Honey Bee La Cherry! (T)

The metal chargers ground the look for this very casual table.  I used a lot of my favorites for this one!
I adore this tablecloth.  With it’s lemons, apples, grapes, strawberries and cherries done in a very retro style I can’t help but love it!  I've used this tablecloth before for one of my all time favorite tables called Cheery Cherry Blue that you can see "here"
I cut several of my Annabelle Hydrangea stems and clustered them into this large mason jar.  I popped in some yellow day lilies and a few of my red geraniums.  I used alum to dip the hydrangea stems into so I hope they'll last a good while.  Only thing though the clear water got milky looking and I didn't expect that.  
Cherries  are being harvested around our area so I decided I'd pull out my favorite cherry glasses and my honeybee dishes. Bees are the primary pollinators that the orchards rely on.  These green checked napkins are real favorite which added another casual layer.

You might enjoy seeing this video.  This is how they get the cherries off the trees with a 
"cherry shaker"  This is from a local farm.

The cherry glasses came from a local store- no brand name.

These day lilies are called Sunday Gloves.  They are such a delicate pale yellow color with a soft rippled edge, truly a favorite of mine.

I hope you enjoyed my Honey Bee La Cherry tablescape!
A recent cherry pie I made!  I use a plastic lattice pie dough cutter to make the pattern.  Here is a link to one just like mine "lattice pie top cutter" This is the "pie filler "I use- no need to do anything but add it to the shell and bake.  I like it better than any other I've used because it has more cherries and the flavor is fabulous.



  1. I love your casual table, Liz! From the vintage tablecloth to those adorable honeybee plates, down to the garden flowers (L♥VE that Sunday glove day lily!) and cherry pie - it all looks so inviting!

  2. Liz, what a beautiful and happy table! The pretty tablecloth makes the perfect underpinning. The sweet cherry glasses and bee plates are the perfect finishing touch!!!

  4. Liz, your tables are always lovely. I really love your retro tablecloth, so charming along with your pretty pieces. I've never seen a "cherry shaker machine." So clever and I'm sure efficient! How interesting to use alum on the hydrangea blossom. Now, I want a piece of that cherry pie. ♥

  9. Temptress!!! Cherry pie 🥧 is one of my favorites, and I’ve not had any all summer long! Now you’ve flipped the switch, and I’m going to HAVE TO bake one!!! I will personally blame YOU as I’m blowing out my shins trying to walk it off!!!😉 This tablescape is perfection for summer! It has a wonderful retro look that for some reason reminds me of the movie “Pleasntville” with Toby McGuire. THIS IS SUCH A HAPPY TABLESCAPE!!!!!

  10. Well, of course I love this! Honey, cherries, and pie. What's not to love? It's all just delightful! Thanks for sharing with SYC. I will be featuring you tomorrow.
