Blue and White Sea Island Dinner Party

I was so lucky to get to spend some time in Sea Island this summer with my family. Those of you that check in here regularly will have seen some shots of a tablescape I built while I was there in my last blog post but I have many more and I wanted to keep sharing! I was so lucky to work with Kelli Boyd Photography who did an incredible job of capturing the day!

You all know my love of blue and white!

You all know my love of blue and white!

Nothing is more classic than the color combination of blue and white. I knew when I was planning these tablescapes that I had to have at least one set up in these colors because they are perfect for a beachside location! I loved putting white flowers in the patterned vase (my friends at Vinegarden Market did an incredible job with the flowers!) because it was dynamic and eye catching without being too busy!

I experimented with two different settings for the table and I had such trouble making a decision! I love the sea motif of the set on the left but ever the lover of color that I am, the contrast of the blue and coral in the plates on the right were so lovely. The exercise also reminded me that there are so many different ways to set a table and to keep pushing myself to try new things!

A subtle detail that I loved about this setup was the way the light caught the tablecloth and gave it a pinkish glow (you can see easily in the photo above). That tint perfectly tied in with either of the place settings in a really nuanced and beautiful way!

I will be posting more shots of these tablescapes (and maybe some never-before-seen shots) on my Instagram over the next couple weeks- so if you aren't already following me there, make sure to click here to check it out!
