Summery Farmhouse Centerpiece

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Summery Farmhouse CenterpieceIt’s July and in Georgia that means two things…it’s hot and it’s time for peaches! A trip to my favorite produce stand in the north Georgia mountains with my BFF Nan netted me some wonderful July Flame peaches so I thought I would share them with you. (Wish I really could…they’re yummy!) And while they last, I decided to make them the star of a simple summery farmhouse centerpiece! Got to keep them in easy reach, you know!

Add that to the scent of lemon verbena and you have the perfect match! And best of all…it only took five minutes to make…no kidding!
