An accidental romantic summer centerpiece & sneak peek

A few weeks ago... there was a little oops.
As I played in the garden, I started tucking some of those delicate
and  little rose branches on the arbor. 

Just a little nudge for them to grow the right way. 
For them to intertwine and cover the arbor with their beautiful blooms...

when it happened.

There was a branch was about 4' long that had popped out of place and that I was trying to adjust. These are tiny delicate rose blooms that smell absolutely incredible.

And as I nudged and tucked and started to tie the branch to the right spot- I hear the snap.
And that beautiful branch heavy with roses was broken. 

As I sat there holding it and feeling a little sad about what I just did... I walked over and placed it on the outdoor dining table so I could finish what I was doing with the arbor.
And that was when inspiration hit.

An accident into a beautiful simple romantic centerpiece.
It was perfect.  I set the table, grabbed my camera and snapped a few photos

 and then brought that beautiful blooming branch inside to enjoy.

Oh and yes... that is another sneak peek of the bathroom renovation. :)

I am off to pick up an antique piece of furniture that I am already in love with...
 but that is a couple hours away so hoping it is worth the drive.
 Tune into my instagram stories for a few first looks at it.
