Welcome the 208th Tablescape Thursday!
The daisies and a few of the mums from last week’s bridal shower tablescape were still hanging in there, so I couldn’t resist using them in another setting. Hope you enjoy.
Whatever a man’s age, he can reduce it several years by putting a bright-colored flower in his buttonhole.
Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemmons-1835-1910)-American humorous writer
Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.
Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out-values all the utilities of the world.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
Tis my faith that every flower enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth, “Lines Written in Early Spring,” Lyrical Ballads, 1798
I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.
~William Shakespeare-A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Sunflower plates are from Pier 1, several years ago.
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful that thorns have roses.
~Alphonse Karr (1808-1890) French novelist
God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December.
~James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937)-Scottish novelist
Sunflower napkins were a thrifty find while out antiquing/thrifting.
Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.
~Henry Ward Beecher, Star Papers: A Discourse of Flowers
Bee Flatware is available at Horchow or Neiman Marcus.
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.
The knife has a tiny bee on the top edge of the handle. Love using these with the bee flatware.
Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair.
~Susan Polis Shutz
“I must have flowers, always, and always.”
