add this week’s seashell color palette to your table this summer

This week’s palette may not be one you’d automatically think of when you think of summer entertaining. Sometimes these creams, tans, rusts and pinks are associated more with fall. But as you can see taking cues from the beach and seashells, this soothing palette is wonderful for summer tables. If you didn’t realize I have a shop too with tabletop, decor and garden items, all personally selected by me. If you haven’t already, please head over to take a look.  It’s my favorite items and vendors collected from all my years of editing and styling for magazines. Our “Mud Australia” dinnerware comes in cream and slate. It is shiny on the interior and matte on the outside. These are just so gorgeous, I love the entire collection. Napkins can be the easiest way to add a color to your table. Our steel gray linen napkin can add a little depth and masculinity to the table. But we also carry beautiful thick cream and white linen napkins if you would like to keep it classic.  Our terra cotta votive can add a touch of the garden to your table as well as the hurricanes that we carry with terra cotta bases.  Looking for something a bit smaller? Our pink lotus bowl can be used as a dipping bowl, a votive or for condiments. The fine pink salt is a soft but unusual addition to a tabletop. Use a salt cellar full at each place setting. It does not have a very ‘salty’ taste to it, it is very light and adds just a hint of flavor, especially to fish. Please shop around and let us know if you are looking for something in particular! – Lynn Butler Beling
