Hello, I had fun the other day taking a little time off to do what I love most, play around the house, do a little holiday decorating and “table dress up”. I am deciding how I will do my Christmas table this year. It is always fun to change things up a bit. There is nothing quite like the magnificent gleam of silver during the holidays. Don’t you agree? And to prove my point, I have put together a post showing all the beautiful ways that silver can be used to add some holiday sparkle to your home. We just got in a huge replenishment of our silver to have great stock for holiday entertaining, including the chargers, planters, serving pieces, mini table lamps and candelabras! One of my proudest accomplishments was bringing my carefully curated silver collection to life. When I couldn’t’ find pieces I loved (that were new) I started creating my own little line of silver which has grown considerably. Apparently many of you out there also want to see high quality, affordable old world looking silver too! Offering a fun gift with purchase- for every $100 spent on silver you get a gorgeous mint julep, you get one for every $100 spent! This will end Sunday evening. Click here to see the entire silver collection. I am also offering a fun silver giveaway, all details at bottom of this post. So what do you think about silver? Love it? If you are not sure, this post just might hopefully change your mind. To me, few things are as elegant and beautiful as silver but add it to the magic of the holiday season and the effect is pure “wow”! So let me demonstrate and show you all the ways I love to use silver during the holidays, well actually year round:) ______________________________________________________ Nothing like the sparkle of silver on a table, everything here is from my shop except the china (which is from www.sashanicholas.com) My beloved chargers were created because I loved the look of silver charges but had a very hard time finding them. I finally found a set of 12 but they were antique and extremer expensive. Plus 2 weren’t in great condition so began the idea. It took months to have it materialize but was it every worth the wait! Shown here are my square scalloped chargers, we just got them in again but they are going fast! And love my round pierced chargers, aren’t these wonderful! So elegant, very similar to the antique pair I had found but in perfect condition:) The incredible covered platter looks like a valuable family heirloom, this is one piece that really can elevate a table to new heights, it is spectacular! Love using my planters as the most elegant utensil holders, especially gorgeous on a buffet table! Ad my fabulous serving pieces are spectacular looking and so reasonable! One of my biggest successes has been my silver mini table lamps, they use a votive and are simply exquisite. Now offered in three classic styles, if you are looking for something to have everyone oohing and ahhing, this is your piece! Our large beverage wine cooler is incredible!! I have used it so many ways, as a punch bowl, to serve wine/champagne at parties and even a huge shrimp cocktail. It is a beauty! Our large beverage wine cooler is incredible!!
