Kayla's day job is in the wholesale department at Del Sol L.C. but her true passions lie in event planning and triathlon. You can find her on the weekends with the Riehl Events creative team or standing on the podium at a local sprint triathlon. She plans to complete her first Ironman in 2012.

If you are anything like me, every time the seasons change you get itchy to re-arrange the furniture. You know, mix it up a little! And no matter what you do, there is always that one empty corner, constantly nagging you to fill it. Well, I found a solution to the nagging and the itching. I call it my seasonal vase. I create a different arrangement for each season.  

With yesterday being the first official day of summer, it is time to transition the vase from spring to summer. To make your own, simply take a stroll through your favorite craft store and look for items that remind you of summer. I was in the mood to be on a sandy beach with a margarita in my hand so I went for pieces with a tropical flair.  

Some other possible summer vases include sunflowers; mini beach balls; lemons, limes and other colorful fruit; seashells; or anything that says summer to you. 

Making a seasonal arrangement is easy, cheap, and fast. It will freshen up a room and save your relationship from the strain of asking your man to help you with the heavy lifting. Now just relax in the sun with a cold drink, admire your summery seasonal vase and contemplate what you will do for fall!
