Tablescape Tuesday: Birthday Beach Bash!

“But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭

It is birthday time once again at our house!  You all know how much we love to celebrate birthdays in our family, and our beautiful daughter-in-love turned 28 yesterday!  She loves the beach and since she is a new Mommy and hasn’t been able to get there this summer, I decided to do the next best thing…bring the beach to her!  I set the table outside on the patio this weekend, but the possibility of rain tonight when we celebrate called for an inside bash…we won’t let it rain on this party!  We will enjoy good food and birthday cake, but most of all each other!

White sand and shells remind us of our gorgeous Alabama beaches!

I alternated each place setting with coral and blue placemats and napkins…love to mix it up!

A must  have for the beach… a straw hat!

Shell napkin rings add a little more beach vibe!

I found this shell box several years ago…the perfect centerpiece for a birthday beach bash!


The coral printed table cloth came from TJ Maxx a few years ago!


“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”
Proverbs 25:11

The birthday girl and our little princess!

  1. Neat family birthday party. Love the beach theme.
    That tablecloth is really a great find. I like your shell box and candle vases full of sand and shells.
    Glad you could enjoy your family and especially the birthday girl and her sweet new daughter.

  2. Alice says:

    Birthday girl is a blessed lady. What with a mother-in-love that calls her, daughter-in-love, she will never feel anything less than a true daughter. Your faith shows in everything you do.

  3. Oh gosh, Pam, I fell hard for the tablescape, and then came the photo of your daughter in law and grandbaby – they are beautiful! Love how your photos highlight other elements just slightly out of focus in this tablescape – the garden, the straw hat and hibiscus blooms particularly. Is that a neighbor’s arbor in the background, or yours? Eye candy, either way….

    • Rita, thanks so much! The arbor is ours, we have 18 acres of land with a lot in pasture. My husband built this arbor about 35 years ago. It once was in front of our house under a huge oak tree with a swing. He moved it to behind our house maybe 15 years ago. It holds Lady Banks roses and we keep twinkling white lights in it! Happy Tuesday!

  4. What a thoughtful MIL you are Pam, to set a table with one of her favorite places in mind! Love the coral and blue, and your shell centerpiece box is beautiful! Lovely setting, your family is blessed with that precious baby, and save me a piece of cake!

  5. Kim says:

    Funny how we both have birthday tables this week. Ha! Your DIL and grandgirl are both beautiful! What a fun table you set for the birthday girl. I’m sure she appreciates it very much and gives her nice reminders of beach days. She’ll get there again, but for now, this table gets her through. Looks like you’re a great MIL for her. 🙂

  6. I love your beach themed birthday tablescape. I love blue and coral together. They make such a beautiful statement. Your daughter in law is very fortunate to have you as a mother in law,. What a beautiful table that you designed for her! I hope that you have a very Happy Tuesday!!!

  7. Shenita says:

    Pam, what a sweet gesture for your daughter-in-love!! She and the baby are beautiful! Your tablescape is lovely, as always. I love the color combo!

  8. Sandy Park says:

    Pam, what a thoughtful present of having a beach party for the new Mommy and baby. Way to go. It was beautiful.

  9. Leslie Anne Tarabella says:

    Oh that box! And oh that baby! What total treasures they both are. And to have you as the in-law . . . a treasure as well.

  10. Jann Olson says:

    Pam, birthday girl and little princess are so cute! Just looking at your tablescape kept me cool. 🙂 We are heading to Disneyland and the beach next week with some of our kids and grands. Can’t wait to dip my toes and come home and do a beach tablescape. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  11. Lisa says:

    Your daughter in love is beautiful and the baby absolutely adorable! I know she will be thrilled with her birthday bash because you have certainly given her the beach on a coral and blur platter! I love this color combo!

    Preciosa celebración!! Feliz cumpleaños para tu nuera que está muy bella…¿sabes que este mismo día fue también mi cumpleaños? Si, nací 9 de agosto en el lugar más occidental de España: Galicia.
    Un gran abrazo

    • dolores says:

      Beautiful celebration !! Happy Birthday to your daughter is very beautiful … do you know that this day was my birthday? Yes, I was born on August 9 in the westernmost part of Spain: Galicia.
      A big hug

  13. I always love your tablescapes…but that box!! Amazing! I just restyled a catch all box and I seriously considered covering it with shells, and didn’t, I think one of those is in my future! I guess I will have to spend more time on the beach!

  14. Linda says:

    Love your beachy tablescape. How sweet you brought the beach to your D-I-L. The little seashell box is stunning. The colors are great together.
    Loving the sweet picture of the birthday gal and your your grandbaby.

  15. Catherine says:
