Mother Nature Party

I so wanted to take part in the Grits and Glamour Wild About Mother Nature Party so I reprised one of my all time favorite nature inspired posts.





Changed up my dining table display to a collection of warm yellows and all things bees. Our yard here is abuzz with all our citrus in bloom.



I found this sweet little pillow on a clearance rack at a favorite haunt.


You can't have bees without a bee skep.






A sweet little watering can holds golden flowers.

I love the battery operated flicker candles available now. Safe to burn when you have a little one in the house and they last forever.

Donnie said...

That is so cute. I love the flicker candles too since we live in a small space. Bet you get some sweet comments about your vignette.

This is such a sweet vignette! The beehive is my favorite.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

This is the cutest vignette! You would love the wallpaper in my powder room. It is called The Beekeeper's Toile. It has bee skeps all over it!!!

Cindy said...

I love your collection of bee stuff. It all looks so good together. I looked at your kitchen posts, and it is so cute! I really like the red.

Hi,

I'm your newest follower. I saw your posts on Tablescape Thursday. I have a bee skep displayed on an old farm style table in my kitchen; I really love it. And I have to tell you -- I hunted for months to find one. They're hard to find around here for some reason. I also agree with you about the strange home decor styles at the moment (ugh!). I just took a tour of your 50's kitchen and it is just charming. I'll have to share this with my parents; they would love it. I think it's so neat that everything is original.

I didn't do a tablescape this week because my son is home from college on Spring Break, but I am planning one for next Thursday for sure. I really enjoy doing St. Patrick's Day tables.

Enjoy your weekend.

Denise

Entertaining Women said...

I've been waffling about whether or not to buy an old Mottahedeh brass bee skep that I think would look amazing as a centerpiece for a tablescape. I think that you just made up my mind. Thank you for sharing your wonderful design. Cherry Kay

Oh that vignette is delightful! Love the little herb pillow you found and the bee keep and actually just everything that goes into your vignette. I am a country girl, who doesn't live in the country so I especially love this, makes me homesick for country roads and I love the honey the bees make. Thank so much for sharing this delightful post. I am your newest follower. Blessings

Jann Olson said...

Love your sunny yellow vignette! I have always loved bee skeps. I had a large one out in the garden for years. It finally fell apart. A couple of years ago I bought another while vacationing at Williamsburg. Haven't dared take it outside yet. Love it too much! I live in UT. It is known as the beehive state.
Hugs,
Jann

Looks like Spring...very pretty! ♥

mississippi artist said...

Your tablescape is adorable. It makes me think of Spring. I have not tried the candles, I must get some, as I am a danger to all with the real ones!

Nook and Cranny said...

I just love your vignette. This reminds me of beautiful weather to come our way here in New England.
Thanks for sharing.

This is an adorable arrangement, Elaine!

Babs said...

Your bee skep vignette is darling.
Good idea with the flameless candles.I have four with timers which I like a lot. I do prefer real candles, but sometimes they just aren't safe or practical. Cute post.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

so darling~

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

I love and appreciate bees because we garden so I adore your bee display. Love so many aspects such as the skep, the cute little pillow, the little watering can, etc. I am so envious that you can grow citrus. Our winters are too cold here, but I have considered keeping one in a pot and overwintering it in a storage building.

Alycia Nichols said...

Being a total city girl, I had never heard the term "bee skep." I Googled it, and now I have learned something new today thanks to your fun tablescape! Very nice...and perfect for the Wild About Mother Nature party!

Aledia said...

Happy Valentines Day!
