Decorating a home, and especially a table top does not have to be expensive. Sometimes it's the "little things" that can make all of the difference - - and when I say, "little things," I mean little - - things. Little things such as old silver baby spoons for the marmalade or mustard jars, little dishes for individual salt cellars, and multiple little vases for a variety of garden flowers. Just a variety of "little things!"
|I do not care about polishing the silver. I like a bit of the old patina.|
How to use these items are endless, whether it is on a table top or around the house, and they bring so much character and individual personality to a home. That sad and lonely pretty china saucer that is now missing it's cup, can hold a votive candle. A little chocolate truffle or two on tiny little mismatched plates or silver coasters can personalize each table setting. And no - - we don't want everything to match on our table top, and who said that we cannot blend silver with gold? Show me the rule book. Whimsy can also be elegant.
|3-4" plates are perfect votive candle holders or candy plates|
|Little posies need little vases. Shot glasses are perfect.|
Bring out the "littles!"
