My post last week about my garden got me thinking about how I plan to use what I have growing this year. When entertaining, there is simply nothing quite as beautiful as an arrangement of flowers sitting in the middle of the table. It immediately draws your guests in and creates conversation, warmth, and beauty.
However, even when I am not entertaining, I love to keep a fresh array of florals on the table. It livens the room and is an instant reminder of the joy that I get from my garden.
Sometimes, when creating an everyday centerpiece, I don’t always want something large or extravagant, but I do want it to fill out the space. I have come to learn that the best way to accomplish this is to create one arrangement using multiple smaller vases. Since we are not all professional florists here, this is a much more approachable way to accomplish an equally stunning centerpiece.
Don’t get me wrong, when I am prepared to pull out all of the stops, it is extremely rewarding to craft one large centerpiece. But I truly do adore the charm of these simpler arrangements, and I think their casual nature is just splendid for summer!
Here are three ideas that will hopefully inspire your next summer table!
