Tablescape Thursday~Bumble Bees and Wildflowers~

Hey Guys! I hope you are all having a great week!! I decided to join Susan at Between Naps On The Porch this week for tablescape Thursday. Please go by and pay her and the other participants a visit. I'm sure there will be plenty of beautiful spring tablescapes this week! I look forward to checking them all out.
This tablescape did not turn out as I had planned...I had black and yellow in mind until I set the bumble bee container on the table. Then I decided to use the coral and green along with the black and yellow. Sometimes things don't turn out as planned but end up working out anyway!

I found the bumble bee napkins and container at Dallas Market and thought they were just too cute!
See the little bumble bees on the flower? As you can tell I love the airy wildflower look!

I think my silverware is in the right place this time! lol...


Thank you for checking out my tablescape!
P.S....The raised garden is finally done! The rain held us off for a while, but hubby finished and we got everything planted tonight. I will post pictures on Saturday... so please check back.

I love the bees! I've been gathering things to do my own bee tablescape. Your table came out so cute. I think we often start with one thought and then by the time the table is done is totally different. :)

Hugs,

Blogging is making me love things I didn't know I loved. Bees being one of them (roosters too). I love the container and the napkins...your table is lovely. I think the best tablescapes are the ones that create themselves as you go along!

When we evaluate the term the phrase appreciate, with relation to an amorous association with another, but as the sensing that may be engendered should you have miltchmonkey an improved connection on your own very * as well as as being a a feeling of bigger oneness spouse and children as well as the human race -- then it gets substantially more extra ordinary that every everyone wants in everyday life is adore.
