Easy Summer Centerpiece

Summer Centerpiece?  Yeah I am clinging to Summer.  Technically it is not over for almost another month.  Since we do not have school aged children then we are sticking to that.  Don't get me wrong.  I LOVE FALL!  It is my favorite season.  However, I feel like this Summer went by way. too. fast!  So I am doing a final salute to Summer on my blog by posting this centerpiece idea.  It is so easy and can most likely be done with items already in your home.
I used mason jars, lemon slices, and flowers picked from my mom's amazing yard.  I positioned the lemon slices around the edges and then filled the jars with water.  I then stuck in the flowers.  And done!  That was it.  This is a great idea if you are throwing a Summer party, because it is simple, cheap, and looks nice.  

Side note: If you want the flowers to last longer then you need to put the flowers in a separate smaller container inside the mason jars.  The acidity of the lemons makes the flowers not last as long.  They will only last about 2 days if you stick them in the lemon water.
