Lily of the Valley Green Ball Jar Centerpiece

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

We had a huge pine tree in the back of our house when I was a little girl, and I remember being fascinated by the little white bells that seemed to be floating amongst the shaded pointy green grass under it. Lily of the Valley quickly became my favorite flower, and has always reminded me of my early days in the 1970s. My very simple “Lily of the Valley Green Ball Jar Centerpiece” plays tribute to such a gorgeous, unique perennial.

When I took a rare stroll outside a couple days ago (it’s been quite chilly), I couldn’t believe I almost missed our Lily of the Valley 2021 show 😖. I usually keep a close eye on every “episode” and I bet if you looked through my cell phone pics you would see several stages of our Lily of the Valley patch every May. I’m lucky enough to have these pretty cuties in our front landscaping, and if I missed it all it would just be so strange. Luckily…Lily was calling me.

Before I show you the head to toe Lily of the Valley Centerpiece in it’s entirety, take a look overhead and try to imagine that beautiful fresh spring floral scent. You have sniffed Lily of the Valley before, right? If not…order perfume quick. Here’s my favorite roll on from Amazon: Lily of the Valley Perfume.

Okay here, we go into the “Valley”…I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I did the last couple days (note: Lily of the Valley only lasts a couple days once cut, and it is toxic for pets, so be very careful where you display it.)

I was so delighted when I witnessed the magical sun light up Lily in a sea of green on our deck. To be honest, I was worried the green jars would add too much green, and feel more like March and St. Patrick’s Day. I was pleasantly surprised with a glowing Lily of the Valley Green Ball Jar Centerpiece that looked like it was one big glass green bowl on top of my jadeite green milk glass cake plate stand 🤭. To think it was all things I had on hand.

Speaking of which, Are you curious about those green jars? Here’s the scoop on those: GREEN JARS.

I know green jars are rare these days, so I have an idea if you are okay with getting a little risky? 👉🏻 Any clear jars would most definitely work (got empty pickles?), but I bet if you add 1 little drop of green food coloring to the water in the jars before you add the flowers it will make the jars look green 😊. I’ve actually seen this done with blue, so why not?

Then add the jars to a pretty plate resting on something like this one I made DIY style, or a cake plate like I used.

    Gorgeous color and I wish I could smell it! That’s such a great tip about the food coloring Julie!

  8. Your Lily of the Valley looks gorgeous in the green Mason jars on your green cake stand. I have Lily of the Valley in one of my perennial beds and it is such a pleasure when it blooms each spring.

    Hi Julie:
    The Lily-of-the-Valley takes me back to my childhood. My Mum always had a little vase of it in our home, I can still remember the scent, almost like a Gardenia. Thanks for the memory of my Mum and the plant.
    Cheers, Bette

  16. So pretty Julie! I love Lily Of The Valley flowers but I don’t see them in our area – I’ll have to see if I can get a hold of some and if they’ll grow here! And I love the green Mason jars and how you arranged them on the stand. Simple gorgeous perfection! Thanks so much for hosting this super fun hop!

  17. Oh, I love the green jars!! My lily of the valley are getting ready to flower, they are such sweet little flowers! What a fun hop this month, so many cool projects.

  18. Mine will be opening this week! I’ve got them right by the back door, so the scent will waft every time we walk by. Can’t wait to pick some! Bonus…we drink out of those green glasses everyday. Great idea! Love the jadeite cake plate:)

  19. Mary Beth says:

    What a beautiful idea, Julie! I love Lily of the Valley, too, and when I was a pre-teen I had a little perfume vial in a wooden container with Lily of the Valley painted on it…I think I still have it somewhere. I also used to have a large patch in my front flower bed but it started to choke out everything so I had to tame it a bit but the aroma was heavenly. Thank you for the lovely display idea.

  20. Kristi says:

    I just love how you grouped all of these together, friend. It makes for a STUNNING piece. You’re always so clever…love it. xoxo, Kristi
