Bee Table for One

A few years ago, I found a plate at the Discovery Shop (the Cancer Society's Thrift Store) that I just had to have. I don't know why - I just fell in love with it. I brought it home thinking how pretty it would look on a table. And then it sat on a shelf. Well, Pat pulled it out yesterday and decided to use it. Here is what she came up with:

Pat chose gold flatware to bring out the gold in the accent plate

Pat wrapped this gold beaded napkin around a black napkin

Silk roses - although Pat grows gorgeous roses....well, used to grow....before the drought, 

Part of our black Depressionware collection that was given to us by our wonderful cousin

Where it came from:
Gold Charger - "Charge It!" by Jay from Tuesday Morning
Black Dinner Plate - "Fun Factory" by Waechtersbach from Replacements
Bee Accent Plate - by "Tim Coffey" of CreativeCo-Op from the Discovery Shop
Flatware - Unknown pattern by F.B. Rogers from eBay
Glassware - from Pier 1 years ago
Napkins - from Pier 1
Bee Napkin Ring - from the Ferndale Emporium (one of our favorite local boutiques)
Black Depressionware - a gift from our dishaholic cousin
Black Square Salt/Pepper Cellars - from World Market
Small Spoons - from Maryland China Company (mail order)
Candles and Silk Roses - Michael's

We will be joining Christine for her "Table it!" blog party Monday at Rustic & Refined:
We will also be joining Susan for "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. This is stunning! What a gorgeous bee plate and the table is amazing. You really have the best items and I think the Table for One is a favorite way to view a tablescape!

  2. Pat and Katie,
    Lovely Bee tablescape for one!!!
    I have another "bee"plate from the same designer. . .just one!!!
    Love, LOVE, L O V E the "bee" napkin ring!!!

  3. Wow, absolutely stunning table! The gold and black are so dramatic, they take my breath away and those bee dishes are just adorable!

  4. This immediately sent me looking for the bee plate. Available on Amazon as part of a 4 piece set - bee plate, bee skep, bird and bird nest. Also love the bee napkin holder. Great table. Thanks.

  5. Perfection! The gold accents really created an elegant look with the bee plate. The black accents add to the richness created here- love it!

  6. That plate is lovely and you have accentuated it perfectly. Score!
