Yup, that’s right. I’m using this bamboo 3-tier serving tea tray like a champ. This sucker helped free my pretty bottles of nail polish from their prisons of separate boxes, totes and packages. The display aspect is the best but I also like the easy access of choosing from all my colors without having to rummage around forever in a cramped box. The 3-size system also correspond perfectly to the small, medium, full size categorization of my bottles. I figure nail salons do this, why not at home too? Go for a boastful nail polish display too if you have the closet space or flat surface real restate for it!
I recently bought an all-out extravagant bouquet for my mom when she was visiting my new house because I knew it would delight her and also add that cheery vibe to a new house. Not that I didn’t know this from before but FLOWERS ARE EXPENSIVE. Oh my jibbers, they are such a perfect business if you ever just want to throw money at something frivolous. I’m not your average roses and flowers type of girl, (I would much rather enjoy gifts of makeup or food) so paying $110 for 25-something stems of live decor is over the top ridiculous to me. However, fresh flowers already have that reputation so all I can do is contribute to this industry. Anyways…the value aside, the presentation was beautiful. Plus, there were so many stems in the one vase that I had enough to pull some out to make a nice little dining room table centerpiece. I cut down the long stems, pruned some of the leaves, took a few filler stems and arranged them as such. The two small side vases have silk gerber daises (I am all about fake flowers that last!) and remnants of my Diamond Candle wax pieces. The leftover wax chunks that I could have thrown out are now everlasting scent blocks for a surprisingly strong fragrance! People leaning over to smell the real flowers will actually get a whiff of the scented soy wax and be impressed that they smell like apricot fig. It’s my little secret ;).
