Hello my friends! I am happy to show you how you can use Decorating with Cherry Blossoms & Mason Jars in your home and for entertaining.
It is simple and beautiful all year long.
Tip number one…Head to your local thrift store for a few mason jars, vases or a vessel that you like. Any style that suits your home and taste.
As you know, I like blue. That includes vases, jars, vintage bottle and demi-johns.
My bottles and jars are various shapes and sizes. Some are skinny, dark blue, square and chippy.
For an assorted look, tie vintage lace ribbon or even a hankie around the mouth of the jar.
Tip number two for Decorating with Cherry Blossoms & Mason Jars:
Find some blooming cherry trees in your neighborhood. Or maybe you even have some in your own yard.
We live in a condominium complex with LOTS of fruitless cherry trees. The good thing is that the trees do have blossoms a few times a year. (Lucky for me, right?)
Before my recent tea party. I saw all of the trees blooming the week before. I could hardly contain my excitement! REAL blossoms for my party? Perfection!
The morning of the tea party my Hubby grabbed his clippers and came back with about ten branches. Hmmm…That was a good start. Once he saw my vision with several vases and jars on the bar, he knew exactly what I needed. About 20 minutes later he can back with arm fulls of cherry tree branches.
I filled each vessel with the branches. Wow! what a dramatic look without costing a penny for flowers. Just for variety, I like the extra blossoms left on the counter. I really like the texture and natural feel it gives, don’t you?
It is simple, easy and fun to try Decorating with Cherry Blossoms & Mason Jars, isn’t it?
I was sad when all of the blossoms started to fall off. I enjoyed them immensely all week long. It also was a great reminder of the fun tea party and of Spring.
So what do you think? Are you going to try Decorating with Cherry Blossoms & Mason Jars soon? I hope you do, and let me know all about it.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
