Citrus Centerpiece | Spring and Summer Entertaining

Simple summer centerpiece made of citrus - get the easy DIY details!

Oh spring, you inspire me! It is the season where I slowly reintroduce color into our home – usually through organic elements. I enjoy keeping a neutral home, filled with neutral everyday accents that I can build from. It seems effortless & feels breezy to me. Rather than filling our home with lots of “stuff” & the latest trends, I’d rather have a few well-selected things that serve multiple purposes.

Easy, detailed instructions to create a centerpiece for spring & summer entertaining

Looking at everyday things in your home with a fresh perspective allows you to rethink them, beyond their typical use. In addition to serving dinner on these basic white plates, I can also treat them like a vase, creating a citrus centerpiece in less than 10 minutes! It’s easy & convenient.
