Last month I visited Antiques on Second here in Milwaukee and couldn't seem to stop noticing the blue vintage Ball jars. Apparently it stuck with me because ever since, I've been noticing glassware all over the place. I'm not sure how it came to me to use it as kitchen decor, but it did.
I bought clear and blue Ball jars, clear and blue soda bottles, and clear milk bottles from Michaels and Target.
I also bought fake flowers from Michaels. I bought four single stems and four bouquets, which I cut into single stems so that I could distribute them among more vases. Of course you can use real flowers, but gardening isn't my thing, and I don't like to keep real plants in the house with the cats anyway.
I really love the soda bottles.
The combination of the blue and white here makes me very happy.
I'm also in love with my new fake wood backdrop that I previewed on Instagram a couple weeks ago.
Here it is, displayed in my kitchen. Both of these shelves were already installed when we moved in, and the top one has sat largely empty for three and a half years. Decor items are perfect for it because it's too high for me to reach without a chair.
Of course I had a kitty helper assist me with cutting the flowers, arranging the vases, and most importantly, taking the pictures. Does anyone else have an ever present kitty photo helper?
I can't even call this a tutorial because it's just pretty glassware and fake flowers, but I'm so happy with the result. If you need a simple display for virtually any room in your house, this is a great option.
I'm also sharing my kitchen decor as well as some other ideas for kitchen decor using mason jars over on HubPages.
Has anyone else been decorating at home lately?
