A Fresh Take! DIY Citrus Vases

Sweet, sweet summertime. Lazy afternoons at the pool, tennis, golf, and the beach! Summer brings so many opportunities to make lasting memories with the family. To celebrate Summer, we've put together a colorful and classic craft that will add life to any home decor. It even matches our Spring Floral collection perfectly! The bright pinks, yellows, and greens of the citrus coordinate the floral patterns of the Spring Floral Collection. Plus what is more summery than a beautiful bouquet of fresh cut flowers and bold colored citrus fruit!





If you’re wanting to incorporate some sunshine into your home décor or are just looking for a fun activity to do with your children, we love this DIY lemon slice vase craft. By using two clear vases, one slightly smaller than the other, you can wedge lemon slices in between the two vases for gorgeous summertime décor.


For baby girl we love the Augusta bubble in Spring Floral for a bright, summer outfit. This bubble features beautiful ruffles on the sleeves to create an angel sleeve look. The green ribbon detailing and bow at the chest, ties the outfit together perfectly. For a softer look for baby boy we love the Andrew Bubble in Yellow. The green pipping in this bubble matches the green floral pattern of the Augusta Bubble perfectly. For a touch of personalization, we love the idea of adding a monogram to this bubble.


Toddler girl will look adorable in the Augusta Dress. With angel sleeves and bright florals you can't go wrong. Accessorize this look with the Scalloped Hair Bow in Pearl Pink for a polished look from head to toe. The Button Tab John John in Yellow will look dapper on any toddler boy. This John John features green piping at the sides and button closures at the shoulders for easy dressing.


The Paperbag Bow Short in Spring Floral and Ruffled Henley in Solid Pink makes for a classic big girl outfit. Whether she's out for dinner at the club or playing with friends, this outfit is great for all things summer. For big boy, nothing quite says summer like yellow. That's why we love the Solid Short Sleeve Polo in Yellow with the Classic Short in White Twill. This outfit matches beautifully with any of the other pieces in this collection for a coordinating family look.
