A recent trip to the local Farmer’s Market inspired this post about kitchen vignettes.  I saw some gorgeous sunflowers and knew they had to come home with me. I have such a weakness for flowers. I just had to use these in a vignette. Today, I would love to share with you some great tips for creating a kitchen vignette of your own.  It is something that is so simple to assemble. You can use items you already have on hand, and change it whenever you want to create a new look.

First, grab a tray or a pretty platter to place your vignette upon. I’m sure you have something that will work. I used a silver tray that I had on hand. Some twenty-two years ago, I received a few as wedding gifts. They have tarnished over time, but I chose not to polish them. I like the antique look.  Second, grab some flowers or a small plant.  Most grocery markets carry fresh flowers and small plants at a very inexpensive cost.  Often, I will just go outside to my garden and gather a bouquet. You can use a pretty vase, pitcher, teapot, jar, or other container you have on hand to place your flowers into. Get creative.

Finally, assemble some items in different sizes and textures to place upon your tray or platter. You want to have varying heights and textures in your display.  I chose some blue and white teacups so that they would be handy for my morning tea.

On the other side of my tray, I placed a honey pot along with a creamer filled with spoons. I love honey in my morning tea.  I also placed a coffee server upon the tray for my husband’s coffee.

It is so much fun to create a kitchen vignette. Hopefully, I have inspired you to search those cabinets, and find things that you would love to display in your kitchen arrangement. We all have items that would make beautiful displays.  You just have to think outside of the box, be creative, and shop your house.
