Host a Beach House Dinner


Nothing screams summer more than seashells, so put those shells you picked up on the beach to good use in substitute of a table runner! Here’s what I used to put this summer time table together. For Placemats I chose my Chilewich “Basketweave” placemats {Unlike cloth, I love that you can just wipe them down after use}. For dinner plates, I chose a simple white Ralph Lauren dinner plate and added a pop of color on top with my C. Wonder Navy Ikat Salad Plates. Then how perfect are these gold sea shell coasters by Michael Aram? While most people don’t thing to place coasters on a table, I like that they added texture and a pop of color! The last step was placing an array of seashells that we collected at the beach along the center! Now heat up the grill, because your summer dinner party awaits!
