Sunflower Tablescape

It’s the first day of Summer, so what better time than to share a bright and cheery tablescape featuring Sunflowers as the focal point.

I created this ‘welcome table’ for an outdoor party.  Although I enjoy designing with sunflowers, they are sometimes tricky to work with.  Sunflowers have thick stems and can be awkwardly shaped, but their stately stature, dramatic yellow hue, and affordability really make them a great choice for summer gatherings…and yes, they can look elegant!

Packs of retro chewing gum usually get a positive reaction from guests.  In this case, yellow packs of Juicy Fruit perfectly complement my color scheme.

Fabric and ribbon are my “go to” weapons for tablescapes.  Notice how the buttons on the vase are made from the same fabric as the table runner.
