Make A Summer Centerpiece!


You all know that I love to set simple tables, and center pieces. 
I seem to like understated style for some reason. 

Sometimes a simple change or addition can brighten up a table, or even a whole room. 


A few days ago I added a new summer centerpiece to the kitchen table. 

The bright reds and oranges really speak to me during this time of the hot summer. 


The green stems are a color that I almost consider a neutral in my home. Green can be found in almost every room in my house.



In the picture below you can see that my drapery fabric has lots of green stems and fronds scattered around. 


My Boyd's bears are still hanging out in the high chair. 


I use white dishes, which makes it so easy for me to switch out centerpieces and placemats from time to time.


These are silk stems, so I don't have to worry about the beauty fading too soon. ha! I love fresh cut flowers, but sometimes "faux" is what I put together. 

If you have a colorful cutting garden you could put together colorful centerpiece in no time. I have seen pics of some of your gardens! :-)

Thanks for visiting. 
I hope you are having a great day!
