Friday Find {+ CB Looooves Them}: Preppy Ginger Jars

Have you fallen prey to the ginger jar craze yet? I’m falling hard though still have yet to make a first purchase. However, that hasn’t kept me from lusting after them, pinning them and then lusting some more.  Ginger jars exude that stately/regal/old-money vibe which is hard not to like. I happen to think they would make amazing centerpieces at a summer wedding. I’m imagining the Cape or the Hamptons. The palette would be all-white with minimal hints of deep blue. The ginger jars would be overflowing with white arrangements – think tulips, paperwhites, gardenias and hydrangeas. Here’s a little bit of my vision brought to life:

I also think the jars would pack a punch with a bouquet of bright-yellow tulips! Or this fab ginger jar with ombre-hued delphiniums looks rather fabulous:
