Seagrass Tablescape

Sheeww! What a crazy week I had last week! I got extremely sick with an upper respiratory infection and have been on antibiotics for a week and I'm just now getting back into the swing of things.
So where were we before I got sick....oh yeah, I was totally inspired by my sea grass basket that I wanted to share with you more sea grass decor.
I just love the look of natural elements like jute, wicker, and sea grass, because they are elements that give a coastal or cottage feel to your space, and I'm a sucker for the coastal/cottage look!
Here is a little table scape I put together with some fresh flowers, my new blue mason jar and a few birds I have had  for a while.
I grouped it all together inside this sea grass basket I found at a thrift store and created a Springy vignette on the coffee table.
Sea grass baskets can be pricey so don't forget to check your local thrift stores for them too. I have found several really nice baskets for a fraction of the price at thrift stores and garage sales.
Just check to make sure the sea grass is clean and still tightly woven before you buy.

I love the pop of the blue glass against the natural backdrop of the sea grass basket.
I can't wait to change this out with the seasons. These baskets are so versatile that you can use them anywhere in your home all throughout the year, and thrifty chicks like me love getting full use out of our decor!

If you missed my last post on sea grass baskets, you can find it HERE.
My upcoming post is a designer inspired post and I'm super excited to share it with you, so stayed tuned for more sea grass looks this week as I'm finally feeling better and picking back up on my projects.
Have a wonderful day!

  10. So sorry to hear you've been sick Jennifer. Think you might have had what's been all over the blasted country. Who spreads that stuff? Yuk.
    I know cause I had it for 3 weeks. I tend to get viruses like that worse as I have asthma, yuk. I didn't go to doc.
    I sure love your sea grass basket/tray. It is such a nice one,in such wonderful condition, lucky you. I love baskets but especially sea grass, it's just a different texture and look. Love to get some goodies rounded up and put them in a basket of some kind for a new arrangement. Gives me a pick up, keeps me from getting bored. Shop the house/shed. Happy days
