table by the sea

today i love..
dried hydrangeas..driftwood..rattan..shells..stripes..fishing floats..jars & candles, mixed together as though they were washed up on the shore, for a coastal tablescape. 










i've had the hydrangeas for weeks now, picked from a white flowering plant. the green flowers, picked before they turn white seem to dry well.

have a great week!
