My Chair Vignette with Fresh Flowers

If you know me, you might have guessed I would put my vignette in the garden and use fresh flowers.

I picked up this sweet pink chair on the curb late last summer. Someone had put it in the trash, and I knew it was perfect for my garden. I adore the chippy paint, and vintage feel it has.

A wire-gathering basket was the perfect touch to my chair in front of my She-shed. The tulips play off the pink tone of the chair and look so graceful, spilling out of the basket.

On my blog, I may sometimes use affiliate links, which means a small commission is earned if you purchase via the link. The price will be the same whether you use the affiliate link or go directly to the vendor’s website using a non-affiliate link.

While walking the bustling flower market to prepare to style my vignette, I was mesmerized by the sweet scent of the fresh blooms and seeing all the vibrant colors of the flowers. It always inspires me. And this time of year, it’s downright enchanting.

My love for flowers knows no bounds, and every visit to the flower market brings new adventures and discoveries. It’s a world filled with endless possibilities and breathtaking beauty. So, I decided to share that beauty with you today with twenty-one of my favorite flowers for this season from the flower market.

Whether hosting Easter or visiting family and friends, you will want to gather some spring flowers.

What is the Symbolic Meaning of the White Easter Lily?

The first flower that comes to my mind is always the white Easter lily. This pure white flower with its trumpet-shape blooms is calling out to Heaven to celebrate the resurrection. These flowers have been linked with purity and rebirth from the beginning of time. The credit goes to a story from the bible, where a miracle occurs in the Garden of Gethsemane. The night before the crucifixion, Jesus prayed fervently, and after surviving the wrath of humanity and death, these divine flowers emerged from the earth, offering eternal hope and redemption.
