I love the idea of using ginger jars as vases.  Take the lid off the jar and add a bunch of flowers for an instant colour pop.  Here are four classic colour combinations of flowers that work with blue and white ginger jars.

Pink Flowers

Pink flowers really add a pop of colour against the blue and white ginger jars.

Using simple white flowers in a ginger jar vase is a statement of classical elegance.  It works best to have some green foliage to contrast the blue and white.

For a cheerful and sunny look try yellow flowers such as daffodils in a blue and white ginger jar.

Purple or blue coloured flowers also work well with blue and white.  Try lilacs or hydrangeas.

So next time you’re at the florist or supermarket, pick up a bunch and use your ginger jar for something more than just a decoration.
