My Love of Lemons

I love lemons.

I love the smell of them, love the taste of them in certain foods, and their yellow color makes me happy. In fact, one of my favorite decor ideas in the spring through summertime is just to have a glass bowl of lemons in the middle of my table. Not mind-blowingly creative, but it always looks fresh and pretty! Here’s some other beautiful ideas that I’ve stumbled across using lemons in decor, whether it’s for everyday or for a special event.

How easy is this? Stack a few in a tall glass and add water.
You wouldn’t even need a special event to use this idea. Arrange lemon slices in a mason jar and use for a flower bouquet. So pretty! Photo courtesy of cowboy-takemeaway.tumblr.com

Lastly, since my family loves to make a lot of fresh-squeezed lemonade in the summer (and year round), I had to throw this one in. I would love to have a big ole’ dispenser like that!

  1. We have a lemon tree in our backyard that produces WAAYYY more lemons than we could ever use. Thanks for the ideas for other uses. I especially want to try that wreath.

  2. I love the look of a lemon, too.
    They look so much like summer.
    I specially love the lemons in the lemonaid container.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. So much inspiration! This reminded me of my favorite way to eat a freshly picked lemon: Sliced with a reeses peanut butter cup. Delicious. 😉
