With Summer on the horizon, I was eager to bring some coastal living to my backyard (yes, I have a wild imagination). This table setting was inspired by a recent trip to Newport, Rhode Island. On my way home to NJ, I made a brief stop at one of my favorite home decor shops in Greenwich, CT called Hoagland’s where I found these gorgeous red coral print linens.

Hoagland’s carries these colorful sea-inspired table linens from Kim Seybert and these unique chargers in a variety of colors. Kim Seybert linens can also be found at  Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus. For contrast, I used my Lenox Opal Innocence china.

For the centerpiece I used a trio of white coral votives (also from Hoagland’s) and sea urchin candlesticks. The crystal stemware is Waterford from Think Twice Consignment in Gillette, NJ.

I love serving Veuve in this stunning champagne pitcher, which was a gift from my brother and his girlfriend (Scully & Scully).

If this inspires you to hunt for more red coral themed table decor, look no further than this gorgeous “Cristobal coral” dinner service by Raynaud. Until I win the lottery, I will be stickng to my white china and coral linens, thank you 🙂
