Nautical Servers with Sea Scenes or Colors
There are many different approaches that you can take when choosing nautical serving dishes, or nautical anything, for that matter.
- Pictures and Symbols: You can choose pieces with pictures of ships or maritime symbols on them.
- Stripes: Nautical stripes always seem to be in style.
- Colors: if you like a more subtle approach, think in therms of color alone - the color of white sails, the blue sky. the aqua of the sea, and the tan or gray of the sand.
- Shapes: You can even have an accent piece or two defined by its shape. Dishes are available in the shape of seashells, anchors, sea creatures. Some have shaped handles or reminiscent of the sea, or bordered by a mariner's rope.
- The Shore: Don't forget the shore... lighthouses and shore birds can add a lot of seaside charm, too.

Incorporate a Bit of the Beach Into Your Nautical Decior
B lending beach and nautical motifs come naturally. After all, the beach ends at the sea,and the sea ends at... well, you get the picture.
I recently happened upon the following video, which explains how to use rocks found on the beach to make a rather unusual table runner. It's actually quite a creative idea!
If you can't get past the idea of rocks on the surface where you eat, then you might consider doing something similar with sea glass. Sea glass can be found on most shores, and is often collected to be used in jewelry and other crafts. It's little pieces of colored glass that has been tumbled smooth and polished by the action of the surf and the sand.
