I recently came across the pics from this little get-together I had for my aunt, mom and grandmother last summer and realized I never posted them. Probably because it wasn't my best efforts in tablescaping (short notice!) but now, I'm thinking maybe there is some sort of inspiration you could glean from it.
By now, you know these glass hurricanes with the inserts are my "GO-TO" centerpiece especially when pressed for time.
I placed some pebbles in the bottom with one of my grass orbs. In the top insert, I poured in some sand and added a votive in a glass votive cup. A simple but effective summertime centerpiece in minutes!
I added two round glass vases with more grass balls and pebbles on each side. A couple of froggies complete the summer-time theme!
The weather, though sunny wasn't really warm enough for sitting outside so I had set this up in the dining room. I'm not a big fan of melamine/plastic dishware but these have such a pretty pattern so I've used them lots.
What's a get-together without a few goodies? Fortunately, I had these squares in my freezer and was able to thaw and plate them before the guests arrived. (Chocolate Brownies, Coconut Cake and Granola Bars)
And voila, a summer indoor gathering ensued!
I like centerpieces that run the length of the table!
To me, the green grass and the sunny yellow colour give this table a summery feel even if it is indoors.
It was an enjoyable afternoon and I was so glad I invited my relatives over for this last minute get-together!
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be linking this post to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch. You'll want to head over there too!
