The stylists at Victoria magazine filled antique apothecary jars with spring tulips for fresh take on spring table décor.  I’m always a fan of using unique pieces as vases and this idea is right up my alley!
And while it does add an eclectic touch to the table, the overall look they created is still decisively traditional and elegant.

I tried the look at home, moving it from the dining table to my coffee table to give my living room a fresh look in hopes of spring and I was delighted with the results.

Apparently I wasn’t the only one who was enamored by this look… my cat, Catpuccino, spent the afternoon gazing at the artful arrangement.  Was it the apothecary jars that caught his eye?  The tulips? The antique crystal bowl filled with hand-painted Czech eggs or perhaps the Biedermeier wooden tray which collected the lot?  In my online store at The Antiques Diva & Co, we’re offering a great selection of small and large apothecary jars as well as a varied assortment of antiques, vintage pieces and objects of curiosity.

Happy Spring,

The Antiques Diva

    I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something relating
    to this.

  • I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  • Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  • Excellent article. Keep posting such kind of info on your blog.

    Im really impressed by your blog.

  • On lack of in the restaurant is bookstore, where students
    become more willing to work from home line to purchase cramming books on chemistry, civil service, and English literature alongside parents willing to be out inside the rain while they buy the latest
    fashion in notebooks and colored pens due to their primary school children. It
    is just not designed for secure or large-scale application. Due on the extreme speeds with the network, the server accomplishes the 1:

  • Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be helpful to read through content
    from other authors and practice a little something from other web sites.

  • Lovely photos! I love that they creatively used antique apothecary jars as spring decoration. It’s definitely a wonderful idea. Thank you for sharing this! 🙂

  • I’ve seen people use old fruit canning jars as flower vases, but using apothecary jars is new! They’re usually kept on display! Kudos to the decorator!

    • Apologies for the auto response – I’m in Paris on an Antiques Diva trip – but would love to chat with you when I return! In the meantime, if your email is time sensitive please resend with URGENT in the title and I’ll email you as soon as possible!
