My Quirky Silverware Bouquet

Hello everyone!

One day, after moving some things around the house and "robbing" one room to fill another, I was left with an empty galvanized container.  I still wanted to use it though.  It once had a plant in it, and rather than finding another one to fill it, I decided to do something a little crazy.

I filled it with dry beans and stuck some silverware in it.  It now looks like a silverware bouquet.  These were silver plated serving pieces that were stored in the dining room. 

Crazy right?  I thought it would fit in nicely with all of my other dishes on display.


 

So simple. I used what I already had on hand and I like the added texture that the beans give it.



So, that is why I call it my quirky silverware bouquet.  I wonder if this will start a trend.  Hmmm.........

Have you ever done anything crazy like this before?

Thanks for stopping by!

That's a cute idea!
I had to laugh at your comment on our thoughts on moving from Pondside! I am still working full time, so it's definitely not old age, but time - or lack of it! Since my husband's illness there is just too much for me to manage while I work.

I think it's a cute idea, Kelly! Now, your family may look at you funny, but you can just explain that it's the new current trend. : )

Cute idea! I think it is a cute little piece of whimsical fun.

Did I ever do anything crazy like this before? Does marrying MyHero after dating for 30 days count as crazy? xo Diana

SHERRY HART said...

Oh I am sure I have had some crazy ideas in my time...but I don't think this one applies....I so love those white beans and have used them to fill up jars before.

Kim @ La Belle Époque said...

This is a wonderful crazy idea! Would be neat to use on a casual buffet for the silverware!

I have a couple of utensil bouquets to show off some colorful utensils.

I like the tin with the number. I am into numbers so I think I will take a tin tomorrow and number it.

thanks for the inspiration.
