Hi friends and happy March 1st! Wow hard to believe we are three months into 2018. Last month I introduced to you a new feature, a “club” where all of us blue and white lovers can come together and celebrate what we all love so very much. One page turn in almost any magazine and you can see blue and white fever is practically an epidemic:) I pick a subject every time I have a “virtual meeting” of our blue and white club and today is all about using ginger jars. Truth be told, I never met a ginger jar I didn’t just love! Super versatile, always beautiful, whether alone or a pair, or even as a grouping for that matter. Lordy knows I love them as they are all over my home, I generally like them as a pair or in a grouping/vignette. Also so love them outside as you will see below and they make fabulous vessels for floral arrangements as well. So lets take a look at ginger jars of all shapes and sizes in action. And just in case, you get a little of ginger jar fever, all porcelains are 20% today only! And here we go….. _______________ A simply elegant and classic arrangement in my living room, love a cluster of jars of different sizes and shapes with a focal piece as the center, in this case a beautiful orchid. Took this picture from the Maison Objet show in Paris about 6 years ago…..what’s not to love! Ginger jars + a wedding = PERFECTION! India Amory Flowers and ginger jars go together like peanut butter and jelly, a large ginger jar simply makes the most beautiful container for a springy arrangement, Kelly Nan A console in my home filled with as many ginger jars as I could fit:) One of my favorite mantle “looks”, jars, flowers and a pair of Staffordshire dogs Love my ginger jars filled with giant sunflowers in the summertime, really looks fantastic The idea of ginger jars on a large center hall table is a favorite look of mine, add a few books and you are done! Traditional Home I remember this beautiful evening, a fun summer parry we threw a few years ago where a line of ginger jars took center stage filled with hydrangeas One of the many renditions of my living room mantle, love seeing a bevy of ginger jars often filled with flowers, such a foolproof formula My bathroom that always has a place for a pair of ginger jars:) Parker Kennedy clearly knows that ginger jars outside are always a great idea (I have even kept mine out in winter with no problem) Atlanta Homes Have fond memories of this luncheon where I filled my chunky ginger jars with all kinds of wonderful spring flowers This is so my kind of wedding, one that includes not one but many ginger jars as part of the decor, Strictly Weddings This is so pretty, just love the entire vignette and mix of pieces with ginger jars, plates and vases, fabulous! One of my favorite places to see ginger jars is outdoors, they work so beautifully with the backdrop of all the green in nature, this was a showhouse I had done, where I used ginger jars to fill a console Gorgeous outdoor setting with Hadley Court And yes ginger jars have a place, everywhere and that includes bathrooms, Frontgate Seeing a big cluster of porcelain ginger jars is a favorite look, proof you cannot have too many! Love how Mark Sikes used this pair of chunky ginger jars as fabulous accents outdoors Always a fan of “clusering” ginger jars together either on top of a console or on the bottom as I did above One of my favorite ways to dress up a mantle is to add a pair of ginger jars to the side of the mantle and fill in from there, it is such a foolproof method My kitchen island changes up often, but it almost always includes a pair of ginger jars Always love the look of a larger piece in the center, in this case a tall vase filled with cherry blossoms flanked by a pair of two large flat tops How pretty is this! A customer used her bird jars and filled them with flowers for her beautiful kitchen island This is a customers photo and I LOVE how she filled my chunky dragon ginger jar with this explosion of hydrangeas, fabulous! ______________ This post makes me want to go do some serious tweaking/rearranging! How do you like to use ginger jars? Solo, pairs, filled with flowers? There are so many ways to enjoy and use ginger jars…. Thanks as always for stopping in for our “club meeting”, would love to know your thoughts on ginger jars and how/where you most like to use them. This exchange of info is such a great way to get ideas from one another, you can never know too much on the subject of porcelains:) If you have some ideas of what to discuss or a subject you would like to know more about for our next meeting, I am all ears.
