A Summer Patio Coffee Table

A South Florida summer patio needs to be 
low maintenance and heat tolerant.
 A few tropical elements are all that's needed.
 A wire basket filled with oyster shells.
Up-cycling from oyster appetizers!
 A few found shells.
A large pot of colorful bromeliads.
On top of the dresser is a small pot
filled with herb markers tucked into
 the pine cone filled basket.
The twiggy wreath hangs on the salvaged
 window. I tossed a pair of colorful garden
 gloves over the top.
I'm using them as a 'bow'.
They were $1.00 at The Dollar Tree.
I know, I know, the poinsettia is leftover
 from Christmas. But it's still thriving 
and grows well down here. I'm thinking
  Red-White & Blue for summer.
