Summer is one of my favorite times of year for bringing people together. The vibrant colors require a certain feeling of happiness and need for cheer. Spread your summer cheer with a casual centerpiece. The centerpiece is a great way to anchor any tablescape, as long as you incorporate consistent textures and tones.
Without overshadowing the rest of your setting, arrange an assortment of the season’s bounty, beautifully bold blooms and vegetation, to infuse the laidback feel of summer into this distinctive centerpiece.
We started with a rustic box. A vintage-inspired lantern was set in the center as our eye-catching piece. From there, you can let your imagination guide you. Choose a mix; we selected a blend of zinnias in pale yellow, peach, and burnt orange, as well as gerbera daisies, stock, geranium leaves, and ferns.
To finish, scatter additional fresh produce with vibrant hues like heirloom tomatoes, which are what we used, to add variety and added levels of interest. The wonderful perk of using a lantern, as a part of your centerpiece, is that the arrangement will double as a source of delightful illumination. So as you and your guests enjoy the evening, you will have extra light!
Which season is your favorite for entertaining?
