Spreading a bit of spring around the house during this cold, wet winter has been on my mind lately.
I've been trying to do that and keep a lid on unnecessary spending for the house. It's been going well but I did have one slip-up a few weeks ago when I found these cool glass bottles, with glass lids, at a thrift store for only $10. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them but they came home with me anyway and have quickly become my fave thing to use for a quick and easy spring centerpiece.
Each one has some natural wear and tear but that just adds to their charm.
I've had them all over my kitchen and dining area since I brought them home. A few flowers in each and I have a simple but pretty spring centerpiece. This is something anyone can do and it's so easy. You could even go the free route and clip a few flowers or greens from your yard. Pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, or complicated.
As far as my own decor, I tend to keep things simple so I either try to stay in the same color family or stick with one type of flower. To me, that makes more of a statement.
While I do love them in the center of the table and on the kitchen island, my favorite spot has been on the white buffet in the dining area. I sometimes struggle with this cabinet because it's so big. I don't like a lot of "stuff" around so this area can end up feeling a bit empty.
My 3 thrifted bottles and some beautiful red tulips make the perfect centerpiece, and just the right touch for Valentine's Day. It's definitely my favorite look so far.
