Dream Life: Tropical Dinner By The Pool!!

March 22, 2018

Ah, another Charleston paradise!!   I have always fantasized about having a large garden with a palm-tree lined pool here in town and this is just the ticket.    Sitting right on South Battery, this large pink lady is a dream come true (and it’s also for sale!).   We felt so lucky to continue our exploration of the beautiful gardens downtown here and were so delighted to meet another LOVELY owner :).   This pool would be such fun to lay next to by day but even more fun to host an evening, candle-lit get together next to.  We couldn’t resist a bougainvillea center piece to go along with our dragonfly ranunculus and favorite tropical melamine plates…

This simple set up is so easy to do at home.   We have used these placemats more than any other (they’re our casual go-to’s) and these tropical napkins are so much fun directly on the plate.   The starfish were there and enhance the tropical feel perfectly.   I will always opt for shells/sea creatures on the table when possible.

We shot this a few weeks ago but have been saving it for this week because we have been working flat out on an exciting project with House Beautiful which has taken all of our focus and I can’t wait to see the final result, stay tuned!!  Back to our regularly scheduled content for now! xx
