What do you think?

I am planning a party (albeit a bit of a "surprise" party) and I am desperately looking for some inspiration for my atmosphere. What do you think of these? I don't know if I am married to the blue look but I was thinking maybe green? With lemons/limes around to complete the summery feel? Tell me what you think....
"To create this illuminating centerpiece, place a glass vase inside another that is slightly larger (secure them with floral adhesive), and then pour tinted water in between them. Pillar candles are best for this project; not only are they pretty, but their weight will further anchor the interior vase. For added light play, make a series of these centerpieces in different shades of the same hue (a few extra drops of food coloring will yield the desired contrast). "

Oh, I think that would be even prettier in green! And so summery with lemons and limes used in the theme.

Thanks for the kind words on what I mentioned on my blog!

Green and yellow would be pretty (especially yellow, I personally love it!), but that blue in the photo is just GORGEOUS.

Hi! I love this idea! And I think that it would be beautiful with green and/or yellow with lemons and limes! That would be beautiful! I already saved this idea for myself on the martha site! Thanks for showing this one on your blog!!

I always let the food or drink inspire me and then take it from there!

The limes would be just perfect to this! Something about limes & the summer that just goes well together! You might even want to throw in some fern leaves.
I like the new look of your blog. Fits the season well!
