When Life Gives You Lemons...


...make centerpieces. Just thought I'd share some pics from last night's dinner with friends at our house. Unfortunately, I didn't think to get a picture of the wonderful meal my husband made. So silly. It was delish.

The decor might not have matched the Indian cuisine (with traditional Indian dessert we perfected on the third batch) but it sure was summery and easy. Lemons, cylinder vases, scrapbook paper "runner", some fabric sashes on the chairs, and three bunches of lilies are all you need to recreate this look. (Okay, and some ribbon, chargers, white tablecloth, napkins, a little bit of time, a slightly obsessive attention to detail and just a hint of paprika.)

Oh wow, I didn't even realize you did this party when you did this post. I found those gift bags and the mind starting spinning.

What a great idea! Lemons are wonderful fruits that not only have an attractive shape, but also beautiful color. Oranges and limes are also great to use. You can check out an example of how these fruits are used from this article.
