Summer Tablescape

It's so easy to have a pretty table in the summertime with all the fresh flowers everywhere. My daughter put this arrangement together as she wandered around the yard, clippers in one hand and the vase in the other.

I tend to use just one or two flowers, but I love the loose and casual arrangement she made with at least 6 kinds of plant material.

Dinner on the patio - perfect summertime.

  1. Those flowers are great! I can almost smell them through the screen...

  2. It couldn't be more perfect!

  3. your sweet daughter did an amazing job...those little mini daisies are awesome.

  4. Pretty - your daughter did good.:)

  5. Beautiful flowers. They're just perfect. Happy TT to you!

  6. Beautiful flowers. I rarely use fresh flowers, because I'm a lazy gardener and just don't have it in me to keep a beautiful selection of florals up. Like a lot of other things, as I see all the lovely and unique tablesetting in Blogland, I'm going to have to rethink that.

  7. What a cute little arrangement, so pretty and I love it all came from your garden...those are the best bouquets! Miss Bloomers/Sonia

  9. How nice that your daughter can create a centerpiece for you and what a great job she did!


  10. Hi Lorrie,

    It has been a while. I just read through your European vacation. The pictures are wonderful. I love the one of you and your mom in Vienna.
    It looks like you had a marvelous time. Decent weather, good company.

    Have a blessed weekend my friend.


  11. Great photos. Summer really is a wonderful time of year. And I have to mention, we both have the same (or similar) table napkins. I'll have to go find mine and use them over the weekend, now that you've inspired me.

  12. This is beautiful! I love the mixed flowers arrangement!


  13. Hi Lorrie...Really lovely floral arrangement. Love the mix!
    Don't you just love Butchart has been awhile since I have been there. Your pics are lovely.

    Thank-you for visiting.
    Hugs, Nancy

  14. Your daughter has an eye for floral arrangements! You must have a beautiful selection of flowers! The table looks so inviting. Thanks for sharing!

  15. I loved your arrangement. It is so hot here in Texas the plants are so stressed... it would be hard to find flowers as fresh & beautiful as these. Thank you for sharing.

  16. Hats off to your daughter, these flowers are wonderful. She is really talented !
