Louise Roe’s Perfect Summer Centerpiece

  Back to DIY Projects

Inspired by our limited edition Designer Label Pinot Grigio, Style Society blogger Louise Roe shares her tips for a simple, high-impact upgrade to your summer tablescape.




Instructions

To create the perfect Palm Springs-inspired centerpiece for all your outdoor events this Summer, go for fresh flowers in mix matched containers with gold accents. This flower arrangement will go perfectly with Ecco Domani’s limited edition Pinot Grigio bottle to create a festive Summer tablescape!

1.     Skip the nursery/florist. Believe it or not, your local grocery store is bound to have tons of gorgeous options this season, including peonies, tulips, roses and more. Stick with bold colors like bright pinks, red, yellows, and oranges – but always style with green for a chic contrast. I found the prettiest green roses to mix in with my arrangement, and it gave total Palm Springs vibes. Plus, how easy is it to pick up a few bouquets on your weekly grocery run?

2.     Get creative with your vases. One of my secrets to creating floral arrangements that have character and charm is to use mix & matched vases, mixing both modern and vintage pieces. I found my gold vases at a local flea market, and used mason jars and gold-trimmed cocktail glasses to give my table an eclectic look.

3.     Play with height. Cut your flowers to different lengths, to add some interest and dimension to the table. I kept my tulips long, in modern cylinder vases, and created several mini arrangements with my peonies by chopping them off short. It’s a fun way to bring some personality to your tablescape!
