Hi there! I thought I'd show y'all how I changed up my wicker basket on the entry table. The last time you saw it, it probably looked like THIS
After all the holidays, I knew I'd want to fill it with some hydrangeas for my everyday decor.
BTW, these pics were all taken before we painted. Everything is so much lighter now and I can't wait to show you the big paint reveal. :)
I went to Michael's to price the hydrangeas and they were around $6.99 each. I knew if I waited, they'd go on sale. Just one week later, they were on sale 40% off! I hurried down there and picked up lots of them.
I just snipped off the stems and arranged them in the basket. Easy peasy.
I really like the neutral colors.
You can see below how I took some things off my dining room buffet too. I like the clean, uncluttered look now. I actually have a question for y'all...is this called a "buffet" or a "sideboard" or is either name fine? I never know what to call this. When we bought it at the antique store, the tag said "buffet" but I've always heard them referred to as a "sideboard." Let me know your thoughts on this, please. :)
Almost every time I show a pic of my floors, I get an email asking what I clean them with. This is what I use. You can get Bona products at almost every grocery store and also on Amazon. When we had our hardwoods installed, they gave us some of this and told us to "never, ever clean them with anything else" so this is the only thing we use.
I also thought I'd show y'all what's inside my buffet (sideboard) drawers. In this drawer, I keep napkin rings, candle holders, tablecloths, napkins, and some ribbon for my napkin rings. You can see HERE how I use the ribbon on the napkin rings for different holidays, etc.
In this drawer I keep my green napkins. I have lots and lots of them. :)
In this drawer I keep some bowls, holiday napkins, table runners, and serving platters.
Also in that drawer, there are some instructions for cleaning my tablecloths, etc. I like to keep some of the tags from the items I buy so I'll remember how to clean them, or what sizes they come in, etc.
In this bottom drawer, there are more platters, trays, a set of dollar tree plates, and our "cookies for Santa" plate and cup that were purchased from the J.C. Penney catalog about 20 years ago. :)
Where do y'all store all your serving pieces?
I'll be back Friday with an amazing Tomato Basil Soup recipe. It's so, so easy and very delicious!
