As soon as I saw my vintage blue Mason jar, I knew this centerpiece was coming! I just had to wait for the perfect bits of nature to complement it…and I found them at last! But I will be honest here…my centerpiece didn’t start out this way.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Summer CenterpieceYou see…it started on my new zinc tray…mostly because I wanted you to see it…my Pottery Barn Outlet bargain! And I wanted to use my favorite colors…blue and yellow. Now I am no minimalist, but I still knew something was wrong.

Ozzie And then my oh-so-wise CEO Miss Ozzie, who always gets straight to the point, had a suggestion…Edit, my dear, just edit. Focus on the things you love best!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Simple Summer Centerpiece And she was right! So I pulled out my favorite ironstone tea pot…

Mason Jar …and I added my wonderful vintage blue Mason jar…

Hydrangeas …filled with a beautiful blossoming hydrangea and a bouquet of yellow and white flowers.

NestNext came my favorite bird’s nest whose creator had lovingly decorated it with a crape myrtle seed pod. Then I filled it with bluebird eggs from an abandoned nest…thanks to a very territorial pair of mocking birds who want to remain neighborless.

And there you have it…my simple summer centerpiece...with all of my new loves in one place! Yes…I have to admit…Miss Ozzie was right. Sometimes less is more!
