Yikes! My oldest grandchild is turning 15 next week! She's studying the driver's manual to take the test for her learner's permit. How did she get this old?
I decided her birthday dinner should be a little more sophisticated than usual. She is really looking forward to going to the beach next month, so I prepared a beach tablescape for her, a friend, and two of her cousins.
Sea shell bakers are the servers for a roll and butter.
The service plates for the shrimp cocktail were a purchase from Tuesday Morning several years ago (Lynn Chase).
The dinner plates (Home Studio, Shoreline Collection) were a sale purchase from Kohl's a few years ago. The girls will be eating steak and baked potatoes.
I think these fun goblets were an on-line purchase. The dots remind me of bubbles blown by fish.
Do the napkins look like sailboats?

Crepe Myrtle trees on the beach? These were the only pretty blooms I could find in the yard.
The "trees" are planted in starfish cups.
A ruffled baby blanket is supposed to resemble the white caps of the ocean waves. (I forgot to remove the two chairs on the back side of the table before setting the table. It was too hard to move them after I had the table set, so they stayed behind the ocean whitecaps.)
Thank you for coming to sail the ocean with us.
This post is partying with Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch and Celebrate It Sunday at Celebrate and Decorate.
