Nautical Holiday Table Setting Ideas


Nautical Holiday Table


Create a Nautical table setting this Holiday season by using the colors found in old nautical charts.  The above table inspiration is from Coastal Living by “varying the size of the bottles and woven patterns on the wicker casings so they look collected over time.”  Jute or twine works well for attaching little anchors to your cloth napkins.

Etsy has some of the best artisans in the world, including EyeCandySugar who creates nautical cupcake toppers made of fondant (order early!).

Nautical Table Setting Ideas:

1. Everyday dishes can be layered with nautical dessert plates or salad plates for a nautical vibe.

2. Coastal flatware can be used all year long and will look beautiful with your new dishes!

3. Purchase a handmade rope trivet or two for an immediate nautical flair.

4. Coastal tablerunners can be used throughout the year too!

5. Marble drink coasters and custom serving spoons

If you love the coast (even if you’re inland) it’s easy to bring in a few pieces to add some nautical-style to your Holiday this year!

    The cupcake toppers are so lovely. I’ve also seen chocolate shells by an Etsy artisan and they looked so real! What patience it must take to do this kind of work.
