Goodday my friends,
I am interrupting my summer break (thoroughly enjoying that by the way) to show off a little easy summer centerpiece that even I, in my lounging summer ways, could do. And I guess that means so can all of you.
Got unexpected guests coming? In need of a little quick decorating with oomph factor? Want a conversation inducing centerpiece but not the work that normally goes with them? You like quick, easy and (almost) for free?
Got you covered my friends.
In fact my project of today is so easy and laid back that I think I would be insulting your creative talent if I gave you a full tutorial.
Check out my easy summer centerpiece:
I made a last-minute-unexpected-guest-decorating-centerpiece. There was a paint brush involved so I guess you could consider this a craft, but in all honesty that was about as crafty as it got.
But I love this kind of decorating/crafting. I think I am actually getting to be known for it, since easy and light decorating with flowers is just about my most favorite thing to do. Lazy decorating with flowers like I do with tulips, or peonies, or roses.
And I think this is the perfect summer centerpiece that will be a conversation inducing centerpiece at any garden party.
And it couldn’t be more easy.
- Go dig in the garden shed for some terracotta pots and saucers.
- Paint the outside white.
- Find the tiniest glasses you have.
- Go snip flowers from your backyard or the roadside.
- Put it all together and enjoy it.
I kind of went for a multi-colored, multi-flowered look here. But I am sure it would look awesome in a single color tone too, or with all the same flowers.
This is so easy, it can be changed in matter of minutes.
I have also done a version of this easy flower arrangement idea on a tray and it looks equally pretty and was just as simple and quick to pull together.
So easy, but I do think it has the oomph factor. Agree?…….
Yeah, what better time than summer to take a relaxed approach to crafting and decorating? I guess we’ve got the rest of the year to go for daring, challenging and complicated.
Let’s all just enjoy some floral beauty the easy way instead.
Oh and maybe a nice cold glass of pink wine too 😉
I am going back to my hammock now 🙂
CU and I hope you have a rocking good summer too.
