Join me out on the porch today for a bee inspired table.
I named my store and my blog Beeutiful by Design
for two reasons: one because I love the inspiration the symbol
of the bee stands for achieving the impossible~bees are not supposed to be able to fly because
their body exceeds the weight their wings can lift; and two because
I try to live my life beautifully, which to me means with intention by surrounding myself
with things I find pleasing,
celebrating the blessings of family and friends,
and hopefully passing along some of my joy and inspiration
to others as well. I love collecting bee themed items.
When I started planning this table it was pretty bare and flat.
I started with the woven handled circle chargers, which are quite large.
Then I added the white bee chargers from One Kings Lane
and a set of four white and gold mid-century glasses.
Next comes my inspiration for the table, these green
bee plates from Anthropologie. I was pleased
how well the gold and white of the plates are almost
an exact match to the glasses!
Classic patterns never go out of style do they?
Next I added coral linen napkins (also from One Kings Lane-on sale 77% off)
with brass bee napkin rings ~ a gift from
my husband last see on the Burlap & Bees table.
Then I filled in the table with these vintage light green glass goblets
I think they look like depression glass, but I am not certain,
then these little bee votives from One Kings Lane
which are sold out but I linked you to similar selection,
were set on each side of the flower centerpiece.
This arrangement is a nice mix of summer fun!
I frequently shop at One Kings Lane,
because you pay once per month shipping
and they have awesome tabletop.
I am not compensated by any of these retailers
just sharing the love of bees with you guys!
Thanks for coming by to visit~
Make it a great week!
