Can you believe we are in the final days of July? Summer is melting away! It is hard to believe we are sharing a new monthly Pinterest Challenge already! The weeks are flying by! So when Cindy from County Road 407 chose a fun lemon themed arrangement for this month’s Pinterest Challenge I was all in for this one.
If you are stopping by from Katie’s blog, Let’s Add Sprinkles.Welcome to Everyday Edits.
This time of year I have a basket full of lemons (and limes) to sweeten my tea and bubbly water. Cindy found our inspiration with this arrangement from Mary and on her blog, Home Is Where the Boat Is.
Lemon Centerpiece for the Kitchen
The best part of this month’s Pinterest Challenge was 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
Elements for a Lemon Centerpiece
I pulled a few elements from Mary’s inspirational photo to create my lemon centerpiece for the kitchen table.
- flowers (real or faux)
- glass vases ( milk jar + mason jars)
The anchor to my lemon centerpiece was the new tiered tray I purchased here. It was the perfect anchor for this monthly challenge.
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 (no pun intended) 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 was 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.
This was such a fun Pinterest Challenge. I loved the challenge of the mason jars and fresh lemons.
