bright and striking centerpieces with lemons

Love, love lemons!  And in California when the Meyer lemons come out in markets, I cannot resist buying lots of them.  The bright, yellow and fragrant fruit brings color to the most dismal days and makes for a lovely centerpiece.

Easy and long lasting centerpieces can be made with a dozen lemons and a few different size vases.  You can fill with water and set votive candles the vases for a dinner party, or for lunch place vases in center with a few lemon leaves or other greens and you have an easy, gorgeous, beautiful and fragrant centerpiece to your table!

bright and striking centerpieces with lemons

    Easy

Ingredients

Directions

1
Done

Take two to three different size vases. I use 6 inches in diameter (15cm) by 8 inches in height (20mm), and another 6 inches in diameter and 6 inches (15cm) in height.

2
Done

Fill each vase with lemons, right to the top.

3
Done

Place on center of table with either a few greens around them (see picture), or just keep simple. I like to use lemon leaves or bamboo to add more color around the vases. But they look just as beautiful without anything else.

Done

If wanting to create some night time shimmer, add water to each vase right to the top. You may have to remove a few lemons. Then place vases on table surrounded by votive candles
