A Quick Summer Touch

 
 
I shared with you my Easter trayscape that I made here. I loved the look of this trayscape so much that I was not ready to part with it just yet. So I decided to keep it through summer time this season. I wanted to add a little touch of summer to this arrangement so I added some seashells! I know this does not seem like that big of a change, but I love when you can add a simple touch of nature and make it look so pretty! For me this is exactly the case with this trayscape. When I pass by and look at it I immediately think its summer time!



You don't have to spend a lot of money to decorate.  You can use simple things and add it to what you already have! I had all of these items from years past!

 
 
All I did with this trayscape was use some hot glue and added the starfish to my candlesticks!

 
 
 
 
 
 I already had the raffia bows that I added to the Easter arrangement previously. I love my pottery bird candle that sits at the bottom of this trayscape! I surrounded the whole trayscape with a small greenery wreath!



  This is super easy to do and this took all of ten minutes to put together!

  2. Very pretty, I love simple but different table/tray scapes that can be done quickly. Adding the green wreath is very subtle but pretty, just the right touch of green.
    Happy Weekend
