Have you ever walked past your dining table and noticed that your tablescape or table centerpiece is looking dull and boring. You want to freshen it up a bit but don’t have a lot of time. The solution: You need to buy some lemons! Lemons are inexpensive, bright, and easy to find in all grocery stores so why not add them to your tablescape? I even mix artificial lemons with real lemons in my arrangements because it creates a variation in the size of the lemons which creates a more realistic look.
Place a clear jar on a cake stand and fill the jar with lemons. Next, add greenery and more lemons around the outside of the jar. This centerpiece will brighten any table. To shop this look just click on the highlighted words.
First place eucalyptus greenery and branches in skinny vase. Next put the skinny vase inside a large white wide mouthed pitcher or vase. By putting the vase inside the pitcher your greenery and branches will stand up stronger and straighter. If you are using a white vase instead of the wide mouthed pitcher you probably won’t need the skinny vase inside. Now put lemons into greenery, around mouth of pitcher and around base of pitcher.

First place a white focal point such as a bird cage in the center of a table runner. Next add white candlesticks of varying heights along the table runner. (I like using white or glass objects because it helps the lemons’ yellow color pop.) Now wind green garland around the candlesticks. Last add lemons in groups of 3 along the greenery.

Creating an inviting table is the first step in actually using your dining table on a regular basis. Tablescapes do not have to be complicated or expensive. Start by collecting basic table props that can be used for multiple seasons and holidays. I have a great starter list in my “47 Must Haves on Your Wedding Registry” post.
