The beach theme has always been a favorite when it comes to events, especially weddings. The relaxed ambiance of the beach, the sound of the waves, and the calming sea breeze are some of the best things about the beach. However, not everyone can have a beachside wedding.
But, do not worry. You can always bring the beach to your home. Inspirational images of beach table settings can help you get ideas on how you can incorporate a beach theme for your next event. In this blog, we will delve into the different color schemes that can be used for a beachy tablescape.
Beach Table Setting Ideas
“Avoid items that may sink into the sand, like narrow heels or small furniture. Opt for wedges or flats and consider beach-friendly seating options, such as driftwood benches.” – The Wedding Academy
Shades of Blue
If you want a classic beach theme, shades of blue are the way to go. This color palette is perfect for creating a serene and cool vibe. You can mix shades of blue from light aqua to navy. Add turquoise table runners and accentuate with white dinnerware. Top it off with seashell accents, starfish, and a scattering of sand.
Beach themes do not need to be all about blue. You can incorporate earthy tones too, like sand, greenery, and natural wood. You can use beige and brown tones and add burlap table runners for a rustic touch. Then, add greenery, like succulents, to bring a fresh vibe. Keep the shell accents, and add wood accents, like a wooden tray for salt and pepper shakers.
If you want to veer away from a traditional beach theme, you can go for nautical colors. Use navy as the primary color and accent with white and red. You can also add striped patterns for a classic nautical look. For centerpieces, you can add a small fishing net with anchors and miniature boats.
Coral and Pink
For a more feminine beach theme, coral and pink hues are perfect. You can even branch out to purples. You can combine pale pink and coral with white tableware. Add pops of green foliage to add some color balance. This showed you that you can really branch out in color on a beach theme yet still have it all work together.
What is a beach theme without a gorgeous beach sunset? You can add shades of orange, gold, and pink to your color scheme. Add natural elements, like driftwood, to balance the bright colors. For centerpieces, you can use mason jars with LED lights to mimic the sunset.
