Summer is the best time of year to really take advantage of all of the great stuff growing around your yard.  You may not think you have the right stuff growing to pull together a summer arrangement but really anything that’s growing can work beautifully by mixing and matching various sizes of glass vases.

My yard is so lush right now from all of the rain we have had that I decided to take advantage of the overgrowth and make a large summer arrangement on my dining table.  I really don’t have anything exotic (I have a black thumb..); a couple caladium leaves from my front bed, an elephant ear cutting, asparagus fern and a few clippings from my neighbor’s gorgeous crepe myrtle trees.  It really doesn’t take much.

It’s about as simple as it looks, I just pulled out a few glass vases and glass candle holders and spread them out on this oversized tray (I’m sharing the DIY on Thursday):

If you do not have any flower plants, you can mix in a store bought inexpensive arrangement with your leaves and other yard clippings.  Even shrub clippings, tree branches with berries or long spiky indian hawthorne worked in will work.  Take advantage of the summer growth around your yard because as you can see, anything will work.

By the way, I made the oversized long tray so I could easily remove all of the vases off of the table for when we have a full table.  I can’t wait to show you guys on Thursday just how super easy this tray is to make.
