Green Jars and Wildflowers




I have been wanting to buy the green glass mason jars ever since I saw them. Finding some at my grocery store, I immediately knew exactly what I would use them for. They needed to be in my sunny kitchen, filled with wildflowers - perfect for the summer months.



The sun shines so brilliantly through the green glass, almost giving it a glow. I lined up four mason jars in a wicker basket - so simple and sweet, but really making a statement.



Filling the jars with wildflowers was easy. At the moment, we have a profusion of wild phlox blooming everywhere I look, in the woods. The colors are so amazing, ranging from deep purple, to lavender, to white. On my walk yesterday, I simply found a patch that was not close by anyone's house, so I wouldn't take away their enjoyment of the wild blooms and cut bunches and bunches, placing them in a bag I brought along. When I finished my walk, I filled all four jars with water and the pretty blooms.

The woods will soon have more and different wildflowers for me to use in these jars and I also plan to fill them with daisies from my garden. Simplicity, but oh so pretty :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I've been following your blog since last summer. I look forward to reading your posts. Love those green mason jars, will have to keep my eye out for some. Or maybe I should try dying some of my clear ones. Have a great weekend.

  3. Love the green jars . . . first I have heard/seen . . . I need to find some . . .
    GREEN is my favorite . . .
    Thank you . . . off I go on a search . . .

  4. Green Mason jars? Be still my heart; green is my favourite colour and these jars are gorgeous. What a simply brilliant idea!
    Thank you so much for your kind comment yesterday Vicki; I hope you know how much I treasure your words, and you.

  5. I have those green jars and I need to do this! Thanks for the wonderful idea. Love your photo! Wishing you a wonderful weekend too!

  6. Beautiful! I love them combined with the vibrant purple flowers. So pretty.

  7. Oh, how pretty. Nice color combination and green jars....who knew?

  8. I haven't see these green ones! I'm a big Ball Jar fan, so I will be looking for them. I love that color! Ann

  9. Phlox does spread like crazy and is so fragrant. It's along the roadsides here too...great idea, Vicki. I have some blue Ball jars to use which should do well, I think...:)JP

  10. Your arrangement looks just beautiful, Vicki! Love it! Have a good weekend.

  11. Those are so pretty! I have some blue ones but haven't seen the green! Enjoy your weekend dear friend, HUGS!

  12. Ooh, you reminded me its time to switch up my table to some mason jars. Your green ones would be perfect in my green and white kitchen!

  13. It looks lovely, the green glass is absolutely perfect with wild flowers.

  14. So pretty..Can't wait for the daiseys

  15. Your arrangements are so pretty! You have such great ideas! =)

  16. How lovely. I visited a pottery shop last weekend and the potter had filled many of the vases with wildflowers from her yard.

  17. All colors of flowers look so pretty in the green jars!
    Thanks for visiting.

  18. I was just at a party where they used empty wine bottles as vases for the centerpieces. The green glass of the bottles really makes the colors of the flowers "pop". The jewel tone mason jars are even better!

  19. Absolutely beautiful. I love the colored mason jars also. I must put some flowers in mine. Thanks for the inspiration. Karie

  20. What a simple, beautiful look. I have aqua ones. Haven't seen the green. I need to look for them. This is a lovely vignette.

  21. Simply gorgeous! I bought a case of the green jars but gave all but two away. I love that Phlox grows wild there. I have some planted in my garden, but it's not blooming yet. Looks lovely in the jars! I just finished a wool runner which I will be using soon with a blue jar and Daisies. Just waiting for them to bloom. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  22. Hi Vicki, featuring you at SYC today.

  23. That is a beauty of an arrangement! Love those green mason jars.

  24. Hi Vicky, I have never seen the green jars before and they really look beautiful with the flowers!
