I love the idea of placing a centerpiece on your dining room or kitchen table that reflects the season. Centerpieces bring so much interest to a table – to a room, even – and they’re a lot of fun to create. I personally collect antique bottles and glasses, so I decided to create a centerpiece that would incorporate some of them. Along with an old soda crate and a bunch of fresh flowers, this centerpiece feels like the start of true summer to me.
You can find old bottles and crates at most thrift stores and flea markets. When choosing bottles for a centerpiece, try to use varied sizes to keep it interesting. The bottles I used were all either clear-colored or with a slightly blue tint, so they fit in well with one another. I then chose three types of flowers and cut them to varied lengths to add to the interest. I arranged them in my crate, placed the crate atop my dining room table, and voila! Instant summer centerpiece. :)
