Pretty in Silver

Hello everyone! How was your Easter weekend?

Just a quick post to share a new discovery. I've been picking up little silver vases as I find them at thrift stores. Here's a photo from our Easter brunch yesterday. Don't you love my pretty pink tulips? The smaller vase in the forefront was 79 cents at a local consignment shop.

The silver pitcher is a family piece from my mom, but I've seen ones like them at Goodwill and other such places. Most of the time they just need a little shining up.

Just love the way this silver looks on my table! These little vases are not real silver, but they look pretty and they hold water. Basically all I'm looking for. So keep your eyes peeled when you're out shopping. You'll be glad you did!

Your table is beautiful!
A lot of bloggers show tables without food and they are pretty. Yours looks wonderful and inviting and you did it with food!!
It's a real table setting. I like that.

I just picked up one of those a couple weeks ago too! A little de-tarnishing and VIOLA! Now it sits on my mantle with a pretty little white silk rose in it!

WOW~~ you put my table to shame!! We ate out on the pool deck, so the kids probably would have used my fancy things in the pool as buckets!! Lol

I love tulips and had some on my brunch table too. Someone gave me a great tip on Sunday - add a penny to the vase to keep them from drooping over. It really works! I changed out the water last night and they practically fell over when I did, but after a few hours in new water (penny still in) they perked back up! Strange, but it works!
