We loved this quick and easy DIY Beachy chic table setup by Karine from Be Kind and Smile Often. Its a great way to mermaid-up your Thanksgiving tables!
➵ Putting together a pretty table setting to entertain your family and friends can be very simple and doesn’t have to cost a fortune. I often pull items from my bookshelves or my craft containers and use them for the evening. For this table setting I wanted a beachy, seaside feel. It literally took 5 minutes to put it all together! It’s all about cohesion and layering.
I cut the burlap table runner into a length that was slightly longer then my table. Don”t worry about cutting it too straight. I then pulled a few strings on each end to give it a little fringe. I then laid the curly willow branches down the middle of the runner. I propped starfish in between the branches and scattered shells along the runner. It’s fun to just play with it a little to get a look that you like. I pulled a small vase off my shelf and cut a palm leaf from a tree in my yard. You could use any greenery that you have around. Then came the place mats, plates and napkins. I simply tied the napkins with twine and placed a sand dollar on top of them. It can be a fun favor for your guests to take home. To fancy up the water I added orange slices and fresh basil. It’s such a refreshing and delicious addition to a plain glass of water. You could also add some simple tea lights to add a little mood lighting to your table.
