Although it may feel like spring is still far away (there’s snow outside, after all) you can always bring a little bit of the season into your home, even if the outside weather doesn’t reflect it yet. There are gorgeous floral serving dishes, dinnerware sets, wine glasses—even salt and pepper shakers with bright flowery patterns that will get your table ready for sunnier days. Switch out your holly greens and winter blues for pastel pinks and pale yellows, and start planning your garden parties now. See below for some of our favorite vintage floral designs and new takes on flowery glassware and serving bowls.
