Outdoor Living

Spring Fiesta-Add easy flair to your spring alfresco dining. Here's a super simple decoration; Drop a peony bloom into a margarita glass and top it with a tea light. TIP; Grab some inexpensive glassware at your local dollar store.
Bottle Beauty- Bars and buffet tables must be adequately lighted, but they're often located far from electrical outlets. An easy, inexpensive solution is to gather clear apothecary bottles and fill them with lamp oil and wicks. Arrange the bottles under a large hurricane for protection; these are set on a sturdy cake stand.

Flower Votive Displays- Flowers and candlelight are nothing new, but together they create tabletop decorations fit for relaxed summer entertaining. Place votive candles in tall glass vessels, and attach a flower outside each ,trimming the stem to fit and tying with raffia that matches the flower. Set each display in a saucer of water to keep the flowers fresh
