Beach Table

Well, we had a much needed, relaxing time at the beach last week.  And...it was so sad to have to leave the island and return to the real world, but it is always nice to pull into your driveway, see your house and know you are home.

I set a beach table to celebrate our time at the beach and all the fun we have there.  Maybe we'll go back before the end of the year, at least that's what we always say when we're leaving.

Instead of flowers for the centerpiece, I used these over-sized, fun fish.





I filled small shell bowls with seashells and put a little note in each one for every plate.  It was fun picking up the shells and looking at them and their beautiful colors and textures.
 


I love watching the pelicans fly over the water and dive down to get a fish.  These small pelicans for our table are salt and pepper shakers.


On the menu for the night was homemade Hushpuppies, Blackened Salmon steaks and "Special Rice."  We call it special because we use whatever we have in the kitchen in the rice which makes it "special" each time. 



I'm looking forward to a new week full of challenges and surprises.  Hope to see you Wednesday.
