Silver for the holidays!

With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner I've been thinking about the things I need to take care of-one being my silver. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas I use my husbands grandmother's silverware. Time to polish that. I was also thinking about decorating with some silver pieces I have collected over the year. Off to the internet I went for some ideas and here are so lovely pieces of silver I thought I would share with you today:

I just love the little silver teapot place card holders! I'm a tea drinker but I think everyone would love these.

Wouldn't this silver grouping look beautiful on a sideboard in your Dining Room!

Lovely silverware.

Don't forget to add silver, glass or white mirrors to your holiday decorating! They are really gorgeous for this time of year.

I just love this little tea cup with the little silver forks.

Don't just store your silverware in a drawer out of site, bring it out into the open by storing some pieces in a pottery urn.

Or in a cut glass cup

Silver that shows a little age or tarnish is wonderful to use in decorating for the holidays.

I have always tried to put a glass candle holder with some silver pieces on the mantel to add just enough sparkle for the holiday season!

I love this Dining Room setting! Very simple but yet elegant! The silver candlelabras add just enough sparkle for your holiday meal!

This silver branch candlelabra really makes a statement! I would add some greenery and some berries for the Christmas holiday.

Napkins rings are always a just little extra item you can add to your holiday table. These silver ones are very elegant and old-world looking.

Don't forget to add some beautiful silver mecury glass ornaments to your tree or put some greenery in a bowl, place some silver ornaments and some red berries on twigs and you've got a beautiful arrangement.

Last and not least don't forget to bling yourself out!!

Oooh I think I like that last ring picture the best. I could always use a little "blinging out" haha. Silver is so classy! Thanks for being such a frequent visitor at my blog, I really love reading your comments. I was hoping you could confirm for me that you received a personal email from Reckless Bliss with the same message shown on my blog today? It's so important to me that my followers aren't put in a bad situation as a result of my blog even if it's out of my control so I was hoping you could verify it was sent successfully. If you could respond via email ( or comment on my blog I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks so much Sherri!

PS. That's my mom's name too ;)

All so pretty! You know I don't own any silver? CRazy!

What are you doing next Sunday? I thought about maybe going to the Southern Christmas Show.

Lovely inspirational Photos, Sherrie! I love all of the silverware and the way that they're displayed! I like to add a little bit of silver to my Christmas decorating, too. Thanks for sharing these great ideas with us!
Have a great week!

I must say, those cute little silver teapot place card holders are just the cutest things. However, in Hawaii they'd tarnish in a half hour. Sigh.

LOL...girl you and I are definitely connected because I decided to decorate with silver mercury glass this year :) A few years ago I decorate with gold and silver so I am recycling that theme this year. :)

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
