LET THERE BE A WHITE BEACH THEMED FLOATING TABLE!

Today, I am joining the:



Let There Be White Part II party at Cuisine Kathleen


and...


The "Beach Party", at The Shabby Chic Cottage.

I am re-posting my "floating table" originally posted in May after Kathleen Ellis Life Style Design gave directions for making the floating table.






For more "white + 1 color tablescapes", please go visit Cuisine Kathleen. For more Beach Parties, please get links from The Shabby Chic Cottage. For directions to make a much better "floating table" than I could make, go to Kathleen Ellis Life Style Design. I'm so lucky to have so many wonderful blog friends, who give fun Blogville parties and teach me fun tricks. Thank you Gina, Kathleen and Kathleen.

I always appreciate you coming to visit and leaving me a note. laurie

Laurie,
Happy Anniversary my dear friend! On my birthday, how wonderful! And since you only look about 18 or 19 and I would have been 12 we're not that far apart in age. You were such a cute bride! I am still in awe of that floating table too. How you accomplished that is beyond me but it would be so wonderful at a wedding or anniversary too! I have studied yours and I am still stumped! Have a great week my friend and thanks for the Birthday wishes as well! Cindy

I remember this, Laurie. It's so pretty with the white lights.

Hope you don't mind, but I borrowed your picture for my anniversary post. You've been a great inspiration.

This was fun to share again -- I loved it the first time too. Love this floating table!

susan said...

Laurie-First, Happy anniversary!! This is no small accomplishment!!I loved seeing the floating table again. I saw it when we were doing wedding plans and loved it! I was just intimidated by it. Guess it's a good thing--it might not have been as attractive without electricity :) Hope you are having a good week!

susan said...

p.s.--Thanks for keeping Adrian on the prayer list!

Good morning Laurie! Oh what fun... a floating table. I've got to remember this concept and try it sometime. The beach theme works great with it! Well done...

What an incredible table Laurie! It's just beautiful but I can't help but wonder if cleaning up the sand was a pain. Happy anniversary!

Love your blog! The TV is amazing! As a fairly new blogger, it is such fun to see other blogs and see such unique things!

I love your floating table and especially the lighted sandcastle! This Beach Party is such a great way to "close" out the summer days...

It's also fun to see that you follow Marie Reed with her vintage postcards... (I hope that everything is alright at her place...since she hasnt posted in a while.)

And I look forward to seeing you at the Rooster Party!

Blessings & Aloha!

Connie said...

Hi laurie, What a pro you are getting to be with your mosaics. I just love the blue ones when you use the white on them.
I am getting my computer looked over next week. It's not the computer as much as the lines coming into the house. Bad connections, I guess. I hope I am back in business now for a while.
Thanks for your kind words.

Oh my goodness how I adore this! It is so lovely. But I am a sucker for white and the beach.

Thank you for your kind comments.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Hi Laurie - Yes, I spelled out shells on the jar with rubon letters. I think I got them at HL over a year ago, and have not found them there since.

Maya said...

A floating table..., what a neat idea. And I love that sandcastle, so cool.
