Embrace late summer's bounty

Hello Decor Friends,

As the sun sets a little earlier, and a slight crispness creeps into the evening air, we know that late summer is upon us. It's the perfect time to celebrate the abundance of nature by incorporating fresh flowers and produce into our table decor. Can I give you a couple ideas that are quick and easy.

Late summer is a time when nature generously offers its finest treasures. Start by adorning your dining table with freshly picked flowers. Choose a mix of bold sunflowers, delicate daisies, and fragrant roses to create a beautiful centerpiece. Sunflowers, with their sunny disposition, are particularly fitting for late summer gatherings, instantly brightening up the mood.

Designer Tip #1

By using only one type of flower, you will create big visual impact.

Alongside fresh flowers, incorporate seasonal fruits and vegetables into your table decor. Arrange these vibrant delights in rustic baskets or wooden trays to add textural charm.

Why not make your table decor interactive and edible? Create stunning centerpieces using a mix of fresh flowers, greenery and fruits. Place a clear glass vase in the center of the table and fill it with water and sliced citrus fruits, like oranges, lemons or limes. Add a bunch of fresh flowers, and voilà! You have a centerpiece that not only looks stunning but also infuses the air with a delightful citrusy fragrance.

Designer Tip

Harmonize your colors or themes. Late summer is when we start to say good bye to bright colors, and look towards more earthy tones. Deep oranges, rustic browns, amber and yellow and greens. Remember your table is meant to be a place that is warm and inviting. Just as your create color stories in your rooms, your table should reflect the same color restraint.

As the sun-kissed days of late summer come to an end, let's celebrate the season's generosity by embracing the beauty of fresh flowers and produce as table decor.

Hope you have been inspired. Happy table setting.

Bye For Now
