Spring to Summer Tablescape

I had my dining room table set up for spring and Mother's Day with a centerpiece.  
 My gift for my Mother was part of the vignette so I knew I would be changing it soon.
 Since I am more than ready to bring out the summery decor; I changed the table to a message in the bottle centerpiece.
I placed sand in a shabby white tray, filled it with sea shells and placed an old bottle with a note inside for the main focus of this table.
The one rule when you change up your decor for the seasons is to have fun with it.  Use your imagination to add some personality to your space.
I added, next to the tray, a candle, shell, and coral.
I love this look.  It seems anything with shells will really be a hit this summer.
I will be linking up to:
Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.
Before and After Party at The Thrifty Decor Chick.
Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.
Three or More Tuesday  at The Gypsy's Corner.

What fun decor. I can't wait til my boys are old enough when I can leave dishes out of the table for decoration. Right now they will mistake them for frisbees.

Hi Sherry --

What a wonderful beach look for your table -- It certainly is a pleasant reminder of our Sanibel vacation last week! Thanks for your sweet visit. Sorry I can't take credit for my blog "dress" -- I won a makeover from Kathy at "Life in the slow lane" last year -- she asked me what I liked and created a wonderful personalized look -- didn't she do a magnificant job?

Oh so pretty. I love the look too. You are so creative, I would never thought to do a message in a bottle. The shells, coral and the candle are all just so pretty. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
