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!
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!!
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!
