Nautical Table Decor!

I had a great shopping experience today that I just had to share it with all of you. Until today, I have been using my 30 year old Lenox wedding china for special occasions, which does not work with my nautical seashore decor. Today that has changed, as I finally found and  purchased the most beautiful dishes on One Kings Lane that will look wonderful on my dining room table. Without a doubt, these dinner and salad dishes will be my new special occasion dishes!

Although I will not receive this order for a week or two, I am already planning my first dinner party to “show off” my newest dishes and table decor! I will post again when my table is set and ready for my dinner guests, but until then I hope you have the chance to visit One Kings Lane’s special “Coastal Setting” sale, and are inspired by the nautical-coastal inspired tabletop as I was!

Happy Shopping!!!!!!

Something Extra!: Here’s some other pieces in the One Kings Lane collection that I just love!

Seaside Rugs!

Whether you live by the shore or are inland, your home can reflect the love of all things nautical.  An easy update for any room is a new rug.  Big or small, solids or stripes, cotton or braided – there are so many nautical and sea inspired rug themes to add the nautical touch you may be looking for.  I generally do not like to cover a beautiful hardwood or tile floor, but the right size rug will anchor your room design.  There are so many areas to use  beautiful and fun nautical rugs so let your inner designer come out!  Remember, your feet need someplace to wipe the sand off!!!!

 

Easter Time!!!!


Spring is here and Easter is just a few days away.  This is a great time to bid  farewell to winter and refresh your home decor with bright spring colors.  I love how cheerful  my house looks when I start decorating with colorful eggs, beautiful spring flowers that smell delicious, and decorative whimsical bunnies! Whether you are setting your dining table for Easter brunch or dinner, decorating your mantel, or just adding some playful Easter decorations on a coffee table I have some great ideas for you!

Happy  Decorating  &  Happy Easter!

Something Extra: One of my favorite Easter traditions is baking Easter Bread! Here’s a picture of the finished product!

Olivia loves the beach & swimming!

If you have a dog and love all that is nautical, then you will love todays post.  Without going overboard, Fido can look his/her best in a new collar with matching leash.  There are so many nautical themed collars to fit any size dog.  I have found quite a few that are perfect for my pooch Olivia.  

I hope you find the perfect nautical collar for your pooch!

Classic leather strap!
