Invite Nora Fleming to Your Table


Jane, Nora and Cheryl at the Atlanta Gift Show!

 There’s something special that happens when the hostess of a party pays attention to the  display as well as the menu.  Recently, a longtime friend hosted a dessert and game night  for her lady friends.  Her table and buffet were beautifully set with yummy goodies and  drinks.  But what stopped me in my tracks was the creative displays she used serving her  food.  The time and thought my friend gave to this gathering made all of us feel special and  the evening was a great success!

Wide variety of platters and minis to choose from.

Entertaining can be intimidating for some of us.  Not only preparing the food, but presenting it can seem daunting; and keep us from hosting our family and friends.  However, easy entertaining is right at hand with Nora Fleming serving-ware.


Brother and Sister working together to create these adorable serving pieces!

This brother-sister team has created customizable serving platters easily used for any holiday or season.  Both agree that their team works to achieve one goal…to bring joy to every table and event.

What makes me so excited about this product is the fun, colorful minis.  Each serving piece is created with a hole, to insert a mini, reflecting the occasion. Party ends…the mini comes off for storage.  A keepsake box which stores the minis is also a part of Nora’s line.

Keepsake Box Makes a Great Gift!

I think its fun to own unique pieces for entertaining and an easy gift for my family members.  You can check out our line of Nora Fleming in Sweet Bee. We carry the serving pieces and a large selection of minis.  Spot a mini you really like?  You might want to purchase it now instead of waiting.  Nora does retire minis, while creating new ones for her fans.

Let’s celebrate the end of winter…

and the start of warmer weather!

Only a few more days until Spring.  Are you ready for entertaining?

It’s easy if Nora is at your table!



March into Spring!

Spring Is Coming!

I’ve already spotted a dozen robins, their orange breasts bringing welcome color to an all white backdrop. My family’s maple trees have been tapped and are ready for the first thaw, enough warmth to trigger the flow of nature’s sweet sap. March, robins, and maple syrup- to me those are the signals of spring, even though the official start is not quite here yet. All of us are eagerly awaiting our own start to spring. Whisking away the last winter greens, storing the plaid afghans and blankets for next fall’s arrival, and deciding a little spring cleaning is just what is needed, is a great start. But, now it’s time to welcome spring to our doors. I firmly believe in changing out the look of my doors for each season. This winter I hung a mirror with a swag of winter greens and a bow…a quick change to twigs, creamy blossoms, and a nest…and my mirror reflects the coming of spring!


How do you want to welcome guests at your door? A simple wreath of greens, or one filled with the colorful flowers of spring? Wreaths of many different looks are now appearing at the store. Choose one already crafted or have one created in your style and colors. We have many wreaths ready for you on display; and many are marching out the door already! Or, if you have an old wreath that just needs a little “tweeking” stop in and see us. We can add some fun new flowers or greenery to freshen it up; and help you create a great welcome for your guests.

A beautiful wreath is an instant wake up call to all, that spring is arriving at our doors!


Merry Christmas!

It seems as though we were just finishing the leftover turkey and here it is Christmas Eve!  The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas seems to shrink each year. These past several weeks have been filled with countless tasks…decorating the trees, shopping for family and friends, baking the traditional goodies, writing Christmas cards, getting those gifts wrapped and under the tree…I could continue but all of us understand the frenzy that goes into making Christmas in our homes.

Whatever your traditions for this holiday, take some time to enjoy your family and friends, and relax in the warmth of your home.

Wishing you peace, joy, and all this holiday has to offer.
