Magnolia Blossom – a Poem, a Tablescape

Magnolia Blossom

by Patricia Neely-Dorsey ©2013

Magnolia Blossom

She is a delicate flower

Magnolia Table Decor

Dressed in white, like a blushing bride

Place Setting

Open wide with possibility;

Blossom in Candlelight

She is the epitome of Southern charm

Across the Table

And grace

Magnolia Blossom Pair

Her admirers stand in awe

Magnolia Blooms

of such a perfect creation;

Blossom in Candlelight

Her fragrance is intoxicating

Center Grouping

Her beauty…

Magnolias in Bloom

      Thank you! Jenna, I’d love for you to paint a Magnolia blossom. Oh! You probably have and I haven’t seen it! 🙂

    That magnolia makes me want to just sit on a porch with a glass of sweet tea and fan myself!!! It is the ULTIMATE in Southern charm!!! Not too many people can grow magnolias successfully here in the Kansas City area, so it’s a treat to see them when visiting the South. They’re just so pure looking! And I love the way they look against the deep green of their leaves.

    Beautiful tablescape, Kim. It’s the very picture of how one might describe “Southern gentility.”

      Thank you very much, Alycia! I’m sure our Magnolias look special because our soil is perfect for growing them. 🙂
