A few weeks ago when I took out all of my silver serving dishes to get them really for holiday entertaining I thought...you know it's really too bad, these are so pretty they deserve to be on display a little more. and not always just stored away.
So I decided to use them to add some festive glitter and glam to the kitchen.
I made the first vignette in a cabinet near the eating area and like it so well...
...that I put another grouping across the kitchen on the ledge above my sink.
I used fruit, artichokes and some holiday greenery that I already had and for additional effect threw in the silver candelabras. Some battery votive and pillar candles make it all sparkle at night
I think it adds a festive feel and it is lots of fun to be able to see all of these pretty and useful items. In fact I like it so much that I might do it again next year!
My kitchen faucet is really not supposed to be decorative and certainly isn't silver but I love it's commercial look and it seems to fit right in.
(For those of you who are interested, I used one of Picnik's holiday textures with these pictures.)
