Birds With Bees Dining

I have done several tablescapes with bees, birds, etc.  I put together this summery table with my bee plates and these cute bird plates I bought.  Green and yellow is so bright and uplifting.
The cute little birds share the color theme. I set this table on our pub table off the kitchen.
I started with the green tablecloth.

I found the plates at Ross for a few dollars.  The green goblets are from the Dollar store.

Flatware and the bee plates are from Horchow. Who says you can't mix inexpensive with expensive goods.  I am  also using my Chris Madden chargers I bought from JCPenney.  Unfortunately, they are discontinued.

I love this darling little bird cloche.  I added greenery, yellow roses and a candle to it.
I love using the battery safe and they make them with remotes or timers.

Sweet little green bird salt and pepper shakers.

These bee napkin rings I found online.

Here are the links to  my other bird tablescapes.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  The weather is cooling a bit.
Feeling pretty good. 
Still thinking about the RAI treatment for the thyroid. I had my thyroid removed last year due to cancer.  They recommend the RAI treatment to kill off any remaining thyroid tissue.
I had so much radiation, I thought it best for now to hold off on the treatment.

Just so some of you know....

    What a cheery and colourful table you've set, beaming with bright and happy tones. I can almost hear the birds chirping and the bees buzzing...beautiful!

    Have a wonderful week!


  4. What a wonderful talent you have for putting things together just right, Linda! Everything is just adorable and I've learned so much. Did not know about those high tech candles, how cool! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Love this Linda! The green tablecloth pops the yellow bee plates which I love. The centerpiece is so cute! The chargers add just the right touch.
    Wishing you ease of mind as to how to treat the thyroid.

  6. Beautiful table, beautiful thought about age. What an inspirational way of thinking. I am so happy and grateful that you shared it.

  7. It is really too bad those chargers are discontinued! I would love to have a few of those in my stash! The plates are perfect for the summer months! I love the bright, bright hue of the dinner plate.

    I don't like bees chasing me around the yard and deck, but they are beautiful on the table!

  8. What a happy tablescape, Linda!! Love the birds & the bees, as long as they aren't after me!! :)

  9. This table makes me smile and brings such a sense of happiness, Linda. It has everything - beautiful bright colours, a welcoming setting and just the right touch of whimsy - love it! You have such a great sense of style, my friend.
    You have pulled through all of radiation treatments like a champ and I know you can do this, too. After all, dear friend, you ARE Wonder Woman. Hugs and love to you. xoxo.
    PS. It will likely be Thursday before I get a chance to call. That's the first night I see having to myself, lol. Can hardly wait to catch up with you!

  10. Good evening, beautiful Linda!

    I just got home from my first meeting of the week before school starts next Monday. What a great summer, it's hard to think about starting school again, but each season has its gifts, and I'm counting my blessings. THANK GOD for the gift of your life dear Linda!

    Your tablescapes are just so welcoming. I know if I were at your table, I'd feel like a princess. Those bee napkin rings are PRECIOUS!

    I will be posting my writing tour post after school begins next week. I almost have it done!

    Enjoy a lovely evening, Anita

  11. Hi Linda,
    Your birds and bees theme is just darling! I love how you've mixed expensive and thrifty together. Those napkin rings are so cute!

  12. Beautiful birds and bees table, Linda! I love the color! very pleasant and cheerful. The napkin rings are just darling, love the plates....Christine

  13. You really know how to pull a look together. I love how you’ve mixed the expensive with the inexpensive and it all looks fabulous! The plates and the flatware colors are lovely and my favorites too.
    I hope you will be feeling better and stronger now that you are taking a break from the treatments. Thanks for the update too. Keeping you in my prayers always. Blessings and hugs..............

  14. What a beautiful table you have set! Wish I lived close by, so that I could pop over and share a tea luncheon with you. I love Ross! It's my favorite store. I always find so many wonderful deals there.

    Wow, Linda, I had no idea you had been battling thyroid cancer. I hope and pray EVERY single trace of cancer is gone from your body forever. What a hateful disease that is!


  15. Those bee plates are so pretty!! xx

  16. What a cheery table setting! Those bee plates are so cute. My niece has a black and white kitchen and has some bee accents in it. She would love these plates. Praying for strength as you heal from your previous radiation treatments.

  17. Hi Linda, I love your table settings and every detail is so charming. You always create the most inviting tables with your amazing talent. I am sorry you have battled cancer but so happy you are doing good and decided to hold off on more radiation. Saying prayers for your health and break from the treatments. God bless you with better days ahead.
    Sending hugs your way!

  18. I have always loved those chargers, sorry I missed out:( Your new birds and bees table is so pretty. Love that cloche too. BTW, I am still not getting an e-mail notification of my own posts. Just wanted to let you know. Is there anything I can do to fix that????

  19. The bee plates are my favorite. They make a perfect companion to the Ross salad plates. The flatware, wine glasses, and the tablecloth are lovely contrasts to the yellow of the bee plates. Very pretty.

  20. O, I love those cute bee plates. Everything looks amazing.
    I value my age, too. :)

  21. Linda! Thank you so much for your visit to my blog and for your sweet comments. I love your tablescape! The little bird salt and pepper shakers are so cute!

  22. What a happy, sunny table, Linda. I'd love to join you! Every detail is beautiful. Buzzzzz!

  23. As usual, absolutely beautiful, Linda! I have seen green glasses at our dollar tree, and if I tried to use them, they would look exactly like they came from dollar tree. Not yours!! They look stunning. I think you just talked me into getting some. Have a great day, and I hope all is well with you.

  24. Absolutely gorgeous. I love the details.

  25. Hi lovely lady.
    Your tablescape are just so welcoming. You always know how to put them all together for us. God Bless.

  26. I wish I had your talent for creating beautiful spaces, especially tables.

    You must own several sets of dishes.

  27. Just catching up on my blog reading, Linda! Your tablescape is beautiful. Love the color bright and cheery!

  28. God Bless you. You're like my Dad who celebrates each day he wakes. He's in remission now but you never know when the Big C will rear it's ugly head again as you know to well.

    Love the table setting!
