It’s early spring here in Vermont, the flowers and trees are just beginning to bud. I’ve been craving spring’s flowers and summer’s beautiful colors. After a day out Thrifting with the Gals this week, I wanted to combine a rustic copper pot I found into a centerpiece in our dining room. I found the most beautiful tulips at the grocery store and they matched beautifully with the thrifted copper pot. And then it struck me, so would the colors of terracotta pots! That’s when I started decorating with tulips and terracotta pots!
I have collected terracotta pots over the years at garden shops and flea markets. They come in a variety of sizes, textures, colors, etc… No two are ever alike. That’s what makes decorating with terracotta pots so interesting for me. I love the pots with all the watermarks and ones that look like they have spent many summers in an outdoor garden. I have collected pots as small as my thumb and as large as you can imagine. And if you shop smart, you can find these colorful beauties for as low as .50 cents apiece. Check out the gardener’s terracotta cupboard that my father made me a few years ago that I seem to paint a different color every year.
A Simple Vintage Plates and Windows DIY
Decorating with tulips and terracotta pots on the vintage mantel in our dining room was so fun and I just love all the texture and colorful elements it brings inside. Check out I hung the windows and added the vintage plates above the mantel.
A Copper Bucket
I found a beautiful patina copper bucket while I was out Thrifting with the Gals this week. And couldn’t wait to add a couple of bouquets of these beautiful and colorful tulips. Along with a little greenery that I simply picked up at our local supermarket. The colors just scream spring to me!
Decorating with tulips and terracotta pots was as simple as stacking the pots on the mantel and adding a few things that I love. Like the thrifted teacups, a candle, and some twine.
