I had so much fun putting this island display together. My inspiration came from a decorative china plate that I found thrifting last year. The last item I pulled in is the print of the an old postcard. I found it online and printed it up at home. It was PERFECT for the set up. A few days ago, I found the companion man to go along with her.....next year I'll pair them up!
Here are some shots of all of it....I hope it makes you happy for Spring like it does for me!
Similar to my porch design, I used a large galvanized tray as the grounding piece. I placed it on top of a pretty embroidered runner and added a few things at each of the ends.
Left end of the island:
The plate that started my design sits at the end with a pot of yellow geraniums...golden yellow became my accent color to the green.
Right end of the island:
More pics of the close-ups:
The print that I framed in a gold frame sits next to a vintage light cover placed on it's end, and a vintage bottle sits atop a stack of books next to one of my vintage postcards and some clover.
A vintage china candy dish sits among the golden flowers and the blue forget me not bundle. Since the postcard and the china plate both had forget-me-nots on them, I included them in the display. I pinned my vintage clover brooch to the ribbon for a charming touch of green.
The very center of the display holds a planted bush with a real birds nest nestled on the top. I added some green cabbage roses to tie in the color and the use of the large cabbage in the centerpiece.
On the backside, I added a simple plate and a little green book that we picked up on our honeymoon in Canada.
