St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, friends, and so is Spring! YAY!! Today I’m so excited to join a few very talented ladies in sharing our antique crocks and how we decorate with our crocks for Spring, hosted by Cindy over at County Road 407 Blog. I hope you’ll stop by and visit every one of them! If you are joining me here today from Christy Little @ Our Southern Home, welcome, and I am so very glad you stopped by. Let’s Decorate!
Right away, I knew I wanted to decorate my antique crocks with white tulips and greenery to incorporate Spring and Saint Patrick’s Day. Simple whites and greens speak Irish to me, and throw in an antique crock, how could you go wrong? So where to begin? First, I gathered the two crocks I inherited from my mother and a couple of other small crocks I had around the house.
I ordered two dozen white tulips from our local florist, as we don’t have many floral options here in Vermont in March… No Trader Joe’s, can you believe that? I was, however, able to purchase some greenery, baby breath, and daisies at our local supermarket, which would be the foundation for the floral bouquets I had in mind.
Antique Crocks & White Tulips
I filled a glass vase with water and placed it into the middle of one of the crocks. Then started to fill it with the various greens and baby’s breath that I found in the floral section of our local supermarket. Once I had the greens arranged in abundance, I added the white tulips one by one for 12 into each crock.
A Copper Penny
Once the tulips were arranged the way I liked, I added an old copper penny to the vase, which will keep the tulips from drooping. See and learn more in the post, How a Penny Can Keep Tulips From Drooping.
I hope you like how they came out, friends!
I also shared a post with all the details of this very simple DIY “Vintage Teacup Spring Mantel” here.

I accentuated the antique crock centerpiece on the table with a few antique dishes, chargers, champagne flutes, and a few scattered white ceramic farm animals.
Keeping in mind that Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, I added a few sweater pillows and blankets to the chairs.
I also found and added a little brown crock filled with daisies to the collection of crocks on the table.
And a few old tin Sherbert bowls that I found thrifting.
