White Pitchers and Flowers = Beauty



I have always loved white ironstone pitchers and flowers, so putting them together just equal beauty in my eyes!! My Mom has a large white ironstone pitcher that she used to serve iced tea in. She stopped using it for that purpose when she realized the tea started staining the pitcher. She put some flowers in it and put it in the dining room. I have always loved that pitcher! I went online and found lots of beautiful flowers in ironstone pitchers and I thought I would share all this loveliness with you!


Yellow tulips always look so vibrant in a white pitcher!


I have ever picked wildflowers like this and put them in a pitcher for a country look. I love the glass cloche with the teacups too! What a great vignette!


I love the addition of the white starfish with this pitcher of white roses. I also really love that green and white tablecloth too!


This white pitcher is gorgeous! I love the relief detail on it. The pink roses are gorgeous and I love that it is displayed on an antique white chair!


I think the person that arranged this used a soup tureen for a vase for those lovely flowers and put it with a white pitcher of flowers and I see part of a lovely white platter. This would look wonderful on a mantel or side board.


Heliotrope is one of my favorite flowers! The scent from this flower is just like nothing else I have ever smelled-I love it!! When they start blooming you are going to see me arranging them with some peachy colored roses in a pitcher for sure! I love the relief work on this pitcher too!


What a wonderful combination of dark purple and white! Tulips are perfect for this time of year. I could see this on my Easter table!


Peonies just say spring in my book! I love this combo!


Lilacs are another lovely Spring flower! That is one thing I really miss living in the South that we had in the North-lilacs! The smell of them is intoxicating! My grandmother had 2 huge lilac bushes-one white and one purple at her house. She would always cut them and bring them in the house and arrange them in white and green pitchers and vases all around her house.


These blush pink roses look gorgeous in this pitcher. I can just picture this in my bedroom. Wouldn't that be lovely to wake up to!


I can never get tired of using lavendar in arrangement or by themselves, both dried and fresh. This picture shows a simple combination of glass,white, lavendar,linen and a lovely mirror-just beautiful!

Well I know it was alot to take in but go find your lovely white pitchers and fill them with flowers! We all could use a bit of Spring in our homes right now! Enjoy!

I love this collection of images. So bright and cheery on a rainy, gray Florida morning.

Flowers in pitchers always look so much more inviting to me than in vases!

Sherri these pictures are so beautiful! I love ironstone pitchers....

You can grow lilacs here in NC! I did at my other house and this summer bought a lilac plant from a local nursery and planted it here at this house. Go check out your local nursery, I bet they will have some this spring. Usually Lowes and Home Depot don't cary them.

Hugs,

I love old white ironstone - especially pitchers - and have a few mixed with blue Ball jars in my kitchen.
These photos are lovely!

Thanks for commenting on my new kitchen chandelier - I'm loving it so much!

Have a great weekend Sherri - looks like warmer, sunny days are coming, yippee!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
