As soon as I saw these whale plates at Target, I knew I had to have them. I already had this large whale centerpiece and I was just waiting to find other whale elements for a whale tablescape. The navy blue tablecloth came from Amazon, one of the first places I look for tablecloths when I need them. They are often inexpensive and have good reviews. The whale runner was part of the set of whale items for sale from Target this spring. The whole set was created by Vineyard Vines, a company founded on Martha’s Vineyard. I found the artificial blue flowers on Amazon. The whale centerpiece sits on a drink dispenser stand from Pottery Barn. We saw the whale on a long weekend a few years ago but it was too expensive. After we came home, I found one online that was a second and it was a good price so I bought it.
I love the combination of blue and white for tablescape designs, it is so clean and crisp and the colors provide a great contrast.
This whale salad plate was made by Vineyard Vines. The back says, “Every day should feel this good”.
This whale design dinner plate was made by Vineyard Vines too, part of the set of whale table items at Target. It also has “Every day should feel this good” on the back.
The 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. A simple white charger is a great first purchase if you want to create more interest in your table settings.
The clear goblet is made by Waterford, it’s called Marquis Brookside. I bought them at HomeGoods this spring. I also have them in red. I love taller goblets like this one. 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.
This FishStix flatware is really fun. It was made by Galleyware. I love the designs in the bowls of the forks and spoon and the fish tail handles. The knife has a shark face on the side.
The metal white whale napkin rings are also part of the Vineyard Vines whale set from Target. I had someone on Etsy make the whale napkins for me. I love the way they turned out.
I found the whale bowls online, they aren’t to be used for food (they’re for plants) but they were too cute not to sit on this table.
The clam shell place care holders were made by Andrea by Sadek. I bought them online but I can’t remember where.
I added a small glass blown whale from my glass collection to the table. I have had it for many years.
I have always loved whales. Decades ago Hubby and I used to drive out to the end of the Peninsula and watch whales pass by during their annual migration. This table brings back wonderful memories of seeing those beautiful creatures.
