Something Fishy Tablescape

Welcome, Cairn Cottage Friends!
Here we are already at the end of August! Where does the time go?
Being that we live on a lake, I love to collect "fish" decor. I also love to decorate with the color blue.
As you can tell below, I decided to share some of my "fish" items in this nautical-themed tablescape.

This fish serving platter is my centerpiece and a favorite find. I had a similar plate years ago that got broken and had been looking for another one ever since. I found this at one of my favorite stores, T.J. Maxx.
These little wooden fish and fish basket were a garage sale find, of which my hubby purchased with many other "lake-themed" decor items one day while driving home from work. I love the rough, old look of the faded painted wood.
Of course, my collection of tea(or coffee) cups never ends.This whimsical fish cup caught my eye, too!
Sea turtles, starfish, and seashells surround two other matching teacups I recently collected.(Here is one of those cups)
My white seashell and starfish cup and saucer have been a part of my collection for a few years. I think it is so unique and goes well with my nautical theme.
I also came across these nautical plates at T.J. Maxx several months ago and couldn't pass them up.
The tableclothe, matching napkins (in my clear water glasses) and blue and white nautical placemats were all purchased in the sale isle at Meijer. Talk about hitting the lottery!!
I couldn't have found a more perfect color coordinated, nautical-themed display of items! It just makes me wonder if something "fishy" is going on...LOL!
I may just have to serve fish for dinner!!
