The last week of school is here and it’s full of class parties, field days, and finals! We are all ready to have some fun in the sun!
For the next two weeks I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers who will be sharing some fabulous summer crafts, recipes, decorating ideas and so much more.
My in-laws are about to arrive for a visit, then we’ll head to the beach for a vacation. I wanted to have a nice dinner and a pretty tablescape for them, but I don’t have a lot of time to fuss over the decor. So I thought I’d share with you this super fast and Simple Summer Centerpiece. It’s perfect for casual summer dining.
To make this Simple Summer Centerpiece you will need the following items:
- a vase
- Mixed Beach Seashells – Various Sizes
- Sisal Rope, Natural
- 2 mason jars
- hot glue gun
- 2 votive candles
Step 1) Fill the bottom of a vase with clean shells.
Step 2) Wrap neck of vase with sisal rope and secure in a few places with hot glue.
Step 3) Fill with water and flowers.
To make the Summer Sisal Votives, wrap the lower 1/3 of a clean mason jar with sisal rope and secure with hot glue. Decorate the rope with a shell, hot glued on. Fill jar 1/2 full with sand and insert a votive candle in the sand.
I love how quick and easy this was to make and super inexpensive because the flowers came from my hydrangea bushes. The Simple Summer Centerpiece is displayed on my faux etched glass table on the deck. Won’t dinner be lovely outside?
