Let's Dish ~ Bay House Blues

A recent trip to Galveston 

to spend a few days at a lovely home on the bay

was the inspiration for this post.

Want to peek into the kitchen cabinets?

They are full of colorful glass dishes 

that reflect the cool colors of the ocean.

Not only are these dishes full of color,

they also bring wonderful texture to a table.

Glassware in clear blue 

shimmers like the deep blue waters.

Clear wine stems march alongside 

blue margarita glasses on the windowsill

as they reflect light and a view of the water in the distance.

While these colorful tumblers 

make me think of a beach umbrella.

Tumblers with a shell motif offer a bit of

contrast to the seafoam greens and blues.

More umbrella stripes for the butter dish.

To accent the vibrant colors of the sea.

Ceramic mugs of seafoam blue 

and wavy sides are a perfect fit. 

Colorful Fish 

Clear glass snack plates 

take on the color of these paper napkins.

More accents of various textures

 can be found on the table.

Woven placemats the color of sand, 

hold chargers in a deep teal, that in 

turn hold the various colorful glass dinner plates.

Paper napkins are easy 

and convenient for a seaside abode.

While seashell napkin rings

Are like jewels on the linen napkins

at more formal dining occasions.

Acrylic flatware is easy, 

yet offers the elegant look of sea glass.
