Blue and white ginger jars combined with hot pink tulips and pussy willow branches make a perfect spring centerpiece for your kitchen island.
Me again…and I’m back today with some more spring inspiration…oh…and of course…it is blue and white. And yes, if you are counting- this is the third day in a row of spring blue and white posts. Sorry…not sorry! In case you missed it, I shared free blue and white Bunny Easter Artwork that you can print at home. Then yesterday I shared a Chinoiserie-inspired Easter egg craft that you can make using dollar store supplies. Today it is all about a simple kitchen island centerpiece that just screams spring.
What screams spring more than tulips in a vase? How about tulips in a vase times three?!
Our home was originally a ranch style that was remodeled. When the previous owners did the renovation- it became a total open floor plan. The kitchen is pretty much in your face no matter where you are standing! So I work really hard to keep it clutter-free and looking pretty since it is such a focal point of our home. (as we all know, this is harder than it sounds am-i-right?)
One way I (try my best) to do this is by keeping the kitchen island cleared with only a fun centerpiece. I have enjoyed changing this spot up with the seasons and holidays. (To see one of my favorite centerpieces, click here for a citrus and hydrangea centerpiece idea)
To make this spring centerpiece, I pulled three of myvintage Double Happiness Ginger Jars. I have been collecting these the past few years when I see them at estate sales or thrift stores and love the impact they make when bunching two or three together. While these can be hard to come by, it looks like Etsy has quite a collection if you are in the market. Of course, any vases will work you already have on hand and Homegoods usually has a good selection of blue and white vases.
For the flowers, I grabbed a double dozen bunch of hot pink tulips from Trader Joe’s- they have these for $10.99 right now which is hard to pass up.
The tall stems were also found at Trader Joe’s for a couple bucks- called Pussy Willow. This is the first time I have ever bought these and I love the color, texture and height they add to the arrangements. From what I have been reading, if I take them out of water, they can also be used in dried arrangements. Apparently you can also get the stems to root in damp soil. I plan to learn more about these fun flowering stems! (Please chime in below if you have any suggestions!)
Happy Friday friends!
