There is nothing I love more than sitting around a table and catching up with friends. Sometimes that is where my company and I end up, at the table chatting away. Why am I talking about the table? Because it helps to have something pretty to look at while gabbing away. I love creating centerpieces to go with the seasons and wanted to share my Spring/Summer dining room table look. But first, a little story of me and my hoarding tendencies! Haha!
I am always trying to look at things in a different way. For example this lantern. It was my moms and I asked if I could have it about eight years ago. I attempted to put it various places throughout the years and it just never worked. But I refused to throw it away because I knew that one day I would be happy I didn't. It's that day. After a fresh coat of spray paint it is now the center of my dining room set up. So for today's tip, always try to look at this for what they could be not just what they currently are.
Fast Tips on making your centerpieces:
Choose a color scheme. Gold was an easy choice since my rooms have a lot of gold.
Don't be afraid of faux flowers but don't over do it.
Think about layering, for example pebbles and faux moss.
Have a fabulous day!
