Botanical Bliss: Naturally inspired tablesetting



Imagine sitting down at the table to find a butterfly on your napkin, green moss under
your plate, bees swarming above and birds perched on your glass. And they all make
you smile. The butterfly is a napkin ring, the sheets of florist’s moss, transforms the
table into a woodland landscape, the bees are from the beehive lantern and the birds
are porcelain.



Butterflies, blossoms, and other botanical motifs bring nature's beauty to the table.
Host a springtime lunch in the garden or backyard. Bright table linens, whimsical botanical
decorations and a few nature-inspired accents make for a setting that infused with new life.

Spare tulips suit the sculptural look of this nature-inspired vase).

at night).

Just came across your blog today. Love your ideas for wedding registry gifts. Our wedding party will be outdoors and the beehive lanterns are ideal. Too bad I can't put them on MY registry...

I love the idea of having plotted plants for the weddings favors! Thanks for the inspiration! I'm getting married in September, I even got some custom printed champagne glasses for the wedding party. They came out great.
