Sweetest Day brings the vibrant life of a garden to your table. Charmingly casual with the fresh feel of a summer day, a honeycomb border buzzes with activity with bees and blooms of red, orange, and blue flowers.
Yellow check napkins are tied with a picot edge ribbon and in lieu of napkin rings, just-picked blossoms of yellow bidens and blue lobelia, flower on the bows.
A playful plaid tablecloth provides a colorful landscape for the dinnerware, used at the table previously with a harvest of veggies and reliable seeds.
Quattro Stagioni canning jars were discovered at an unlikely apiary, T.J. Maxx, a couple of months ago, so I made a beeline for the check out counter!
The bee skep design is ideal for a
just-picked bouquet from the garden.
Crafted of stoneware, Sweetest Day Dinnerware is as hard-working as a bee busily gathering nectar. A cake plate provides a pedestal for a bee skep as a centerpiece for the table.
A flowering vase of slender arching Gooseneck Loosestrife, Black-eyed Susans, and Queen Anne’s Lace grace each place setting for a sweet and cottage-style bouquet.
I couldn’t resist gilding the lily
or in this case the bee skep. . .
. . .Adding a few blooms to
sprout from the top!
A soup/cereal bowl holds 24 ounces when it’s not playfully serving as a pedestal for a mini bee skep :)
