Hello Dear Readers!
Happy June! Where has the time gone?
It seems like we have gone from Spring to the warmth of Summer so quickly.
Here we are, the first Monday in June and it’s time for another magnificent
Monday Morning Blooms! A day when I join my wonderfully talented and most
creative Monday Morning Blooms friends, Lidy, Mary and Pam
to present some fabulous floral inspiration to you, our dear readers.
Their beautiful images and links to their posts are at the end of this post.
Today’s common theme is containers with labels.
It was easy for me to decide what containers to use today. I present:
Flower Arrangements In Vintage French Canning Jars
I have used my French canning jars previously in another post in my former home.
If you missed it you can see that post here: Vintage French Canning Jars
Luckily, I did not pack these beautiful vintage jars
as I knew I would surely use them.
Let’s begin with the flowers that I selected
to create the three flower arrangements
for the table today:
Alstroemeria (Lukka Orange)
Fuji Mums (yellow)
Gerbera Daisies (yellow and orange)
Spray Roses (yellow)
I selected flowers to coordinate with the labels of each canning jar.
For the Citron labeled jar I chose blue Hydrangeas, Chamomile for filler,
yellow Fuji mums, yellow Spray Roses, and yellow Snapdragons.
Lemons and mandarin oranges were indeed the choice
to add to the tablescape of the vintage jars.
An orange segment on the fork . . . a signature of Mary’s creations.
Citrus is such a wonderful thing in decorating our homes for summer.
The perfect colors that speak sunshine.
The jars are vintage French and the labels
were added much later and not necessarily
the original jar and label combination.
I purchased these wonderful jars in California over a year ago
and they accompanied me on the plane back home.
In the Sirop de Mandarine jar, I used Gerbera Daisies, both orange and yellow,
Alstroemeria, and Orange Kalanchoe.
The third vintage French jar is a petite one.
Love that sweet label.
Flowers of choice for the petite canning jar were yellow Spray Roses,
yellow Gerbera Daisies and orange Kalanchoe.
I found some wonderful petite lemon filled cupcakes.
Perfect for just needing a little bit of sweetness after a meal.
The blue and white tray is new . . . well new to me.
I found it at my fave consignment shop . . . where else.
One can always use another beautiful and always versatile tray.
I love the vibrant colors in this tablescape that tells us that summer is here.
Well, maybe the official start of summer is June 21st;
however, it sure feels like summer here!
It was fun putting this tablescape/vignette together as I so love color
and using vintage items whenever I can.
And now it is time to visit my sweetest of the sweet
Monday Morning Blooms friends.
