WHW: Styling with Ginger Jars

Hey y'all and welcome to another What's Hap-Pinning Wednesday with Jenn and little ole me! Today I'm sharing one of my favorite go-to decor pieces: The Ginger Jar. If you're looking for classic, versatile and timeless then you've found the staple decor piece. There's no doubt that by now y'all know I love all things blue and white. (blue and white forever!) and finding an affordable Asian-inspired piece like the ginger jar is my all time favorite score. I always say to myself, "If you can use something in three different spots in your home, its a good piece!" (and worth the price, right?)

They look so good grouped together, standing alone, on book shelves and most definitely as vases. Is there anything prettier than a classic blue ginger jar with pink peonies? Nope. Also gorgeous - daffodils! I love them as a tablescape option or grouped together in a white kitchen. Even on a bedside table it just adds the perfect pop of blue. The possibilities are endless really and I love that they come in so many shapes and sizes. The double happiness jars are my all-time favorite (pictured above bottom row) even though they seem to be the hardest to find. My husband scored a perfect pair of lidded double happiness ginger jars for me last Christmas and I was over the moon! (try Ebay y'all) Since its the traditional Chinese ornament design sign for marriage, I feel like the gift was pretty fitting!

Below I'll link some of my favorites so that y'all can shop as well! I really do feel they have just the right amount of  a 'classic' vibe to go with any decor or design style. The prices vary dramatically most of the time but these that I've linked tend to be under 100 bucks (you can sign up for email lists that will usually send you a discount code as well) Happy shopping!

  7. Blue and white pottery is so classic. I need to figure out a way of integrating it into my (modern) home - my Mum has a ton of Spode and there is a lot lying around out hotel I should commandeer and try and do something pretty with it like you have above! Looking forward to reading more on your site!

  8. I love these, they are so pretty! My friend had her apartment in college all done up in them. I want you to come decorate my house, or even better, by man's house, it needs it!

  9. These are so classic! Such a good southern staple!
