Summer Centerpiece for the Coffee Table

 
I wanted to share with you the centerpiece I've had on my coffee table for awhile now. In keeping with the bit of "coastal vibe" I have going on, on my mantel, I created a similar look here.
 
I gathered up the items seen below which included:
 
two glass cylinder vases with inserts, a round basket, some shells, woven balls and faux grasses.
 
Starting with the glass vases, I placed faux grass balls inside the vases and sand, bits of greenery and tealights inside the inserts.
 
 
 
Placing the vases inside the basket, I laid the faux grasses in between them.
 
Taking the other items,
I gradually filled the spaces around the vases until I got a look I liked.


 
 
 
As seen below, you will notice I've used the same basic items of the basket and vases that I used in my winter coffee table centerpiece and...
 
...my Easter/Spring coffee table centerpiece.
 
I like using existing décor and just changing it up a bit for each season.  It saves money and time!
 
 
We might as well check out what's on my end tables as well...

 I've added some green accents to the living room for spring/summer.

Such pretty vignettes and the candles add the perfect touch! So pretty and relaxing to see the flicker of the flame in the evening.
Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday...
