FYI, using lemons with classic blue and white is a truly hot trend.
The pop of lemon yellow against crisp blue and white is a luscious combination. You might try a pair of lemon topiaries on your buffet or console table, for example, mixed with your blue and white accessories.
Or try this for a spring or summer tablescape: bright yellow Real Touch blooms in blue and white vases echo the color of faux lemons nestled in a centerpiece created from a eucalyptus ring with a footed bowl of lemons for height. The lemon print table runner pulls all the elements together!
Sensory note: you’ll love the fragrance of lemons in your home when they’re displayed sans refrigeration in
-decorative ceramic bowls
-lidded glass apothecary jars
-large glass cylinders. (Make a fabulous lemon vase by inserting a slim glass vase inside a large glass cylinder and stacking lemons in the space between the two. Then fill the inner vase with water and pop in your bright summer blooms.)
One of our favorite ways to enjoy the cheery lemon is by incorporating it into summer wreaths. Hang a lemon wreath on the front door to welcome guests. Inside, hang one on a hall tree or the back of a chair, or on the door of a buffet, cabinet, or console. Lemons, whether fastened very simply into a ring of greenery like eucalyptus or fitted among summer florals, will bring that tang of bright yellow that makes you long for a glass of lemony iced tea!
Summer advice from The Mint Julep: friends, when life gives you lemons--decorate with them!
