I found extra pretty wine bottles at the grocery store. But you can use any old bottle that you have. Clear glass bottles work, colored wine bottles work and you could even give a bottle a real quick paint treatment. No need for perfection here.
Speaking about decorating in 15 minutes….
How about that, you just created a lovely flower centerpiece in 10 minutes or less!
I love using trays when creating a centerpiece, it pulls the whole collection of items together and it makes it easy to move the arrangement out of the way when needed. You can totally do this to with a fresh flowers arrangement that is super easy and super quick to create and that used inexpensive grocery store flowers. And yet it looks like a million bucks.
Oh, and if you are looking for another quick and easy summer decorating idea: check out my mini hanging glass flower vases. Super cute and so easy.
First and foremost those bottles. I had spotted them at the grocery store a couple of times and up untill yesterday I had been able to withstand their lure. And then I caved. I am such a sucker for pretty packaging.
Both are pink wine bottles. The white one is a plain rose and the blue one a sparkling rose. Both are very good and man-approved. The pink wine is a memory now, the bottles will be here to stay.
I love that they are so pretty with a nice little message to us.
I also love it when my decorating forces me to drink wine……?
The second thing that inspired this vignette are some new beach decorations that I bought the other day on a special day out. I love it that we can so easily cross a border into another country, another culture, where there are stores I don’t have back home. The ceramic sea stars and sea urchins were found in Germany at a store called Depot. I loved the clear whiteness of the ceramics and I knew they had to come home with me.

In the store they have also created lovely vignettes to show you how to use the accessories they are selling. In fact one of them looked similar to this. They used regular wine bottles though, but when I saw it I knew I had finally found the perfect excuse to buy those pretty wine bottles at the grocery store. And the rest is history.
The necklace was an extra that came with an order for shells I placed online (with all of my summerification projects still in the making I was running out of shells !). It turned out like the perfect addition to this vignette.
Oh and see that canvas in the back?
Let’s take a closer look shall we…..
A 50 cents thrift store find. Nobody wanted it. No surprise there. Someone had painted a perfectly nice beach canvas and then they glued a paper circle with blobs of paint in the middle.
I bought it with the intention of re-using the canvas one day. But when I removed that eye-sore in the middle (thank god for cheap glue), I actually quite like the beach painting. So it became the perfect backdrop for my new vignette.
Yes. Project summerification is well on its way and I am liking it so far.
