Summer Table and Apricots

Friends, it’s the month of Summer! The flowers are blooming and the sun is shining warm and bright. Before I decorate a table I choose a centerpiece and work around that. The centerpiece I chose for this table were our lovely myrtle blooms. Flowers seem to make most spaces magical. I wanted the space to feel warm and cheery, so I added fresh orange apricots and wood and copper accents. I left the chandelier lights on as well, to add warmth to the room. Unfortunately my favorite white table runner had an unforgivable spill and it had to be thrown away, so I used a tea towel instead. Many of the plates I use are nuetral colors, so it’s simple to mix and match and create new tablescapes.
