Bee and Lemons Display

Since Paul, my handy dandy husband added shelving to the outdoor buffet, I thought I would decorate it for spring.  I also have plans  for a Cinco de Mayo dinner party on the patio.

Paul built this outdoor buffet island years ago. It has been so nice for buffet style serving.  The large round copper table accommodates 8 people. 

This is the patio area near the buffet island.  Paul recently re-covered these sling back chairs. Paul built the curved trellis years ago and planted the wisteria.  Lady Bank roses are climbing the side yard fence.

Lemon topiaries flank the two tall white vases I recently bought from ZGallerie.
I chose to use the cabbage leaf placemats along with the yellow bee plates and topped with the green bee salad plate.

The bees are buzzing and loving the pretty blooms in our backyard right now.
Happy Earth Day everyone. Mother Nature has surrounded us in beauty and we need to do our part in keeping this planet clean.

Every April 22, we celebrate this special day. Walk through the woods, work in the garden or just buying earth friendly products. The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970.  Today is a day to increase awareness of environmental problems. many communities get together to clean up litter, plant trees or reflect on the beauty of nature.

We have lots of lavender to make the bees happy.

Cute little bee napkin rings are enclosing the lemon napkins.

Paul has also added lantern for night entertaining.  He is switching over to low voltage.

I had this Schnauzer gate built years ago for Paul's birthday.  A very talented neighbor, who recently passed away built the gate for Paul. Boxwood hedges line the paved walkway to the front.  You can see the Pool Cabana beyond the gate.
Make every day Earth Day.
