Easy DIY Dahlia Centerpiece

Happy Monday everyone!

Summer is simply flying by! August is right around the corner, which means... we're coming up on my favorite time of year - FALL!

I thought that a little early Fall inspiration was in order with this incredibly simple (and gorgeous!) Dahlia centerpiece I found on Karin Lidbeck's Blog. August & September are peak season for these pretty flowers. What better way to showcase them than with this?

It's so simple, but makes such a statement on a table!

To make it yourself, you'll need a shallow basin that holds water, Dahlias in a variety of colors, and some floating candles.

Cut the stems short to float the flower heads, add the candles, and Ta-Da - you're done!

This would make such a beautiful centerpiece for your reception tables! Doing rectangular tables? Long rectangular, or a mix of square and rectangular, basins would be fantastic too! You could even group smaller basins of different heights for a totally different look as well.

Are you getting married in early Fall? What seasonal flowers are you using at your wedding?
