6 ways to style flowers in vintage tins

Do you collect vintage coffee or tea tins? They're just so cute, and I love the way they can add a pop of color to any table setting.

Today, I’ve gathered a few fun looks for using some of my favorite vintage tins and cans at the table, and I 'm sharing them with you now... 

Above you can see a collection of coffee cans in different sizes that are united by the same color palette of red, white and yellow. Roses and pretty chamomile flowers complement the colors of the coffee tins.


Tea tins are another favorite way to coordinate a cohesive look. These red and white tins have a nice square shape and sets the tone for this table. 

The vintage Twinings tins are my favorites, and they come in all sorts of colors, flavors and sizes.

Isn't this is a fun look for a tea party or book club?  


A battered but loved Uneeda Cookie tin has a few dents, but I adore the soft blue colors and graphics on it. Soft pink roses are a fun choice to balance the muted tones.


The artwork on this Amaretti tin really spoke to me. Maybe it’s the texture and colors that I love so much, and it’s nice contrast to the woven look of the basket of geraniums.


I filled it with a small bunch of sweet blue forget-me-nots from the garden, and they help to unite the subtle tones of the tin with the tablecloth.

Yellow daffodils and nasturtium brighten up these two blue vintage cans. Don’t you love the graphic nature of this look? The lettering on the tins has such a nostalgic look.


A vintage Cracker Jack tin infuses just the right amount of summer fun to the summer clam bake table I set last week. Simple white hydrangeas do the trick to fill this oldie but goodie.


The subtle red, white and blue colors of the Cracker Jack logo strengthen the theme of the patriotic tablecloth and napkins.


Here are just a few of the dozens and dozens of  fun tea tins I've collected over the years. They're perfect to use for flowers and add just the right amount of whimsy to any table.

Keep a look out for these little wonders. You never know where you might spot a cute one. Even the grocery store or specialty market have ones that are fun to collect.
