SPRING FARMHOUSE KITCHEN VIGNETTE

Decorating my kitchen seems to always start with a vignette on my kitchen table. It sets the mood for the rest of the farmhouse kitchen.

This spring I am so inspired by all shades of orange! From creamsicle to burnt orange, I am loving tangy pops of color in my white kitchen!

I hope you get inspired too!

As usual, I started with my very favorite hefty round basket. I’d love to find another one… so I can paint it white. I have so many ideas for a white basket!

The inspiration for using orange are these adorable carrot plates that I have had for decades! Can you see them… the bunny is standing on them!

I nestled a stack of white bowl in the middle of the vignette filled with wild natural straw and 3 real blown-out eggs.
These beautiful soft colored eggs come from my friend’s chickens! I adore free range eggs! Their yolks are deep orange and they whip up so glossy and thick!

Aren’t these bright orange forks, knives and spoons so much fun! We just pick them out of the creamer and use them at dinnertime!

Did you notice the orange cloth in the bottom of the basket. I buy 1/4 yard of any fabric that catches my eye. No ironing, no sewing the edges … I just fold them under and use them for all sorts of things in the kitchen!

I guess I should have know that I am in my “orange” stage when I picked up 6 different orange fabrics at the fabric store a few weeks back!

I added these cute orange and white straws just for fun. Truth be told I love using a straw… but I know that drinking from one over a long period of time will give you lip wrinkles.  So, these cuties are tempting me to pull one out and put it in my iced tea but I ‘m resisting… so far!

This year I’m planting pansies in tea cups. They look so adorable! And my favorite pansy color this year is called Copper Penny!  They add another layer of orange to my vignette!

I was looking for orange parrot tulips for this vignette, but after 2 grocer’s and 3 flower shops I decided that they are not yet in our area.

So, I settled for white and a pink/yellow. I think pink and yellow mixed together make a pretty orange… don’t they?… well, sorta?…. Okay, let’s just use our imaginations!

The tall topiary gives this whole vignette some height. I made so many of these topiaries… they are sooooo easy to put together. Click HERE for a topiary diy!

I sure hope you have been inspired to pick a color that is your favorite for the season and start to create!!!!

    I love it! The colours are so pretty and cheerful. I’ve used aqua and soft green and yellow this spring. We still have tons of snow on the ground so it’s looking very spring like inside. Have a beautiful day.

    I love the orange! I recently added new pillows to my living room for spring, and two of them were orange. Since then, I have seen two blogs featuring orange for spring. It just affirms that I made a good choice:) Thanks!

    I love your orange knives, forks & spoons, Yvonne! Do you remember where you found them? I would love to have some colored flatware for different times of the year!

    I think this is the most beautiful Easter table vignette I have ever seen, and I LOVE the idea for buying a small piece of fabric to stick in baskets and such. Thanks for sharing.

    Your tabletop vignette is darling Yvonne. I love the touches of orange. I’ve heard you can get lip wrinkles from smoking but not from drinking through straws. I’ve heard that drinking your coffee through a straw prevents tooth staining so that’s what I’ve been doing, but I already have enough lip wrinkles so now I’m in a quandary!!! LOL!
    Thanks for sharing and have a blessed weekend,

    Hi Yvonne, I am digging the orange. I am a child of the seventies and am loyal to orange. The topiary is lovely. I apologize for not stopping by but I have injured myself and I barely appear anywhere these days. blessings, olive

    Its fun to be able to change your accent colors, my kitchen is black and white and I always have an arrangement on my center island with a pop of an accent color, it is my favorite place to play~ I love your soft tangerines, Yvonne, and what a great idea to keep those colorful straws at the handy! I love how you mix real plants with the ceramic pieces, and the eggs of course are brilliant!

    Your vignette is beautiful. I love that you chose to use orange hues. The copper penny pansies bring out the golden yellow hues in the tulips. So pretty!
    Thanks for sharing, Yvonne!
    Have a great weekend,

    Cuteness overload! I did a post about the color orange recently. At one time, it was my least favorite color but I’ve taken quite a liking to it more recently and your beautiful vignettes serve only to reinforce my new found fondness Yvonne. Sooooo pretty!!

    Yvonne, I love your style! I found the link to your blog on The Cottage Market on a photo of a coffee bar you displayed on your kitchen island. It was put together in a neat multi level galvanized tin display. I was wondering where you found it?

    Yvonne, I had posted a week or so ago that you have so inspired me that I was thinking of starting a blog of my own. Well, I did it!! I’ve only just started and I have a lot of things still to add but I wanted to thank you for giving me the inspiration to do it! I love your blog and your style – I can only hope my blog evolves into one as beautiful as yours! God bless you! Darlene
