I don’t know about all of you but I absolutely LOVE summer. I should seriously move somewhere where there is never snow and the temperature doesn’t drop below 50. Ha ha ha.
Did you get that reference to the movie Grease in the title of the post?? But really it is summer and it only took me about 30 minutes to pull this look together!
As great as summer is sometimes it is just beyond too hot to eat outside. That means bring the outside in, where the air conditioning keeps the temperature just right!!
I like to repurpose things that I already have in different ways. I am all about saving money and getting the biggest bang for my buck! The only items I didn’t already have for this table setting were the flowers that I purchased at Trader Joe’s for a whopping $8!
I used some of my outside plants, including lavender which smells heavenly.
The blue pots were just simple cheap terracotta pots that I spray painted and then distressed with some steel wool and a sanding block.
I used wine glasses and shot glasses to hold flowers for varying heights, mixed in with the plants. (oh and the beads around them are some of my bracelets!). Told you I like to repurpose!!
I actually put a shot glass inside a stemless wine glass and surrounded it with moss. I added moss to the plants as well because I think it looks much more pulled together without the dirt showing.
When you are looking to change things up, don’t just run to the store. Look around your house at what you already have and think outside the box on what items can be used for. You would be amazed at what you can come up with!
