Getting Fresh

It's the time of year where I want to adorn my home with flowers galore. I found a few less conventional items which would make eye catching vintage floral displays.

Turn a tea set into a sweet floral display. I love the idea of turning one cup over and stacking another on top to add height to the table. Fill the tea pot with one kind of flower and the cups with another.
Left: Winter Pine, Occupied Japan, Fine China Tea Set, S.G.K. $59.00
Right: HOBO CLOWN COFFEE SERVICE - Set of 6 polka dot cups and saucers JAPAN $32.00

I can pictures these on a kitchen island. Use one kind of flower in each container. Cut the stems short and pack the container to create a low dome of blooms.
Left: Vintage Strawberry jar candy dish $17.00
Right: Set of Three vintage strawberry metal bowls $30.00

This set up would be perfect for a bedroom or bathroom. Place pots of flowers in an open piece of vintage luggage. The above left is a Beautiful Blue traincase from Happy Day Vintage (featured on the front page of Etsy just this morning). On the right is a picture taken from Tammy Golson Events Blog.
