Because all great summer parties and delicious summer meals deserve some extra attention….don’t forget seasonal flowers for your table.

Below some of my easy summer picks to brighten your table.  From snipping some fresh herbs outside your window box, to picking some hydrangea blooms in your garden or hitting your roadside market to find bright yellow sunflowers…don’t forget to adorn your table with nature’s jewelry; fresh flowers.  Watch your summer table just come alive!

Cutting blooms short to the rim of the container gives them a fuller look and makes arranging minimal.

When choosing flowers for your special event, try to think of the serving plates  and dishes you are using for your food and coordinate the floral arrangements according to the colors or style of the dishware. I usually pick a color scheme and then run with it throughout the whole affair.
