The picture was taken in my sister's apple orchard, which originally belonged to our grandfather. My grandfather always had beehives in the orchard; so the beehives reminded me of my grandfather too. The thermos was grandpa's and he carried a lunch pail much like the one you see.
There always were Franciscan apple plates in the family. The cookies are Oatmeal Apple, a recipe developed by my aunt. This tea table was set in rememberance.
Happy Memorial Day! Remember those that have gone before us and remember those that have fought for the country that you live in.

Love the table. I have the same Franciscan pattern. We've had it for 31 years from when we originally found it is its 12-piece place setting with assessories entirety, in a Riverside, CA antique and collectors shop.
