Can you believe we are in the middle of spring? As much as Colorado needs rain I am ready for warmer temps and not wearing my favorite pom hat while watching Netflix. So this is the season to bring out my DIY lemon tiered tray. This is my go-to tiered tray but I have my eye on this one. My girlfriend found the cutest one at Costco, but by the time I got there, they were gone. Did you know if you miss out on a Costco find it maybe at Costco online?
Who does not love lemons? Real or fake it makes no difference to me. Yellow is a refreshing pop of color for spring and summer.
This time of year I have a basket full of lemons (and limes) to sweeten my tea and bubbly water. In fact, lemon water keeps me on track with this goal (after the holidays).
LEMON CENTERPIECE FOR THE KITCHEN TABLE
The best part of using a few real lemons is my kitchen smelled like fresh lemons. I am usually in such a rush to toss a lemon wedge in my water, I never stop long enough to smell … the lemons. #wink
IDEAS FOR A LEMON CENTERPIECE
- tiered tray (this one is on sale now)
- flowers (real or faux)
- glass vases ( milk jar + mason jars)
- tiered tray lemon theme bundles
The anchor to my lemon centerpiece was the new tiered tray I purchased here.
I used a combination of fresh lemons, artificial lemon branches and glass jars for my lemon centerpiece.
What I love about a tiered tray for a kitchen centerpiece are the layers. I started with a stash of lemon branches.
My challenge was to find a smaller vase to insert into my mason jar. I did not have “nesting vases” so I had to wing it with a small glass milk jar (from a garage sale) and a mason jar. The mason jar was a little too big for my tiered tray so I could not add fresh flowers to the center of the two vases.
But that was okay because the fresh lemons and water were both pretty and made the kitchen smell lemony fresh.
And, for a fun add-on to my centerpiece, I added this Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy wood block. I may have added a leftover gingham cardboard box from this project.
