Silver For Christmas ~

I love using silver to decorate for the holidays, it gives flare, adds to the glimmer and the shine...and  gives me a chance to take it out of the cupboards and use it. Last year I made this vignette in the china cabinet ~ all of my Santa's are there this year.
 

But across the room by the sink I have the perfect place. I really wanted to hang this silver tray and I wandered all over trying to find a spot, but it it just too big so instead I put it on a stand... 


...on one side of the ledge under the window above my sink.

 
 I added some fruit...

 
...greenery, sparkles, and candles. 

 
 Voila! Something festive and pretty to look at while I wash the dishes!



 
 Thank you for visiting.
 
 
Merry Christmas

  1. Your silver is beautiful! I've begun to pull out some of my silver to use in my decorating but I haven't done my dining room yet. I'm not sure what will 'win out' in there - silver or vintage glassware. Time will tell. Thank you for your inspiration!

  12. What a delightful idea! I'll have to add a "to do" to my list to keep my eyes open at Goodwill in case a set like this appears. It does make a lovely Christmas addition to your decor. Thank you for this fun idea for Pink Saturday.
