My favourite jars are blue:

Lemons in a Bowl

I recently went to a bridal shower where I saw this cute and quirky decorative idea that just blew me away, it’s pretty simple: Lemons in a Bowl! Really it’s a lemon centrepiece, so easy to do and so stunning to look at!

The first awesomely pretty example comes from Sitting in a Tree.


Next we have lemon filled vases with yellow flowers, so gorgeous. In this version cut up lemons floating in water.

You get the idea! and you can substitute the lemons for limes, oranges or any citrus really or even create a combination – there are no limits to what gorgeousness you can come up with!
