[ your summer centerpiece ]

in usual fashion. i over bought, over prepared, and over stocked everything for the wedding. nothing is worse than running out.. of anything.. when you are entertaining. this also means lots of extra awesome stuff lying around the house now. including air plants and chardonnay {2 things i love;)}
we made small terrariums as our favors and had tons of this sea glass and these air plants lying around after.

i found some small containers including candle holders, filled them up and displayed around the house.

easy. inexpensive and pretty classy looking if you ask me.
these are the perfect solution for saving some cash while you are doing lots of entertaining through the summer. it's pretty hard to kill these little guys (but totally possible, i've had my fair share of air plant funerals), so buy a few and they'll last you through the summer months. change your sea glass to different materials for each of your different shindigs. even change your containers. you won't spend a boat load buying fresh blooms every time you have the girls over for wine (although it's very tempting and nothing can really replace the charm of a fresh flower).

happy entertaining!
