Summer citrus and natural elements highlight the best the season has to offer. Create a standout centerpiece by taking the double-decker approach. The vessel for these bursting blooms is nestled in a base made of a woven basket filled with citrus fruit, adding both height and variety of texture.

A scattering of bud vases with two or three blooms spreads the fun of your floral display to every guest! Keep things cohesive by sticking with a single material, like these clear glass options.

Don’t just slice them up for your drink! Bright yellow lemons are a beautiful option for your table’s décor, as well. Whether piled around your centerpiece or printed on the linens, they’re a summery touch that’s sure to bring a smile.

If your centerpiece is a work of art, help it shine more brightly by selecting place settings on the simple side. White dishes with an interesting edge are beautiful but subtle, and napkins with embroidered detailing add a dash of understated sophistication while pulling out the pattern on the table.
