When we had a family gathering a little while back, I got inspired to try a couple of vignettes with some flowers that had been given to me. They didn’t turn out terrific, but I really enjoy doing them. They are far more difficult to get “just right” than it would seem … mostly they seem to come off over-done or amateurish. So far, I’m in the amateur category!
This is the “Happy Flower” vignette in the front hall. I used a tarnished silver frame from Pier One, a deep green scarf gifted to me from one of my brother Adam’s travels, three sunflowers, a clear glass vase, and pebble stones from the kids’ outdoor play area.
And here is the “Cozy Kitchen” vignette. I used some cooking books, a clock gifted to us for our wedding from my Aunt and Uncle, a pottery collection I picked up at a garage sale, and a mix of flowers and greenery.
P.S. If you like to pin it up over on Pinterest, I’ve started a Board dedicated to vignettes — mine and others for inspiration. Check it out for a giggle to see the epic vignette fails of “Roses and Man Socks” as well as “Daily Life”!
