I often decorate my table with clipped greenery (free) and shells (free) and other things that I already have on hand. Right now the magnolias are in full bloom and BOY do they make this place smell delicious! Our table that we made to have a driftwood appearance just looks perfect I think with natural elements on top. In this case I used an oversized clam shell as a bowl and simply draped some magnolia clippings coming outwards from the “bowl” itself…
My favorite huge blue pitcher from HomeGoods adds a touch of soft blue.
This past weekend when we were up at the beach house I clipped some Crepe Myrtle (I’ve also seen it spelled Crape Myrtle – you choose) which is in full bloom in the south!
I’d like to update the almost 15 year old kitchen, but it’s not in the budget right now…
It will only last a day in water and makes a bit of a mess dropping flowers, so if you decide to bring some inside be prepared for that. It makes for a mouthwatering arrangement though and looks a little like lilac, which doesn’t grow in coastal Florida.
For more coastal decor ideas, I invite you to check out my BEACH HOME under the CATEGORIES DROP DOWN and I hope that you come away inspired wherever you live!
