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!

The mint juleps see double duty, they make the pretties holders when creating a tray of appetizers, perfect for nuts, dips, chips and more

Another large planter which I have used as a wine cooler

Love my stag wine holder and cooler, the larger hammered bucket is also offered in a larger size which is a perfect ice bucket, these both make great hostess gifts as well

These mint juleps offered in three sizes are incredibly versatile and work for so many things. I also took the wine cooler in center and used it as an elegant planter for a spray of white roses….see, super versatile!

Whats prettier than water or any type of drink being served in a fabulous silver pitcher, we have three beautiful styles. The one above I bring out every holiday

The silver planter I bought for my daughter a few years ago was suppose to be no tarnish but it is not it is terribly tarnished?

Trish Hertsgaard on

My favorites are the silver planters, because of their versatility, and the mini table lamps. These create such an intimate glow for the table and I love that.

jill on

I’ve asked Santa for the large domed platter but not sure I’ve been good enough this year. Usually Santa is good to me so maybe it’s under the tree?

Mary Alice Taylor on

My fav’s are etched Mint Julep and large planter so versatile! The serving pieces come in 3rd and would b an addition to myVictorian pieces I hunt high n low for while antiquing. Inspired

Sandy w on

I love the chargers and the mini lamps. But it’s all beautiful

I have always loved wreaths for any holiday, but especially Christmas. So my favorite piece of silver is your mint julep cups with the wreaths! “Hands down” my favorite! Thank you for your wonderful designs and a Merry Christmas!

Eileen on

I bought the beaded table top lamp and am thinking about more. They are so sweet and versatile.

Bev on

Love the “punch bowl” and planters as wine coolers

Millie Drehmel on

Nothing says Holidays like freshly polished silver ( old and new!) mixed with fresh flowers and greens of all types. Your chargers and beverage tubs grace not only my table, but mantle as well. Really NEED some julip cups with the wreaths to add another layer!

Love the covered platter.

Love the domed silver, stag horn wine cooler, and mint julep cups!! All fabulous!!

Linda on

The mini lamps are so pretty! And I love the chargers too.

Linda Primeaux on

How can I comment on just one or two silver favorites? Your selection of all of these silver pieces are absolutely gorgeous! I see so much variety in the pieces from the mint julep cups, like the Kentucky Derby (Run for the Roses) to elegant (Downton Abby) formality. My choices are:
1) Silver Square Charger; a must for formal Downton Abby table settings. As all the other ornate chargers.
2) Beaded Tabletop Lamps, like so chic uptown dinner clubs from the 40’s and 50’s years ago. I can see Betty Davis from across the room. Love it!

Christy on

What is the name of the china pattern you show in the first photos with the chargers? Love it!!

Pam Kelley on

So excited to have just ordered 4 of your beautiful chargers… I have 12 silver chargers originally purchased from Ralph Lauren home… Your bamboo styled chargers will go perfectly with my others. As for which piece of your collection is my favorite….. Hard choice, however one can never have too many trays 🙂 Cheers!

Cindy on

I do love all your silver & own a bit. One of my current favorites is the STAG WINE HOLDER. I use one for wine & my other for a soap dish. I put a rubber soap strainer in it and use it by my bathtub.

Without a doubt the giveaway planter is my favorite – just gorgeous. My second and about to be purchased are two of the table lamps which I will use on my kitchen island – surrounded by a buffet of snacks for our new house move in opening party – If I ever move in!! Seems like it’s never going to happen. I’m sure any of you that have built your dream home from scratch would say the same! I just wish it had happened before Christmas..

M C Galloway-Davis on

It was difficult to choose favorites. I particularly like the large scale tray and the table lamps. Very nice assortment of pieces.

I just love your post this morning on adding silver to the table – I’ve shared with a few friends.

All the pieces are lovely, but I especially admire the stag deer wine coaster. I think I might need two !!
Have a great day.

Sherri Mccormick on

The table lamps are so elegant.

cheryl p on

I love how you have shown your readers different ways the mint julep cups can be used! I could use the large size! And I must tell you I ordered one of your new mini silver lamps, and it is just so beautiful and well made. Thank you for adding it to your silver pieces. Happy Holidays!

Vicki C. on

My favorite item is the large punch bowl.

Kimberly A on

Your silver mixes beautifully with our heirloom sterling. There is an elegance and beauty in silver that complements crisp linen and fine china. I would use the large bowl for lots of festive bubbly!

Christine on

My favorite item of silver in your shop is the large candelabra. It instantly elevates every table setting whether it be an intimate dinner in the dining room, or an alfresco meal on the patio.

Suzanne on

Love your scalloped table top lamps. So beautiful and elegant, and could be used so many different ways.

Kathy on

Tina, I am so thankful you have “curated” and developed this wonderful line! I love silver, have collected it for years, and am having a most difficult time finding any new silver out there. It seems to require hunts through antique stores and occasional yard sales to ever snag a piece. Of your line, there is absolutely nothing less than beautiful. But I am loving the domed covered serving platter, all the chargers (the squares are unique show stoppers), and the lovely pierced chippendale tray. Well done! You make this girl very happy. And the photographs you have posted- well, just WOW!

Vickie on

The Vicky Archer flatware and the equestrian horseshoe min juleps are two faves.

Cathi R on

Tina, first, your pictures, above, are just fabulous! Your silver is just stunning and I’m so thankful you have created this beautiful collection. I have given several pieces as wedding gifts ~ and I own your beautiful etched serving pitcher. I love ALL your chargers and was so sad to see that the etched ones are all sold out; I likely would have begun my charger collection! I also love the domed covered serving platter. Actually, I love it all!

Caroline on

#1 love the large flared silver planter #2 the small etched pierced sliver planter, All beautiful!

I love the table lamp. I think it would be so beautiful on the dining room table, or on a vanity in the bathroom.

Oh how I covet the covered platter!

Rachael W on

I love the wine bucket planter with etch work….gorgeous!!

I love the octagonal bamboo chargers. Would go great with my pagoda silverware I got from you. Love my place settings of that too.

Hildred Sullivan on

The Elegant Silver Beverage Tub is my absolut favorite! I had stopped using my silver serving pieces the last few years except for my but you are inspiring me to take it out again! Have a wonderful holiday season!

Joan on

I keep coming back to the Silver Bamboo Mini Table Lamp w/ Beaded Shade. Besides gracing the dining table, think one would look perfect on the vanity in my main bath, holding a battery-operated votive (just to be on the safe side) during the holidays!

Catherine Shell on

I love the pierced bowls but also the large containers that can be planters or serving pieces such as the punch bowl.

Deri Terry on

Thank you,
Deri

I have the silver lamps for each seat at my dining room table, and I love, love, love them. I also love the small and medium mint juleps. Perfect for snacks at a party. Thank you for the giveaway!

Valerie on

It’s difficult to choose. I love your etched planters as the square chargers.
The real question should be is there a least favorite ?

Kathy M on

Absolutely love the round chargers and mint julep cups. But it all is lovely, and your table is beautiful

Lynne on

Tina,
My favorite silver piece is the etched silver planter with lions rings. Just stunning….

Charna Wiese on

It’s so hard to choose!!!
I have to say I LOVE the incredible three tiered server. I can envision it with bon bons mixes with mini ornaments for Christmas dinner, tiny pastries for Easter.. and lovely lemons in the middle of summer!!! I wouldn’t mind completing the table with the tea light lamps at every other place as well!!
Beautiful !!!

I love the look of silver beverage coolers. The table lamps are also a favorite!

A girl can never have too many trays and your selection is superb ! So many shapes and sizes to be used in many ways other than serving . I’ve been on the search for a 3 tiered silver tray and I found it here ! The footed silver bowls and planters have beautiful details . Impossible to choose a favorite. After Christmas , I will be treating myself to an item or two !

Kim W-S on

I love all of it, but the water pitcher is something that jumped off the page to me. There’s nothing more beautiful, and I don’t mind to polish it either. It just comes to life in front of you.

The fabulous square chargers would be perfect with my pagoda flat wear!

Regina on

Large punch bowl

Linda Clark on

I love them all but the little table lamps are precious!

Tina Woodward on

Lezlie on

It’s too hard to pick two favorites! Love all of the planters/beverage coolers. Also love the chargers, especially the round pierced chargers- simple but elegant. I’ve got to add a third- the serving pieces. You always need extra at the holidays.

Sandi Lee on

It’s difficult to pick a favorite as it’s all so gorgeous. The domed platter and the planters are things I would love to have in my collection. I also love the pagoda flatware. Everything is beautiful.

Anne Marie O'Connor on

Beautiful! Silver definitely sets the tone in any home. Silver definitely sparks and adds richness to a room, table setting, serving trays, serving pieces, candles sticks etc. Bring it on, Up the amp with silver!

Maura White on

To pick a favorite is tough, they are all stunning. If pressed I would have to say the ornate round charger would be a beautiful addition to any table. The embossed julep cups with the bows are lovely as well.

JoAnne on

I have been looking for a large silver plate punch bowl and herring it is. Hope it is in stock as I am offering today.

Patti on

Audrey Anders on

The punch bowl is indeed magnificent and I was so surprised at the price. Many people believe that silver is both out of their price range and not as versatile. Your pieces show this is not true at all.

Amanda Groce on

I love the incredible planter/beverage tub. Its a great multi use piece. I also love the 3 tier server. Always a favorite on a hostess’ table! Beautiful pieces.

sandy on

Do you sell the scalloped pleated shade (pictured on the fall table with pinecones and white tulips) for your mini table lamps?

Holly on

Oh my goodness, your tablescapes are stunning!!! I always love your table lamps, and I also really love the covered platter and the fluted pitcher!

Peggy Wilkins on

What’s not to love about that huge candelabra? I could see it adding an elegant touch as it casts a glow throughout any room. Visioning a girl secretly wandering the halls of an old stone castle while holding it to light her way! I also adore the mint julep cups, all are unique and beautiful. Living in the south, mint julep cups are a must (along with bourbon and coke)!

Susana Lucena on

I love all silver, they are beautiful.
Merry Christmas!

Jackie Wolfe on

Love, love the scalloped footed planter and the mid-size planter. Beautiful selection of silver!

Phoebe S. on

I literally love every single piece but the huge beverage bowl, small lamps and chargers are my favorite. I already own the bamboo chargers and adore them.

Also got my gift wrap and ornaments last night!!! Was so excited it is all even prettier in person. Thank you for bringing these beautiful products into our lives:-) Merry merry!

Ann on

Those candelabras are incredible. I could see a pair on my dining table, maybe Santa will be good to me haha.
