, tropical and patriotic tables. ♥
