Simple Summer Centerpiece



I had a Southern Living at Home party last Saturday night at my house. I don't know if any of you are familiar with Southern Living at Home products. They have some beautiful pieces. I was having trouble coming up with a centerpiece for my table. I have these two tall cone shaped clear cylinders, that used to be a set of three. One of them has been broken. I usually decorate them in the fall, and at Christmas, but was having trouble coming up with something bright and cheerful. I decided to just get some lemons and limes from the grocery store, and this is the end product. The picture of it didn't really do it justice, but at night with the candles lit, it was really pretty, and very simple!

Blessings, Nancy
