Celebrating 200 Likes...

What better way to celebrate reaching 200 "Likes" on my Facebook page than a little coastal giveway for your summer entertaining.  All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know what your favorite summer dish is. 






This is a vibrant blue dish - that will go perfect on your summer tabletop.  When I spotted this in one of my favorite stores last week -  I knew that this would be a perfect way to celebrate reaching this milestone.  

I will announce the winner on Friday, May 20th.  Good luck.

Your home is lovely! I have slowly been changing our home from a country feel to coastal. Your home has given me many ideas! This serving dish would be lovely on my dining table. I would probably filled it with shrimp or crab fingers for parties.

This dish is lovely. My favorite summer dish won't go in it. But I can think of many other things that will :) My favorite summer dish is fruit pizza with Kiwi, Strawberries & Mandarine Oranges. Such a tasty end to a good summer BBQ. Leisa G.

That is a beautiful dish! I would love to use that in the summer to serve fresh veggies with a dip. YUM! I love grilled chicken, corn on the cob and watermelon!

Shore Debris said...

I love that dish! It matches my kitchen perfectly :) My favorite summer dish would be deviled eggs. If I'm not making them for a party, I have to restrict myself to boiling one or 2 eggs at a time only otherwise, I'd eat the entire dozen in one sitting :)

Congrats on your milestone!

Congratulations on your 200 likes! Come on, really... what's not to like. I copied your aqua blue shell shadow box idea. That's the 1st thing people see when they enter my house and they rave about how cute it is. I can take no credit (except the shells inside of it :)
I'm gearing up for lots of fish tacos with fresh fruit salsa this summer. Nice & light & very tasty.

Hope to see ya soon.

The enchanted home said...

What a stunning dish! I could put that to soooo much use all summer long. Love it. As far as favorite summer dish, have so many but think my all time fave would have to be the good ol lobster roll! YUM! That epitomizes summer and there is nothing as good as really fresh lobster salad on a super fresh squishy hotdog roll...I am getting hungry just thinking about it! Hope I win:)

Shellbelle said...

Oh my gosh, I'm glad I didn't miss my chance to win the GORGEOUS dish!

My favorite summer recipe is for the Caribbean Shrimp Cocktail I posted last year. It was AMAZING! Now you've got me hungry for it, darn.

This serving dish would be perfect for crudites, shrimp with a basil butter sauce, oh so many things, but it would also be lovely to leave out with a few shells on display!

Good luck to everyone!

Beautiful Details said...

Beautiful dish Debbie and congrats on the 200 likes. I'm sure you have more by now. My favorite summer dish is when the family gets together and my sister-in-law makes her famous crab cakes, peel-n-eat shrimp, homemade coleslaw, fresh NC corn on the cob and a big salad which includes granny smith apples and feta cheese. Can't wait!

Debbie, that dish is gorgeous. I almost missed the giveaway.

I have many favorite summer dishes and as you may imagine, here in South Florida, the cooler the better. I would have to say all things salad but I remembered my mom's lobster salad and have to go with that. Delish.

Congratulations on your 200 likes. I hadn't realized you have a fb page too. Will link up. Come click on my fb page sometime as well.

Much love!!

Bren said...

Oh what a beautiful dish!!! I love your blog and blog hop over often. My favorite summer dish is probably a fresh fruit salad with melon balls, strawberries, and many other yummy cool fruit.
