A BEEutiful Summer Table

Our daughter, Tracy,  SIL Dave , and Colleen came over today to see Tata's new hip:) Colleen brought him balloons and a card and was fascinated with his BIG bandage. After they left and I cleaned up, I decided to set a new table since I had emptied the table after lunch. Here is our new table...for awhile! I wanted to do black and white and yellow so I thought BEES!
 I went outside and got some yellow zinnias from the garden.
 These beehive canisters are the BEES KNEES:)
 The bird S and P sit on a black and white bird plate.
 2 plates are nestled together for part of the centerpiece.
 A bee sits in one of the topiaries.

 Of course we have to have our bee glasses too!
 I laid a patterned black and white placemat over a solid yellow one.

 The flowered embroidery on the corner of the placemat is a good match to the inside of the bowl.
 I gathered a black and white patterned napkin with a solid yellow.

We will enjoy this table for a few weeks I'm sure. I will be sharing at these great parties:


  1. It is definitely a beeutiful table, Pinky!

  2. Love the yellow, black and white and the bee theme. I hope hubby is doing well post surgery. Hard to get through the first couple of weeks but usually things get much better.

  12. Pinky, I always love the bees coming from the Beehive state! Such a pretty setting to add the starkness of black to it. It is elegant and so fun for summer.

  13. Lovely Tablescape! Bees make such adorable decorations and I love the black, white and yellow. Summertime is in full swing at your home!

  14. I'm always drawn to anything black and white, and the pop of yellow is perfect for summer, and it's all definitely BEEutiful Pinky! I love the vertical stacked plates as part of the centerpiece~

  15. Wonderful colour combination - so striking! You've combined a lot of terrific elements in a very pleasing manner. I've used multiple tablecloths, multiple napkins, multiple runners all at the same time but why, have I not thought of layering placemats??? Thanks for the great tip - your black/yellow ones look fantastic! I'm sure your daughter and family will be wanting to come back for lunch again soon when they get wind of this t'scape! Hope your hubby is on the road to recovery.
