Victorian Bears Garden Tea Party
This candle garden features the Victorian Bears when they were young. In this arrangement they are having a lovely outdoor tea party in the garden. They are sitting and enjoying the lovely spring weather and sipping on some lovely tea which I imagine to be Earl Grey or something else appropriately Victoria in nature. I love working with the bear figurines and candles, they are amongst my favorite elements to work with when I am doing candle gardens. Something about bears fires up my imagination. I imagine that if bears could understand humans they would be quite surprised to find out how ingrained the bear is in our culture. The way I understand it, Theodore Roosevelt is responsible for this cultural anomaly, due to his reluctance to shoot a bear cub on a hunting trip. Stuffed bears were re-named “Teddy Bears” to honor his noble act.
