Vases as Kitchen Utensil Holders

What do you think of using a vase as a kitchen utensil holder? I’ve seen it a bit around the web, and my sister and I were discussing it last week.

I like the idea of it, but I think the secret is having aesthetically pleasing utensils to put into the vase. If you have a mish-mash of items, I think they are better left hidden in a drawer. If however, you have spatulas and spoons made of wood or other matching materials, it might work to display them in a vase. I’m not sold, though.

Our Easter Dinner Menu

 We are hosting Easter dinner for Dylan’s parents and brothers this year. I’m looking forward to a chill night with good company, yummy food, and wonderful wine.

Easter Tabletop Inspiration—3 ways

1. Neon Vibes | 2. Neutral Vibes | 3. Playful Vibes

Will you be hosting an Easter gathering this year? We’ll be hosting Easter dinner with Dylan’s family. I’m still finalizing the menu and my ideas for the centerpiece. To get into the spirit, I’ve been looking at some inspiration, and I came across these 3 tabletops. The neon tabletop has some punchy color, which is a nice contrast to the typical pastel Easter table. The neutral tabletop is very refined and would be perfect for a brunch. The playful tabletop is my favorite, though, because of the muted color scheme. It has a lot of personality and yet isn’t over the top.

Which one is your favorite?
