Summer Sea Shell Centerpiece

Sea Shell Centerpiece
Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend. Since it was almost 100F here, I thought it was a good time for a summer centerpiece on my living room coffee table.

Sea Shell Centerpiece
I started with a thrifted silver tray and doily. The glass candle holders, sand, and sea shells can be found at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

100+ degrees- yikes. I think that I appreciate our cooler weather up here much more now... We will be in the 70's this week.

Your centerpiece IS very summery, Kelli:) I love the variety of the pretty shells!:)

Take care and stay in the AC!

I've got to get Little Package's shells cleaned up...we took her to the beach the other day. I love the centerpiece.

TJ said...

That looks great! I wish I could put things like that out. As it is, the vase I put out keeps getting chunks out of it thanks to a few kids.

We have so many beach shells, but I should pick up some sand too!

Have a wonderful day !!

Gena said...

I love your centerpiece. I have shells on my front-door wreath and shells on my kitchen table. We've been to the beach quite a bit recently and I just love the way they look and what they remind me of. I think I started my summer decorating a bit earlier simply because I missed the beach!

Kelli~
You always have a clever idea to show us! Today is no different! Thanks for the inspiration.
Blessings!

Piney Rose said...

Lovely! Always enjoy checking in with you.

Nancy said...

Your centerpiece looks so pretty! We live on Long Island and have visited many beach areas, so we have lots of shells around in jars and bowls-I always enjoy the beauty of shells. I just looked back at your "4th of July Banner" post from June of 2008-I love it! It will take me until the 4th to complete, so I better start!

This arrangement is so pretty. I love using the beach theme in my home. I have many pieces from the beach. I put them everywhere and love the look.

MyJourneyBack said...

Beautiful display. I didnt realize it was almost 100! No wonder I was so hot! My vegs are enjoying it though but guess we're into having to water more.
I hope you have a great week.

100 degrees, ah yes. I try to pretend it is only 80..lol
I like your center piece. I am in the process(very slow one, hehe) of making a sea shell windchime. I just need to actually put it together. Have a great week!

What a fresh serene centerpiece, Kelli. I love it. One could sit and imagine the calming sound of the ocean waves and the cool water and wet sand between one's toes.

What a lovely centerpiece!

Lady Katherine said...

Love the summer shell centerpiece! Makes you want to go to the Beach and find some shells! I found arm loads of shells on Florida's East Coast at Crescent Beach, I had so much fun picking them up. Now my daughter has most and covered a mirror with them. I might need to sneak over there and get a few! Your tray is great too!

Susan B said...
