Easy To-DO and Inexpensive SUMMER Decor


Sometimes it is the simplest of things that can make us happy and I also think simple things can add beauty to our homes. 

We don't necessarily have to go out and buy the most expensive of decor elements to add beauty to our homes. I love to pick up flowers and produce to add color and texture to my home when I am at the grocery store.

Today I am going to show you several pictures of  grocery store bouquets and produce that I used to add some loveliness to our home.

Keep in mind all of these you are about to see usually cost between $9-$12 at our local grocery store, and I know most grocery stores carry flowers now.

A vintage wood bowl and fresh produce added next to a bouquet of flowers always makes me smile.

I like to keep snacks out on my counter so I used soup bowls filled with nuts and cranberries. The white roses and candles add a nice glow.

 Again fun finds from the grocery store and I put them in a colorful pitcher and basket.

I love fresh tomatoes from the fruit stands that we have in our area, they not only look pretty, but they are delicious!

If you have left over flowers find an unusual way to display them. 

You will notice I change out the colors of my bowls, vases and pitchers according to the produce and the flowers I am using.

 Sometimes a grouping of bowls can be more of a statement than one bowl of produce.

Sometimes I will add just a touch of produce by a vase that adds a nice compliment to the flowers I am using. I love the way the limes pull out the greens in the stems of the daffodils.

If I am having overnight guest I like to keep out a tray of goodies for them to snack on anytime they want to. Notice I also have some limes and lemons and cuties to fill in the empty spaces. All full of color and texture.

Fresh yellow tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and red cherry tomatoes.

It doesn't have to be a large bouquet to be pretty.

I like to have a bud vase in my bathrooms for a flower or two, just adds a nice touch.

I often will add "3" flowers in a vase, one for each of my son's! When I look at them I always think of my boys.

Simple daisies in French perfume lab beakers.

When I have guest I will put out what they might need to make a cup of tea or coffee next to the coffee pot for easy access, notice the addition of one simple pansy in a vintage blue bottle.

Little bouquets from our rose bushes waiting to be placed throughout our home.

One sprig of fern in vintage bottles adds a fresh touch on the window sill of the kitchen.

No flowers not to worry add a glass full of colorful straws with your bowl of produce!!

I will leave you all with this weeks simple flowers and produce.

Remember every thing you saw in this post today was purchased at the grocery store or fruit stand. The best part the price point and how easy it all is to do!!

Enjoy your Summer 
fresh fruit and flowers!!!!
