The Easy Guide To Put Flowers On Your Table

Set a Pretty Table

When it comes to decorating, you don’t have to spend a fortune on your table.  A few summer flower pots (only a few dollars) in a colander, vase or basket are simple, cheerful and perfect for outdoor gathering.

And, magnolia’s are another best bet. Love this tablescape from Between Naps On The Porch.

Magnolia = gorgeous scent, majestic, easy, classic and pretty with a few fresh cut stems.

And, here’s uncomplicated but refined in this Country Living outdoor fete. Vibrant colors  in the flowers enhance the lush lakeside setting. A simple cotton tablecloth and fresh clipped summer flowers dress up the food-laden picnic table with just a pinch of effort.

Our final suggestion: succulents!  Succulents always make quick, low care table arrangement. Push a few in a goblet, and viola!
