Centerpiece of the Month~ July

In spite of the dry hot weather, the hydrangeas have been beautiful this year. I love the big balls of blue flowers, they can always bring a smile.

So what could be better for a Centerpiece of the Month for the month of July?
Each month we send a picture of what is in the center of our tables to Janelle at Talk of Tomatoes. She does a great job of rounding every one's centerpiece up into one fun post.


In June we saw Glenna use some cherries from her Fridge Full of Food, Laurie always has some vintage things around for a Charming Design. From Yum Sugar we had the cutest vase of green grapes and bright red gerber daisies. Sher shared a special vase full of beautiful flowers. I always look forward to A Spot of Tea ... and Joy's centerpiece. Mish Mash was the most creative with a ice sculpture/bowl and Vegan Visitor had a new use for an egg cup.

Right now... look at the center of your table!
Y'all take a picture and send it to Janelle.

Those are some beautiful hydrangeas, Sandi!
Our poor hydrangeas are not going to bloom this year...I just know it! I miss them!
We've been told to hang onto hope, they may bloom in late summer! They were beautiful the first two years!

I have to remember the centerpiece of the month. Will write myself a note!

Hydrangeas are one of my favourites, ours are just out now.

Last year I had some peaches which I pickled...they were absolutely fabulous.

Your hydrangeas are beautiful. It has been so hot and dry here, and I just can't seem to water mine enough!

I love hydrangeas! My dear mother-in law used to grow the most beautiful ones there in Alabama. I remember asking her once years ago what they were called and she replied "high geraniums". We always referred to them as "high geraniums" after that!

Hey Y'all!
I have 5 hydrangeas in the yard and not one has bloomed this year...must look into some fertilizer or something...

Sugar Bear said...

Great idea! I love the hydrangeas. We have been getting some nice blooms on ours as well.
