Home Decor, Fresh Vignettes

Nothing brings instant freshness to a space like flowers…but you don’t have to spend a fortune~

Put together whatever you have available…

This kitchen arrangement includes herbs from the garden, basil and parsley, with some blooms and citrus, placed in a variety of jars and vases on a ceramic tray

This arrangement uses flowers and citrus also

daisies & poms with fruit thepaintedapron.com

The yellow vase is elevated on a ceramic tier which holds fruit and additional blooms tucked in around the base.  Candlesticks hold additional blooms instead of candles.  The bright blue runner {2 kitchen towels} really sets off the green and yellow, making a dramatic statement

You can see more photos on Pears Poms and Daisies here

bloomin Ball jars thepaintedapron.com

A black runner adds instant drama and sophistication to these pink and white jars,  but when these same jars are set on a white tray, they look  sweet and dainty             see Bloomin Ball Jars here

An easy way to add a WOW factor is to repeat a single bloom in a grouping of bottles or bud vases like on  Sunflower table

Here’s an easy way to create a large bouquet display with a grouping of jars and vases


You can get a big effect with less stems, see Ball Jar Bouquet here


Bright colors and the unexpected, such as these roses in a “paint can,” provide interest and energy

see Little Miss Fancy Dines here

Combining vegetables with flowers sparks interest.    These Radishes and Roses are surrounded by kale leaves and Swiss chard

Don’t forget eggs!  See the “how to” on Fun with Flowers here

tulips & eggs thepaintedapron.com

Eggs are perfect to use for a brunch or breakfast setting like Bloody Mary Buffet

Colorful vegetables piled high in the kitchen can be enjoyed as eye candy before they’re eaten

Tomatoes, garlic, onion and potatoes are happy to stay on the counter until needed

Bunny Buffet  delicate vegetables can be refreshed with a cold water mist spray to last for several hours

It’s hard to resist a plate stand full of fruit and pastries, as in Autumn Gathering here

And you can always turn a watermelon into a fruit salad basket, see Watermelon Basket here


Use a large tray or basket to make a Functional Centerpiece full of colorful fruit,  plates and utensils.  Everything handy and accessible,  ready to grab and go~


Or Crates Full of Spring spill out vegetables ready for cooking!

Look around and see what you have~ take something fresh and create some magic!
