I was never satisfied with that cord! Why do they make cords black?! It would be so much easier if they were all white. Anyway, I took one of her small platters and disguised the cord. If you want to know how I tied my cord that way then go here.
Much better I think. I love plates and I love silver so that definitely works for me! Below, I took one of her more decorative platters and used it as a tray for a Christmas display.
Although I think it is a shame to not use your silver, when I am not using it I will store it in my china cabinet. The platter on the middle shelf was given to me at one of my bridal showers but the platters on the bottom are all my moms. I think it is neat that we have one that is almost exactly the same!
Even though I polished these pieces, I do love a little tarnish on the silver when I am using them in displays. It makes it look a little more antique. But every now and then I will polish it so it stays beautiful. Do you have any creative ways to use your silver around the house? I would love any suggestions because I think it is just too pretty to not use.
*I also wanted to clarify some things from my last post. Thanks for all the birthday wishes but my birthday was actually in the summer. :) She had forgotten to give it to me last time we saw eachother. :)
*Also, the Secret Santa Soiree was hosted by Georgie and was so much fun! You will have to join in next year. She also posted a list of who had who so now I know that Sidz6Kidz had me! She didn't post the blog addresses so if you see this Sid, then comment so I can come to your blog again! :) Thank you so much!!
