Small Pitcher Vases …Floral Friday

This week, I chose three small vases that are shaped like pitchers. This type of container is fun and convenient to use for easy, breezy projects. Since this week has been quite hectic, I settled for the simplicity factor. I combined the vases with readily available filler elements so the finished projects enhance places that need just a touch of pizzazz.

There are a couple of mulberry bushes on the vacant lot next to my house. I can rarely harvest the ripened berries before the robins and blue jays gorge themselves on the purple goodness. I snipped two small stems that contained unripened berries. The stems are now in a sky-blue crackle-glass pitcher vase.

The backyard is adjacent to a steep river bank. There are patches of tall grasses that are out of reach of the lawn mower and Weed Eater. The tops appeared to be perfect for a minimalist display. A handful of grass tops were trimmed to size and placed inside of a small, vintage Ewer pitcher vase from the late 1960s.

A batch of dry elements from a recently deconstructed winter project were still in a pile on the project counter. I selected three grassy stems and three formed wood stems and installed them inside a small, vintage department store pitcher vase. Simplicity this fancy is practically effortless.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Luke 17:6 from the Holman Christian Standard Bible. “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed,” the Lord said, ‘you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.'”
