Glass: Use a glass collection as a centerpiece to your dining area. The mismatched look will create a conversation among guests.

Even a few blooms can steal the show when surrounded by a supporting cast of glassware and linens in the same colorway. Try lilacs with vintage bottles in shades of pale amethyst, plus natural linen and pale pink runners.

Use soft shades of lavender. Create your own purple haze of Provence lavender fields by placing simple purple flower stems in antique lavender glass bottles. Take it a step further by infusing sparkling water (Perrier of course!) with rich purple berries, such as blueberries or blackberries.

I love little individual arrangements. Even if "arrangement" simply means a single stem of lilac blossoms in an old apothecary bottle.

Tip: If mealtimes start to feel routine, there are plenty of ways to get out of a rut that don’t involve spending hours preparing extravagant dishes. To make cooking fun and less of a chore, try getting creative with the atmosphere. “I always pick music that is upbeat and makes people relaxed and happy,” Glover says, adding that a hand-printed tablecloth or flowers from the garden can be good conversation starters. With a pleasant ambience and meal presentation, no one will notice they’re eating the same old pasta dish.
