There’s no chatter or gossip going on, just a whole lot of laboring . . .
being done together and alone.
Did you know . . .
Do you ever feel, as I do, that your daily contributions and efforts are possibly making any difference in the world or to others?
If we take this simple example of nature and compare it with ourselves the answer is YES!
You are making a difference ONE. DROP. AT. A. TIME.
After observing these busy little bees for a few days I began to think of how I could use my little drops and I instantly knew just how to go about it.
So I gathered my white, yellow and black linens . . . (I layered my table first with a white table clothe, then layered a smaller yellow on top followed by a black and white table runner).
I then pulled out all my black and white dishes and began mixing and matching. (remember your plates don’t have to be matchy-matchy, just have fun with it)
After laying down my table runner and placing the plates around the table I began creating my center piece.
Which consisted of a bee engraved cake plate which I placed a vines wreath on and then a candle, a honey pot, and little bees here and there.
A black and white tea pot, and decorative bee plate . . .
And then I start adding the magic of fresh flowers (mini yellow roses were placed in the tea pot and yellow and white daisies were placed in my vintage white vases)
Until . . . in just all comes together.
Then back to the place settings . . .
Playing around with the mixture of black, white and a bit of yellow.
This color scheme just speaks for itself . . . saying “I’m full of JOY!
As usual I like to add a few vignettes around my house to enhance the theme.
One being the dessert table . . .(this is a honeycomb cake mold, I’ll be sharing the recipe tomorrow)
Another I placed the Bee book, another honeycomb candle and mini honey pot inside my vintage bird cage.
And the other was a setting with a cake plate stacked with mini jars of honey, a brass bee plaque, candles, and honey pot.
(The mini jars of honey I purchased at hobby lobby as well as the bee fabric, which I simply cut with pinking sheers and added local grown honey and my homemade tags . . . this gift to take home)
As well as their mini picture frames which were placed by their individual plates . . .
Both a simple reminder that we do spread goodness and love one drop and a time by being JOYFUL!
As always my friends, thanks for dropping by. Have a most wonderful day.
