Carrots, Crate & Flowers

My mom visited me a few weeks ago, whenever she comes to visit I always try to take her to a little beach town called Carpinteria. It is the cutest little town with little antique shops, boutiques and a restaurant my mom loves called The Worker Bee


One of my favorite photos of this centerpiece. 
After a delicious breakfast, we always try to walk around to all the shops. It seems like we always find something cute to take home with us. This time, I bought a vintage metal milk crate that was to adorable to pass up. 
I also displayed my vintage Easter Gurley candles. 
It was a great way to display flowers and an even better inspiration for a Spring and/or Easter centerpiece. 
I found that the best way to get the carrots to sit just right was to arrange the flowers in each jar first, then slide the carrots into each jar afterwards. Some of the carrots were rather large, cut them in half to make them fit just right. 

Vintage embroidered table cloth I had picked up awhile back.


 I hope you enjoyed this small floral tutorial. If you have any questions, please let me know. 
Happy Spring!
