Now that Spring is here, it’s time to recognize our bee friends with tables set in their honor! I’m thrilled to join the Bee-utiful Table Settings Blog Hop, hosted by my friend Debbee from Debbee’s Buzz. For my part, I’ve created an al fresco Bee Themed Tablescape for Two.
If you’re buzzing by after a visit with Linda from Life and Linda, welcome! I just love how she combined bees and sunflowers on her table! There are links to all of the lovely table settings at the bottom of this post.
My inspiration came from a pair of bee bowls that I found at HomeGoods. They were $3 each on the clearance shelf. Because there were only 2 left, I decided to set a table for 2 instead of my usual setting for four.
I also picked up these yellow melamine plates that came in a set of 4 for $10. I had the green tablecloth and floral napkins in my stash.
I was thrilled to find this melamine bee tray, also at HomeGoods. I love the bamboo trim, which coordinated well with my rattan chargers.
The green wine glasses are a favorite Dollar Tree find!
For my “side” centerpiece, I filled my DIY Picket Fence Planter Box with faux forsythia blossoms.
Of course, I couldn’t set a table without something vintage! This metal guy may actually be a fly rather than a bee, but he seemed at home on the table with the others.
He was another gift from my mom. His wings lift up to reveal a storage compartment. Let me know if you’ve ever seen one before!
This was just my second time photographing an outdoor tablescape. My Late Summer Tablescape in the Garden was definitely less challenging than this Bee Themed Tablescape. Although it was a sunny day, it was quite windy and I struggled with shadows.
But it was still lots of fun to set a pretty table on my front lawn. My daughter and her friend were even hiding under the table at times lol!
Now it’s time to visit all of the other Bee-utiful Table Settings! I’m the last stop on the hop, but if you’re just joining in now, go back to the top and start with our hostess, Debbee of Debbee’s Buzz. She is the queen of unique napkin folds!
Until next time!
