Easy Spring Table Setting

Spring Dining Table

I’m back to show you how I used that $13 grocery store bouquet. My intentions when buying the flowers were for this purpose, I was wanting to brighten up the dining table and make it feel fresh and Spring like. I was looking for something simple and knew I would use my blue canning jars as vases. 


Spring Flowers in Blue Mason Jars

I think a blue mason jar should be used for everything. In my house they are our drinking glasses, vases, soup storers, and anything else I can fit into one. I still want to try the layered salad in a mason jar for summer; I will have to add that to my to-try-list. 


Spring Dining Room in a Log Home

That green cabinet in the corner is getting moved into my craft room, it’s a great hiding place for all those things you want to keep but have no place to store them. And of course the dog had to get into the shot, I normally shoo her out of the pictures, but decided who cares if she’s in the shot so I just snapped away. 


Spring Inspiration

I do think Spring is trying to come to Michigan we are no longer in a deep freeze and the air has a hit of warmth in it. We have had a 40 degree day and it felt like a heat wave. Are any of you experiencing signs of Spring in your neck of the woods yet?

    1. Debi, Yes I am in lower Michigan and we still have snow on the ground, next will come mud and flooding. Not looking forward to that.

  4. Oh my gosh! That one photo of the blue mason jar is just spectacular! So glad warmer days are on your horizon. It’s been in the 30s here for several days which is so unusual this time of year for us. However, the Bradford pear trees are blooming in the yard so it looks like spring even though it doesn’t feel like it!

    1. Jane, how nice to have the trees blooming, that would be wonderful. We had snow again last night, I don’t think this winter will ever end.

    1. Susan, we had snow again last night, I think there will be no spring here at this rate.

    1. Marie, so sorry to hear about your FIL how sad 🙁 Much of my time has been taken up also caring for my 94 year old Gram who had a fall. Glad you have you back 🙂

  12. love the flowers . . . love the ‘vases’ . . . hope spring makes its appearance for you soon.

    I just found green ball jars to use for my tea.

    1. Carol I purchased the green ones too and cant wait to use them 🙂

  13. I think Michigan weather is very very similar to Montreal weather – we’ve had little teases of Spring too – sooo exciting!
    LOVE your flowers in the mason jars – I always split up my bouquets too – ( I feel ripped off if I don’t LOL )
    And Dawn I absolutely LOVE your table and chairs – just gorgeous!

    1. Suzan, thank you for noticing the table and chairs. It is an old library table and chairs out of a local school that closed their doors. Everything is thick solid oak. Hubby picked up the table and 8 chairs for $200. I have had the set forever and it’s still a piece I love and would never get rid of.
