Is anyone else finding it hard to *bee*lieve that Thanksgiving is Thursday?
I’m taking a little time out this week to *bee* thankful
and in the Potting Shed for a little tabletop fun.

I love all things ‘bee’ and this Bee Thankful Sign
is a fun seasonal reminder to count my blessings.
Discarded and broken garden tools are a nod to worker bees. They’re paired with
a harvest of pumpkins, dried hydrangeas, maiden grass plumes and small garden pots.
Tools are buzzing with bee magnets. . .
As well as a beehive shaped watering can hanging over the window,
paired with some ears of Indian corn.
I was all abuzz when I spied these
Bee Sweet plates designed by Susan Winget.
La Rochere Goblets are buzzing with bees. . .
Along with Napoleon Bee flatware.
We should *bee* thankful for our pollinators as without them there would be no
pumpkins or pumpkin pie or sweet potatoes
and sweet potato casserole at the Thanksgiving table!
And without the bees there would be no cranberries, apples, Brussels sprouts,
squash, green beans, broccoli, nuts, carrots and onions for Thanksgiving or anytime!

Your table looks fun! And even though the calendar says it’s Thanksgiving, it won’t feel like it as most of my family won’t be joining us this year. But thanks to your inspirational tablescapes, my dining room table is decorated for fall and hubby and I will enjoy it on Thursday. Happy Thanksgiving Mary!
Fun. I especially like the stenciled shovel
For all things “bee” grateful everyday. I am grateful for your blog – always bringing fresh ideas.
I love that you are still creating in the potting shed in November! The shadow play is terrific. Actually, I spotted a blooming forsythia just yesterday (how strange is that? And irises too!), so it’s good to see what straggler bees I also see. Your mix of textures and collections set a fine display, as always.
Happy Thanksgiving, Mary. I’m sure thankful to have blogs like yours to entertain and inspire, especially this year!
Adorable as always. I have wanted a “fun” set of dishes for quite awhile but usually tell me myself that is silly – after all it’s just me and hubby. But lately I have been saying .. get what you want(within reason of course) and enjoy now … yes I am spending my kids inheritance ( using that word loosely but I am sure you get my idea. So I think it might be bee.. utiful bee dishes for me. Love to start my day with you. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
As always, your ideas are endless. Beautiful Thanksgiving table!
I am so thankful for your morning posts. You are an inspiration to us all………
Bee still my heart! I ADORE your collection of bee dishes and accessories. What a wonderful message and timely post with Thanksgiving this week. We should be thankful for bees and savor this last week of fall before rushing into Christmas. Thank you Mary, wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving! 🐝🦃🍁🍂🧡
Mary, Thanks for brightening my morning coffee time. I am lusting after your bee plates but I just do not have the room for any more dishes😁 The weather here in N.C has been more summer like than Thanksgiving but we got all our leads raked up, the gutters cleaned and all my spring bulbs planted. Today I am going to tackle looking into some of my Christmas stash as this weekend will be the,time we decorate. After my husband and I have our quiet Thanksgiving feast sans usual family, we will watch football,take a nap and enjoy the day. Black Friday will be a day of packing up our fall decor and cleaning before we put up Christmas..In this difficult time for our country the more lights the better! A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
Mary, I’m having a really difficult time believing it’s Thanksgiving! Your potting shed setting is beautiful. Love your sign! Every time I see a bee related item at HomeGoods, it reminds me of you! Your plates, glasses, and flatware are so pretty but your napkins are a favorite! They’re so cute! Love the fold. Using the dried hydrangeas, maiden grasses, etc. made a wonderful centerpiece. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Mary!
Good Morning Mary!
I needed this beautiful array of Bee Love this morning. A lovely start to my day. And so fun to see your shed!
Happy Thanksgiving dear friend!
Thank you Mary! It’s always a joy to see your tablescapes. BEE SAFE and Happy Thanksgiving 🦃
Thank you, Mary, for your Bee-u-tiful table in the potting shed, and for the ways that bees provide for us. Happy Thanksgiving week to you!
You know I share your bee love, but bee thankful is such a perfect holiday twist! I have a loquat tree in full bloom feeding hundreds of confused but happy freezing bees I pass every morning which keeps them fresh in my mind, your tribute is adorable! Spent the weekend cutting a pad for my greenhouse, I can’t wait to have my own room to honor the bees whenever I want!
Happy Thanksgiving. I am grateful to you and all the other ladies connected with you. I have been following all of you since before covid, but during this time you have helped me safe my sanity. You are all so gracious and giving of time and talent. I wish I could enter the contest, but I do not do any social media. That is okay, because you give so much on a daily basis. Kathryn
I love this thanksgiving theme! I also enjoy all of your posts. Happy Thanksgiving
Do you rent out that potting shed for the weekends, because I would really like to live there. ;-)
oh to bee in love. i love your taste in dishes and i would love the give-a-way .i wish you, mary, and all your fans a very happy thanksgiving
Love this Mary! ♥️🐝♥️Anytime the potting shed gets to “bee” on display, makes my heart sing. I still have out my bee hive pitcher and platter with 2 small bee hive book ends that prop up my favorite cookbooks on the counter. I just ordered a Wallace Napolean set of flatware for myself as hubby has special utensils he uses since his stroke. I really don’t need any more flatware, but I have always loved these and thought I can use them for me whenever! Hehe. Yes, we are grateful to our bee friends for all their hard work and blessings us with such wonderful gifts! Thankful for you as well, Happy Tahnksgiving! ♥️🐝♥️
I love your blog and I am happy to follow you as well as Crown Linens and Arte Italica! I get inspired by all of the beautiful designs you post and I am grateful for the links to the products! I just ordered the Bee magnets and set of 4 Bee salad plates. I am loving the round ruffled place mats from Crown Linens.
Happy Thanksgiving you and yours!
thank you for BEEing such a blessing to so many of us. I am so thankful for YOU
Wishing you and yours a HAPPY,BLESSED THANKSGIVING

Mary, the potting shed is so lovely in November. Love those bee plates. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
JUST BEE U TIFUL!!!! Love the Bees on everything.
Love love love the black and white table settings. And as usual your photographs are beautiful. Best blog for ideas and domestic fantasies. I just finished making 12 of the paper-crafted cornucopies and it was so much fun. I just popped them in the mail to my kiddos so even though we can’t be together this Thanksgiving they’ll have something fun. Hope you and your family have a lovely and peaceful Thanksgiving Day. :-)
Love the BEES!!!🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝
I absolutely Love the “Bee” watering can. My granddaughter is getting married October 2021, and I have already purchased the Wallace stainless flatware and plan to get the striped napkins. Please let me know where these pieces are available !
Enjoy a safe and Peaceful Thanksgiving with as many Dear ones as you can !
That is the most loved shelf in the country ! You never fail to surprise us. If I had to pick one thing (and it’s hard) I love the napkin rights.
Such a delightful combo of your favorite things Mary, bees, Fall and Thanksgiving! The soft colors and the blend of elements is indeed a feast for the eyes! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving, with a beautiful day to enjoy your lake views!
Love the bee table and as always, love your shed. We will be home as always for Thanksgiving. All our family is scattered over the US and some overseas, and since travel is so expensive and we have limited time off, we stay home. I grew up in a military (Navy) family and we were always somewhere that made travel difficult. That distance, though, didn’t mean we weren’t thinking about the rest of our family members and enjoying cards and letters from them. Keeping family in one’s heart is important and more so in these trying times. God gives us the strength to see each day to the end so we’ll be rejoicing Thursday with the rest of our family, just won’t be all in the same room or house.
Hope everyone will have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Hi Mary, I am very attracted (like “bees to honey”) by the color palette you used! Charcoal, maize, hints of burnt orange. It is unique and cozy. Thank you once again for such great ideas … I’ve enjoyed watching your pretty little potting shed change costumes over the years, each one more beautiful than the last.
I made 12 of your paper cornucopias craft. So fun! And they were very well received when I buzzed around and delivered them to friends yesterday. Thanks for the idea!
How fun Melody! Thanks for letting me know and Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🐝
