Tabletop Greetings from Newport!

This week's tabletop comes to you from Newport, Rhode Island. I decided to take things on the road so that I can keep up with the blog while also making the most of summer!



This vintage tablecloth adds a lot of cheer to our hotel room, with a little help from the plastic dishes, flatware and plaid napkins from our picnic pack.







Candles set the mood for cocktails after a day at the beach.







The picnic pack is so handy when we want to bring home some appetizers from the clam shack before heading out to supper.

These blue Hall shell dishes look great with the seahorse salt and pepper shakers I found at the shop of the Newport Preservation Society.



I do love a sea-themed table! They bring back such good memories of scenes like this.



Thanks for stopping by for some Tabletop Greetings from Newport! I'll be sharing this travelling table in a better-late-than-never entry for Tablescape Thursday on Between Naps On The Porch.

Can you followers believe that I set a table with no Fiesta this week? I almost said "no Homer Laughlin," but now that Homer owns Hall, I guess that's not really true!
