White Freesias, white seashells and cake

*

I have a huge collection of seashells and I have been collecting them for years, I use them for decorating in so many ways. I have shells in my bathrooms with soap, I have huge shells in the garden filled with water for the birds. Here I have used my shells as the centrepiece for this table setting.

White tablecloth, white china, cream napkins and many different shaped shells.
I dusted everything with white, the cake with icing sugar, the bread with flour.

  12. I've always loved putting cream color flowers inside seashells. Not only do they look stunning here on this beautiful tablescape but also in bathrooms! Thanks for the reminder.
