I’m so ecstatic about today’s Get The Global Look topic. GINGER JARS! If you have been with me for a while, you know that chinoiserie ginger jars are one of my favorite decorating accessories. Whether as art work, wallpaper, or even as lamps ginger jars continue to be a popular cross cultural global accent. Although ginger jars originated as storage containers, these beautiful home accents have become more than just storage solutions.

Here are 4 reasons you should be investing in ginger jars!
Ginger Jars Match Any Color
Ginger jars, specifically the classic blue and white jars, are like blue jeans…they coordinate with any color under the sun! Ginger jars complement any floral arrangement whether you pair with red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple flowers. When using ginger jars for floral arrangements, simply insert a smaller vase into your jar to house your arrangement. This protects the ceramic from water damage and makes changing the water so much easier. If you don’t believe that ginger jars coordinate with any color, take a look at this rainbow of arrangements!

Ginger Jars Spruce Up Table Decor
Ginger jars make excellent tablescape decor. Adding one or two jars to a centerpiece takes your tablescape to the next level. Use a ginger jar for tablescape floral arrangements or simply group them with other blue and white ceramics for a vignette. Just like that great pair of jeans, these ginger jar beauties can be used for relaxed, casual decor or for super elegant affairs.
