Hello Glamourites,

Lately I have been trying to find extra ways to keep myself nice and cool with the heat of summer. Although don’t get me wrong I LOVE the heat! This recipe I found I must give credit to the Broken Bread blog at http://the-broken-bread.com but I have tried my own spin on it and you can use other fruit or ingredients you have around the house. Hope you are enjoying the sunshine xx Glamour Planner

Vases of sunshine

3 Jun

Hi Glamourites,

With all this amazing weather we have been getting it seems only right to be bringing the sunshine inside as well. Making your own arrangement like these vases can be as complicated or as simple as you make it. They can be used on your everyday kitchen table, for a big dinner event and even parties to add some colour! Hope you enjoy my inspiration!

This example is super simple, pick up a bag of lemons at your grocery store and throw them into a vase of water and place your bouquet of sunflowers with it, so bright & happy!

I love the look of the limes cut-up and seeing the inside, the pattern adds neat sense of detailing.

As shown in the picture, this type of vase is much more party friendly because of the shape. It is tall and skinny which means it is easy to see around and does not block people vision. I would still have this on my kitchen table, so funky!
