I gathered some blooming dishes and flowers for a little tabletop fun
in the Potting Shed in anticipation of Valentine’s Day!
Embossed salad plates are abuzz with a bee skep design. . .
And transferware in shades from pink to red provide some seasonal color and blooms, ideal for celebrating a holiday filled with hearts and flowers.
Stamped spoons are buzzing with bee inspiration and notes to self:
*Bee* Happy, *Bee* Grateful, Just *Bee*
And *Bee* Kind.
Garden Gloves hold a napkin and bee flatware.
A set of four Spode botanical plates were freshly picked from a favorite antique mall.
Spode Archive Collection ‘Blue Rose’
Spode Archive Collection Jasmine
Spode Archive Collection ‘British Flowers – Rosa’
And Spode Archive Collection ‘British Flowers – Poppy’
Join me for tea with the bees. . .
We’re pouring tea from a bee skep embossed pot. . .
And sipping from a blooming teacup.
You can sweeten your tea with your choice and rainbow collection of honey, and gift assortment from Trader Joe’s.
My husband’s grandmother’s pink Crown Ducal Bristol plates make an appearance in February.
You can see them at a Romantic Table for Two with an edible centerpiece and wine chiller with rose petal ice cubes, here.
Queen’s Chelsea Toile plates add some romantic countryside scenery. . .
And my husband’s grandmother’s pitcher and coffee pot are blooming with hand-painted roses and provide vases for flowers.
