Ocean Tides

Sea greens, tranquil blues, and bold yellows star in these different ocean-themed tablescapes. Fish, seashells, sailboats, and pearls—all inspirations for these gatherings—are reflected in china, napkin holders, centerpieces, and place settings. Draw from your own memories of cherished family trips to the seashore, getting sand on your feet and ocean spray in your hair. Bring these moments to your table by decorating with seashells you have collected, filling glass candleholders with sand, and using sea grass in your bouquet. An afternoon by the sea is always a reason to celebrate.
