Busy Bees

Labor Day weekend was full of parties.
After the big State Fair at EN3, we did
an intimate little dinner for four chez nouz.

 The "Post France" wine glasses  and bee serving platter were purchased 
from the gift shop at Gracie's Plant Works and were great filled
with a crisp and cold Pinot Grigio.  
The vintage graphics and bee skep were just what I was looking for 
to lend a shabby chic vibe.

 Embroidered bee napkins are cinched together with a
brass bee napkin ring.  The place card holders, cute little
painted chairs, look like the belong in a Lilliputian streetside bistro.

Amber water glasses from Artland Iris pick up the honey tones 
(get it?) of the embossed chargers and the distressed salad plates.

 Panko and parmesan-encrusted walleye fillets are 
destined to land on this gorgeous platter.

The table runner is supposed to replicate honeycomb.  Does it?

Faux sunflowers to add a bit of color down the middle of the table. 
Did you notice the script and the Fleur-de-lis on the back of the glasses?

Freshly picked heirloom tomatoes from my garden and blue cheese, drizzled
with balsamic and avocado oil on a 
bed of arugula from Northern Delicious CSA in Ely.  

A wonderfully relaxing dinner with friends
after a whirlwind party the night before.
Ahhhh....bon apetit!
