08 Jun Summer Tablescape
A few years ago, my sister gave me a few peonies from her garden to plant in our yard. I remember the first year after planting, how excited I was to get a single bloom on that plant. Today, we have dozens of blooms. I’m not sure why but this year seems exceedingly abundant. I love it! I hope they continue to spread so I can divide them to plant more throughout the yard.
Last year, I remember feeling hesitant about cutting them as they looked so pretty in the yard. However, since we have so many blooms this year I was able to cut a whole bunch and still leave some for the yard! I decided to put them in a large vintage recycled glass vase which makes the perfect centerpiece for a Summer tablecape.
I used cool blue hues in the glassware, table runner and napkins to complement the warm wood tones in the table.
I kept the place setting simple as I wanted a casual, outdoor vibe. The rope vases add a nice outdoor/coastal touch.
I had a lot of fun photographing these peonies. I think they make such a wonderful centerpiece for a late Spring/early Summer gathering.
I hope you enjoyed my Summer tablescape! Summer is almost officially here! 🙂
