Black & White Boho Coastal Tablescape

 I'm in disbelief that we are into the month of August already! This year is flying by! I'm trying to savour every moment of summer right now as demonstrated by my latest tablescape.

The "boho coastal" vibe was inspired by this terrific black and white striped tablecloth by Ownkoti. I love the tassel fringe on the edges!

I continued the black and white neutrals into the place settings and centerpiece.

Starfish-shaped and black and white striped melamine plates were set atop a white scalloped edged charger.

These boho inspired placemats are a recent find and were perfect for my theme.  I layered them on top of some thicker woven ones I already had.

I love the cute pompom fridge on the edge.

The black woven coverings on this glassware also helped convey the boho theme and the glasses were set on top of shell-shaped dishes.

I used my black handled flatware for a coordinated look.

Black napkins were encircled with wooden bead/fringed napkin rings and shells were turned into placecard holders.

The centerpiece started by layering a wide burlap ribbon down the length of the table and setting the other items on top.

 Two black framed mirrored trays were placed on either side of  a large pedestal bowl in the middle.

 The bowl was filled with starfish, a large shell ball and faux greenery.

I also tucked in some wooden beads with twine fringe.

The mirrored trays held a woven covered glass-turned-candleholder and a ceramic basket filled with shells and faux grasses.

More shell shaped tealight holders were set along the middle of the table.

I was pleased with how the boho coastal vibe really came together in this tablescape and the pampas grass as a backdrop in the dining room helped as well.

The overhead view again.

Now that the table's set, I'm thinking of asking hubby to cook up one of his delicious seafood meals and inviting some friends over.

Are you holding onto summer or are you ready for fall?

Thanks for visiting!


  1. You did a fabulous job! This is hands down one of the best coastal table settings I have seen this entire summer! I love how you mixed boho with coastal. The black and white is so fun and I enjoyed that it was not the traditional blues and tans. Love! Great job!
