Summer Coffee Table Vignette

When I changed out the mantle and hearth for summer, I did the coffee table too. I actually just realized that I shared the mantle but not the hearth. So, I will share that tomorrow! I have a large collection of shells, as I have been collecting them for over 30 years. I love every one of them, and enjoy using them in my décor in the summer, even though we are 2 hours from the beach:) This first shell is definitely a favorite.
 I have this wonderful piece of blue coral that I have had for YEARS.
 I found this candle holder at Home Goods this year and couldn't resist it. The nubby glass reminds me of the nubby starfish I have. I have an LED candle in it and a starfish on top!
 I only have ONE hydrangea bloom right now and could find none at the grocery, so these faux ones are temporarily here.
 Everything is gathered on a textural tray.

 You all know I adore this pillow! I found it at Burlington Coat Factory several years ago and are you ready....it was $6.99!!!!! I couldn't grab it fast enough and will never get rid of it.

 I found this jar/vase at another shop and wanted it specifically to use as a vase for hydrangeas.
 I filled in the vase with some white faux hydrangeas cause I thought it was too sparse with just the blue.

Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you are staying cool where you are. We have had a few very nice days (low 80's) but the heat and humidity is returning Wed.  I used to LOVE the heat of summer and basking in the sun, but now I can't take too much. I guess I really AM getting old:)

  5. Beautiful Pinky.....love the blues of summer!....I cannot handle the heat anymore either....as a kid I used to be at the beach all day....now?....I need an umbrella!!!

  6. The blue coral is very unique! I don't think I've ever seen one. I don't blame you for holding on to it all these years.

    I'm not a fan of super hot weather either. It sucks the life out of me.
