Coffee Table Centrepiece

I like to switch it up a lot here on Simcoe Street. On my budget, this means using things that I can find around the house in new ways to give the same old stuff and whole new feel. 
It can also mean decorating with fruit :)

Today, I'm using a beautiful old silverplated bowl found at a thrift store in Oakville over the summer (originally $12, but I got it for $9 - don't you love feeling like you got a deal?) and a bunch of clementines that we got at the grocery store as a coffee table centrepiece. 
I love how it adds a pop of bright orange and texture to the room.

And so you can see the bowl a little better:

You can spot the oranges in our living room here

An unexpected bonus? As I'm lazing about watching TV it is a great reminder to reach for a healthy snack rather than something more sinful...

Have you decorated with fruit lately?

  1. Oh definitely! Green granny smith apples go great in our wooden bowl on our kitchen table. And I'm like you, I think it helps remind me to eat them.
