Super Simple Summer Time Centerpieces

If you are like me and love to entertain during the summer, but want it to be simple and no-fuss, today's post is for you.  I'd like to share two quick, inexpensive centerpiece ideas.    


Fern-in-a-basket…

One of the easiest ways to liven up a room for summertime is with a fresh fern centerpiece.  My go-to container is a large chunky woven basket from a discount home store (like this basket from HomeGoods $18).

Hosta-wrapped-tulips…

Another favorite summertime centerpiece uses bright orange tulips and clippings from around the yard.  In this example, I  wrapped a few leaves from my hosta around the tulip stems before placing them in a clear vase. 





























I put these together last week while working on a project for a special client. The fern-in-a-basket will last throughout the year and the hosta-wrapped-tulips are great for their weekend. 

Happy Summer!
