Table for One-Tapas Anyone?

Hi everyone! We all love "vacation" and we're all familiar with the term "stay-cation", now I'd like to introduce:
"Fake-cation" = A mini mental getaway any where-any time!
Simply bring out some tropical or beachy things, put on Marley or Buffet, light a few candles and 
pour yourself a drink (after all, it is five o'clock somewhere)!
Keep the food light, Tapas and finger foods are perfect. 
Enjoy the flowers.
Close your eyes, feel the breeze, breathe in slowly, can you hear the ocean?
Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for other fun tablescapes!
Have a happy day!

  10. Love it! We got your rain, so it is nice and steamy! I spent a summer in Philly, so I know of what I speak!
    Your Tapas table is sweet, I can feel the breeze!
    I was in CTS Sunday and thought of YOU! They had Christmas cards out with a cute little pig with a Santa hat! You have to get them!!!
    They also started putting out a few Fall things and a trickle of Christmas! A few more weeks and you can go on a field trip! :)

  12. We all need a fake-cation once in awhile. I really like the table runner, next to green, aqua is my second favorite color. The shell plates are cute. Beautiful lily.

  18. The color of your runner reminds me of the ocean, and the addition of the shells just completes the mood. I just found two of those shell dishes at a garage sale...I LOVE them!

  24. Whooo, how funny. Reminds me to the German joke, to make holdiday in Balconien/Balconia. Which means staying at home at the balcony. Yes, you did a good job, the imagination makes the rest. I love thois shell glass plates. Thank you for the fake-cation.
    Greetings, Johanna
