Hey Everyone! Welcome to the Summer Seasonal blog hop! I love decorating for summer. My summer style is lighter, brighter, quick, easy and less is more. Since I started decorating in my living room this year, I thought that I would share how I’m using a cute white summer lantern on my coffee table.
If you are coming here from Niky’s, The House of Silverado Welcome!
I found this cute lantern at a local store, The Painted Tree.
It’s very rustic, but I loved the shape and the price was fantastic.
I loved it so much that I went back and got this one for my outdoor patio.
They are just so versatile I could see decorating them so many ways.
There were also larger ones that I could kick myself for not buying…
I knew this lantern would be perfect on my coffee table.
To get this look I started with a Eucalyptus leaf vine.
Just wrapped it up in a circle and placed it inside, making sure to pull out leaves here and there in the openings.
Next, in the center, I placed a glass candleholder to add a little height to the arrangement.
On top of the candleholder I added a sweet little rustic bird.
Quick, easy and budget friendly.
Next to the lantern I added another ceramic lantern, a small gold candleholder and a string of wooden beads.
Simple, easy and I love the light, bright look.
But remember I said that it was versatile?
So I did another arrangement.
I kept the eucalyptus greenery and added a simple white candle in the middle.
Next to the lantern I added a couple of white hob nail jars.
Adding the white wooden beads finished off this arrangement.
Both arrangements were super easy and took very little time.
My kind of decorating!
My living room is summer ready.
Leaving me plenty of time for other projects….
Now please join me in visiting Cindy at Cloches and Lavender to see her cute summer decor and all of the other participants in our Summer decor hop.
