Hey friends! Today I am so excited to join The Pinterest Challenge hosted by my good friend Cindy at County Road 407! The Pinterest Challenge is a group of talented ladies that get together once a month to put our personal spin on inspiring decor found on Pinterest!
If you’re coming over from County Road 407, isn’t Cindy’s take on spring kitchen counter decor gorgeous?
I’m sharing some spring centerpieces and vignettes I put together in our kitchen. At the beginning of the year, I decided that I would only decorate with things that were in season in my area or growing in our garden. Spring in Central California comes earlier than most parts of the country and our summers are long, so we are at the tail end of our spring flowers this time of year.
One of my favorite spring flowers are the yellow blooms from our sweet bloom bushes and I had to include them in my centerpiece on our kitchen island. They live up to their name with their light sweet fragrance. I also had to show off one of the large grapefruits off of our grapefruit tree!
Another flower we have in abundance this time of year are violas. They don’t grow well in our summer heat, but they do quite well here in spring and fall and I’ve even had some make it through the winter some years when the temperatures didn’t get below freezing. The lemons are from our lemon tree.
Can you tell I love scales? I also love vintage bottles, lavender and the tiny fragrant blossoms from our Texas umbrella tree.
Last but not least I decorated one of my three tier trays. I used ivy, sweet broom, arugula blooms, lavender and seed pods from our Texas umbrella tree.
That’s it for me! I hope you enjoyed how I spruce up my kitchen counters for spring.
