Piece(s) of the Week | Coffee + Tea

I find that more and more brides are looking for a unique or pretty way to display their desserts.. BUT since I don't typically have pretty desserts at my beckon call I decided to go for a different approach (the "use what I have approach") and display what you use to eat the sweets with. 

I started with our drawer-less desk, added the hutch and filled it with stacks of tea cups and saucers and the dessert plates. *the hutch can hold about 40 tea cups & saucers. You can always add an additional small table to display more. I actually walked away at this point and considered my project finished but then an hour later I came back and started adding. I began with the coffee tin and heart "muffin" tin at the bottom, this is where I decided it would all revolve around baking and drinking coffee + tea.  Hence the stacks of tea bags and vessel full of baking tools. I was inspired and found coffee filters. Without a plan I started to make coffee filter flowers and dye them with coffee. I added them to the distressed door, several different times, and no matter what I was going to use these filters. As if I had a plan I pulled out some of our frames, added menus and voila!

Piece(s) of the Week

Well, it's been awhile! (I think I say that every time I blog) Jason & I have been pondering this idea for awhile now & since it's coming close to "the end"of the season I decided to just go for it and introduce our {Piece(s) of the Week} post. We love our inventory and I know you do too, so we'd like to show you how to use some pieces, give you some ideas and hopefully inspire you! I'm not going to lie, this is also a really good excuse for me to play once a week and get some creativity out.. it's kind of hard to be creative while carrying 100 lb. tables around. 

I love Fall but unfortunately I feel like I miss out on it every year. This week I took a little bit of Fall and a little bit of Halloween and got inspired! Enjoy!
