Quick and Easy Nautical Tablescape

With summer nearly upon us, I know you're probably already thinking about the barbecues and parties that you can't wait to plan. You might even just want to make an ordinary summer evening dinner extra special for your family. Well, I've always found that themes can give any table some serious extra oomph. Today's theme is nautical...


I decided to use Twizzlersto create an easy nautical themed tablescape. I started with a red, white and blue color palette and worked from there. Navy blue and white polka dot paper plates went perfectly atop red plastic chargers. I also added mason jars, striped straws and an anchor adorned burlap basket as a napkin holder. You're feelin' the nautical vibe already right? Well, I haven't even gotten to the cutest part yet!

Our pets...fluffy little friends...our "fur-babies"...It's clear that we love our pets. I mean, who could resist this face? Last year we spent over $60 billion dollars on them which is more than we spent on ourselves at the salon. It's pretty clear that we care about our pets more

I made easy DIY candy nautical knots by taking two Twizzlers Twists and looping them together to form a knot. It's as easy as that. They're just darling and really kick things up a notch in the nautical department. The Twizzlers fun doesn't end there however. I also made a fireworks reminiscent centerpiece by putting a metal bucket filled with Twizzlers Twists on top of a cake stand and fanning them out to create what looks like a burst of fireworks.


This easy nautical tablescape would be perfect for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July or any summer day really! You can make every summer activity sweeter with a fruity, long-lasting treat to entertain, like Twizzlers Twists, which are offered in a resealable bag for convenient on-the-go sharing! So, when you're done setting up your summer table complete with Twizzlers, you can reseal the bag. You wouldn't want that tasty goodness to get stale now would you? Twizzlers Twists are perfect for at home movie night snacks. Just sayin'! That's just another way to add some fun to your summer, but I digress...
