Bee Themed Tablescape for Two

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!

Rebecca 🙂

  1. Love your table and the tray from Home Goods. We have to celebrate the bee for the sake of all the beautiful flowers. I don’t care if that large piece is a fly, super cute.

  2. I am jealous of your adorable alfresco table, as I live were we are still getting frost on the ground each morning!! You have set such a quaint table with the white picket planter filled with forsythia, it just sings spring. I think I would have snapped up those cute bee bowls had I seen them! And such a deal!! Love the tray too!❤️🐝

  3. Rebecca, your alfresco table is buzzing with delightful details. I personally love to see shadows. Your photos are well done! I’m wild about bees and bamboo, so your tray caught my attention immediately. I’ll need to keep my eyes open, and perhaps I’ll find one. This has been a fun hop!

  4. Wonderful bee table Rebecca. We both have that bee tray. Such cute bee bowls too. The DT Stems are lovely.
    Dining alfresco is always a treat. How special to have your vintage bee. I also appreciate your rattan. Always a pleasure to join you on these fabulous hops.

  5. So delightful Rebecca, the outdoor setting with bright forsythia is perfect for your bee themed table for 2! Isn’t it fun to shop around for themed things, and such a thrill when you find something…like your melamine bee tray, I love that! I have enjoyed this bee blog hop so much I had to paint a bee pitcher this afternoon, I just had to have something with bees 😂

  6. Rebecca, a bee-utiful alfresco table, set for you and your honey! I’m so envious your outdoor dining option. Here in Pittsburgh we’ve had to bring the hanging ferns in nightly with overnight temps in the low 35-42 degrees! Thank goodness I haven’t gotten to planting flowers in pots yet. Crushing over that bee tray! Can’t believe its melamine — it looks like a high end piece of vintage tableware. Wish they had it at my HG, sigh. Thanks for sharing your table styling talents on the hop my friend!

  7. Rebecca, I’m with you on the difficulties of tables settings outside. It can be vexing! But I rather like the way the sun dapples on the table. It feels natural and organic. That vintage gift from your mom works well with all the other elements. The napkin pattern and color is something I would love to have in my collection, and they work to tie in all the other green and yellow colors.
    It all makes a lovely alfresco setting for mid spring.

  8. I love your alfresco bee-themed table Rebecca! The yellow and green are such a wonderful combination for spring and tie together bee-utifully with your wonderful bee tray! I know exactly how challenging it is to photograph a table outdoors…too sunny, too overcast, too blustery, too HOT, etc.! I happen to love the little shadows dancing across your table, especially the forsythia one on your yellow plate. As always it’s a treat to join you at the table and hop with you. Happy Wednesday ♥

  9. How spring-y, Rebecca! All your items you found and combined for this table are a handsome mix. Linda had the same platter and I complimented hers just as I will yours – I love it! I have those same DT stems, and that color just seems to go with so much. The bee bowls and your vintage guy command attention! I do believe forsythia are most favorite harbinger of spring’s arrival, and I wish their blooms would last all season long, they are such a happy sight! Your tablecloth and grass beyond just meld into each other. I’m happy you joined the fun today. It’s bee-n a pleasure to bee in your company once again!
