By the Sea~
Did I hear someone say sea escape? From sea to shining sea, seaside dining is one of my favorite choices for a casual, serene afternoon or evening meal. Allow me to suggest the Thomas Paul Sea Life Collection. Vivid colors and classic deep-sea graphics make this Melamine dinnerware tablescape beautiful and wallet friendly.

Amazon ~ Nautical Seashore Table Runner
I could spend an entire afternoon on a dollar store run searching for accessories that affordably add fun to the tablescape. Kitchen towels tied with plastic pearl strands make great napkin and napkin ring options. Other table ideas range from various sized glass cylinders filled with shells, votive candles, and decorative coral used as a centerpiece or menu holder.

An Evening In Paris~
House Beautiful features this European tablescape from Bottega Veneta’s creative director, Tomas Maier. The beauty of a European themed tablescape is the simplistic elegance. “The service and mood should be informal, and the food, wine, and presentation extraordinary,” states Mr. Maier.
Soft lighting, informal china and crystal, and a benign neglect to formality describes the European sentiment.
When I think of European decor elements crisp whites, rich browns, soft grays and deep wine reds immediately come to mind. Below are a few items to illustrate the casually elegant, casually European point.
Far East and Away~
Do you have a flair for the Far East? The lines and color palette of Asian influenced dinnerware and decorative accessories create beautifully themed tablescapes. The retail selections available make it easy to set your table as casual or Far East formal as you wish.
There are many possibilities and combinations for destination themed tablescapes. In what corner of the world will you set your table escape?
