Nautical Dinner Party

It's the last week of school for my kids and it's starting to feel like summer is right around the corner.
I guess I'm on the post every three month schedule?

Last weekend we had a dinner party for some dear friends we rarely get to see anymore.

I wanted to make the evening feel special, so I pulled out my nautical/beach inspired decor to set the table.

I made Seared Sea Scallops in Saffron Cream Sauce for the appetizer and they were delicious.  
Just click on the link for the recipe.
Thank you Paula from Bell'alimento 

I recently started working at Anthropology and I scored the coral table cloth the first week 
I started my new job.
I had coveted it for a long time before I started working there and it just happened to go on sale the week I started.  
It was meant to mine.

I picked up the placemats at Homegoods last year.

I found the square dinner plates at Target years ago.

The glass floats are from Marshalls.
The octopus tray in the background is from Homegoods.

It was a great evening with friends, yummy food, and good wine.
Hope your summer is off to a fun start.

Thanks for checking it out.
