Daffodils Chase The Winter Blues Away With The Sweetest Faces Of Spring

| |

UPDATE:  Enjoy this spring project for the kitchen our former home.  We’ve moved and are giving our new-to-us home a complete remodel.  I’ve completely changed my style!  Click HERE to take a look.

Easy and cheery 5 minute Spring vignette on a kitchen island with daffodils and other natural elements.

My heart is yearning and reaching for Spring!

The dreary, drab days of winter always seem to drag on forever to me.  By February 1st, I am counting the days until warm sunny weather is here to stay.

So when I spotted the sweet faces of these bright yellow daffodils at the grocery store the other day, I knew they had to come home with me.  They reminded me that they are one of the first harbingers of Spring. These flowers make me feel like warm weather is just around the corner.

Their cheery yellow blooms are enough to chase the worst of the winter blues away!

My vignette is filled with bright white elements…

There is a white cake stand with floral plates on it.

… and some colorful floral plates.

The colorful plates in yellow, green and red.

Adding in textural elements of burlap, moss and straw orbs, a bit of twine and green Spanish moss plays off of the hard edges of the dishes and vases to create loads of visual interest.

White cups and a white container for salad dressing is beside the daffodils.

I’ve had several people ask me how I go about putting together a spring vignette for my kitchen island.

One day soon, I’ll share my thought process with you.

In the meantime, this cheery vignette is making me happy every time I enter my kitchen!

  1. Oh! I might not have real daffodils but I’m headed to Hobby Lobby to get some! These would be perfect to brighten up our winter blues. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    1. Thank you, Ashley. I hope you have a happy day!

  2. So pretty. These will definitely chase the winter blues away. I will probably have to pick up artificial as well. My little cat likes to eat the flowers I bring home! Thank you for a wonderful idea to brighten up our house!

  3. Yes! So tired of winter. Ready for flip flops and capris. And spring flowers! Please.

  4. Not only do I love your daffodil vignette, I spotted those Granny Smith apples in a jar on your counter! I’m so ready for spring too so I’m going out into the garden to dig in the dirt today! 🙂

    1. Hi Jane. In case you’re wondering, those apples came from Walmart. Believe it or not they have some very realistic looking fake fruit.

  8. Hi, As always, I love your vignettes! Can’t wait to I get into our new home and have a large island that will be the perfect backdrop. Of course, probably need a few items to arrange too. I love Daffodils and they just scream spring to me; I’m really wanting it to come early this year.
    Thanks for sharing!

  10. Suzy… I am yearning for Spring too! It better get here fast or the Robins will be up to their little yellow knees (or beak) in snow! I am so crazy about the way you displayed your little tete-a-tete daffodils! How beautiful. The whole vignette is a breath of springtime air! I’m heading to bed now with thoughts of daffodils dancing in my head! xo

    Yes, I’m tired of winter too, but we’ve been having springy weather the past few days here in SC, so we’re happy! After two ice storms and an earthquake, we’re enjoying the sunshine! I love those pretty plates you have with those daffodils, they look like they were just made to go together. Take care – Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com
