Set the table with a gorgeous aromatic summer centerpiece of citrus bowl herbal diffusers!
Are your planning a summer get-together? Skip the huge flower displays and save money with summer’s fruits. If you’re anything like me than you are probably already buying lemons and limes for cocktails or chillers for the party.
And if you have a few essential oils on hand you are more than halfway there!
Just grab a few sprigs from your herb garden and sea salt from the kitchen, and you’ll have yourself a one of kind centerpiece. Guests will rave about the sweet fresh aroma and everyone will be able to see each other from the across the dinner table!
Which is only a complaint I get from the men in our family when I’ve worked hard to create a table display… Go figure. As you hollow out each fruit throw it in the blender to create a chiller or save it for cocktails.
