Escape to the Sea Tablescape

Escape the winter weather and come with me to
a seaside tablescape at our home 
in Cabo.

This table for two is set up on the patio overlooking
the pool and the ocean.

The textural scalloped plates are topped with raised shells
and starfish and real starfish rest on the shell plates.

I love the rich detail on these plates.

A silk orchid takes center stage on the table. 
The beautiful white is perfect with the plates.

This is a spot we often sit at to enjoy a morning breakfast
in the shade.

These are my newest glasses from the Cabo store called
Artesanos which is filled with glassware.  These are 
coming home with me. They are a rich champagne color
which will go with everything.

We only have one set of flatware here in Cabo
so that is what we are using today - 
a hammered texture in stainless steel.

Balls covered in shells also join the centerpiece
for a great seaside look.

Such beautiful color and texture in these glasses.

Looking just past the table to another outside
living area my guests are looking on as I take
photos.  We have just returned from our 
morning walk on the beach.
We begin the day with a walk on the beach
and then enjoy fresh squeezed orange juice.

It is always nice to escape during the winter months 
to warmth and sunshine and the ocean.  Hope you
enjoyed coming along to Cabo with us today.

I will be posting this with 

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Oh Jacqueline, this is "heaven on earth". Everything is beautiful.
    It reminds me of Mauritius.
    Thanks for sharing and bringing back memories for me.

  4. Bonjour Jacqueline!!!

    My oh my, these scenes make me want to take off NOW for my anniversary vacation that will just have to wait until school is over in June. Ruben is taking me back to our honeymoon spot in Carmel, Calif. but this scenery is FABULOUS TOO! Those gorgeous white on white table scapes are just magnificent dearest, and I could do with just white in my home, but with a splash of AQUA!!! THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY and you too have celebrated a milestone as well? Isn't it a gift, this life, to enjoy its ups and downs with the one you love? ENJOY MY DEAR ONE and have you created any fabulous chocolate confections lately?

    BISOUS! Anita
