Flowers and Inventive Ways to Display

With both spring and autumn we enjoy beautiful flushes of flowers just begging to be picked and displayedFrom the contrast of beauty to the rustic of an old tin
Metal buckets are oh so in especially if you like Shabby Chic style

I love how here they mix the crispness of white china vases with jam jars

( My Summerhouse)
Or placed simply into a crate

Perhaps you have a stash of ribbons just begging to be wrapped around a vase

Or pretty fabrics tied with lace

Maybe corks are the new way to hold flowers in place

Or simply line the vase in sliced limes or oranges! So many wonderful ideas to choose from. What about you? Do you have any other fun ways to display flowers? Enjoy the flowers where-ever you are today.

Sharing over at Feathered Nest Friday


  1. I love the cork idea. I'm going to give it a try. Lovely pictures! x Sharon

  2. They are all so so kind!
    I love glass jar and metal buchet most af all.
    Sometimes I use used tomatoes tin-cans, they look so shabby
    Have a nice day

  3. Hi fiona, second try at leaving a message!!! I was just wondering if you might be free sometime on the holidays to catch up for tea? I am dying to go to Annie P paperie in Claremont, i think they do afternoon tea there also and i am sure you would love it. Have you been? They do have a website, its easy to find on google.
