Hubby loves lighthouses probably because he has spent his life’s work in navigation and GPS. We live about 10 miles from a lighthouse and we spent a vacation a few years ago visiting a few on the Outer Banks. I saw some lighthouse plates then but I didn’t buy them. When I saw this set, I bought them and started thinking about a lighthouse tablescape. I recently found the tablecloth on Amazon. Although it is mostly hidden, it has anchors, a chain design, and stripes.
I went back and forth a bit trying to decide what colors to use with these lighthouse plates. I started with a blue tablecloth and was working with green and brown accents from the colors on the plates. You can see how that all went out the window!
The lighthouse salad plates were made by American Atelier at Home. There are four different designs, this one is “Cape Neddick”. This actual lighthouse is in Cape Neddick, Maine near York. I bought the plates on Ebay. I love the colors and the designs around the rim of the plate.
The next plate is part of our every day dishes. It is a scarlet salad plate made by Fiesta. I bought them at Macys when we remodeled the kitchen and it became a red and white kitchen.
I bought these heavy beige melamine dinner plates at HomeGoods a few years ago and some turquoise ones in the same pattern. They were made by Il Mulino New York. You can still find them for sale on Ebay.
I bought these chargers on Ebay, a few at a time when I could find them. They are called Color Spectrum by Mikasa and the color is Royal Blue. I love these chargers, I bought them in several colors. They are good quality and heavy.
The bottom charger is my Antique Beaded Charger that I bought at Williams Sonoma several years ago. I use this charger constantly in my table settings. If you look back through my blog at my tablescapes, you will see it often.
Can’t remember what company made the red goblet. I bought them on Ebay and I have had them for a long time. If anyone recognizes the pattern, please let me know! I bought the blue goblets on Ebay, you can still find them for sale there. They were made by Libbey in the 1970’s and the pattern is Tulip in Dusky Blue.
The red flatware is Ginkgo LePrix in Milano Red. I have had it for several years but you can still buy it online. I also bought it in black and I use both colors often.
I bought the anchor place card holders at Bed, Bath and Beyond. They were silver but Hubby painted some black and some white so I can use them more often.
I bought the nautical napkin rings on Ebay this spring. The red and beige and white striped napkins came from HomeGoods.
Not sure where I bought the lighthouse tea light candle holders but it was probably HomeGoods. I have had them for a while.
I think I bought these anchor tea light candle holders at HomeGoods.
This centerpiece lighthouse was actually a lamp that Hubby found at a garage sale. He knew I was looking for lighthouses. He took off all the lamp parts and there it was! It is sitting on one of my Pottery Barn Rhodes Drink Dispensers stands to give a it bit more height.
This lighthouse is Cape Hatteras on Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks. It is one of the ones we visited a few years ago. The other lighthouses on the plates are West Quoddy Head in Lubec, Maine and Split Rock Lighthouse near Silver Bay, Minnesota (upper left plate in this photo). This table setting makes me want to visit more lighthouses!
