Centerpiece with Dahlias
This casual centerpiece was pulled together with just fresh wildflowers and candlelight! Isn’t amazing how candles can instantly elevate the mood in a room?
I layered some new and vintage breadboards on top of my linen runner and love the rustic feel it brings to this summer centerpiece. And adding in a few bud vases with sprigs of fresh flowers adds to the casual vibe.
Summer Wildflower Centerpiece
One of my favorite things about this wildflower summer centerpiece is the beautiful jewel tones. I love the dark burgundy color set against the navy runner and the pop of vibrant greens!
The mums are a great way to add deep, rich hues of magenta and reds.
And these cosmos keep this rustic summer centerpiece from feeling too serious. Whimsical and beautiful at the same time, they grow so well here in our California climate.
This is flowering oregano and I love the texture it adds to this summer centerpiece. Their pretty pink color also keeps the arrangement from feeling too dark.
This fuzzy pink flower is called Astilbe, or False Goat’s Beard. Side note, I am obsessed with goats! So, it seems fitting that I add some of this cute flower to this whole scene. It lends some pretty fun texture too!
This entire rustic summer centerpiece was created with dahlias in mind. See, when I think of late summer, I think of these beautiful blooms. And this is my favorite color too!
So, to recap, here are the flowers used in this rustic summer centerpiece: Mums, Dahlias, Cosmos, Zinnias, Astilbe, Eucalyptus, Flowering Oregano and Hydrangeas.
