Day-to-day, there are some easy home decor details that can make you smile, including breeze-proof taper candles, a cool but inexpensive vase, a charming berry bowl with more uses than just for berries, gorgeous file folders that make a nice gift, and more.
It’s time for Five Faves with Cindy and Annie! I am glad you are here.
It’s nice to be home. If you drop in often, you know that recently I was in Key West on vacation, Atlanta for a Content Creators Convention, and last weekend in Los Angeles for our daughter’s baby shower.
Here are some easy home décor details that are making me happy to be home!
1. Hurricane Taper Candles
Last week, after we had a lovely “Dinner Party With Peaches and Apricots” I found that the breeze from the air conditioner caused the taper candle wax to melt all over the dining table 🙁
So when I saw these great hurricane taper candles in Pottery Barn, I snapped them up! The base has sort of an organic beachy feel. This is a small size. They come in three sizes and in black, too.
The hand-made looking vase/pot is from Threshold for Target on clearance. You may be able to find in it your store.
2. Darling Hand-made Berry Bowl
Using a berry bowl is a nice way to serve freshly washed grapes and berries. Or to give as a gift with fruit from your garden (we have lots of limes and lemons coming in).
I bought this hand-made bowl from Annie’s Shop Most Lovely Things. She is getting more in if you don’t see them in the store and they come nicely packaged.
3. William Morris Office Folders
Do you love pretty folders as much as I do? It makes storing bills and other things more pleasant.
So it brightened my day when my cousin, Billy, and his able office assistant, Laura sent these to me (similar here).
4. Peperoncini Chicken One Skillet Dinner
Our son, Tommy made this for dinner the other night from Bon Appetit. It was delicious and good for leftovers too.
Tommy is staying with us for a couple more weeks until his house is ready in Orlando. We will help him get settled there.
5. Easy Kitchen Shelf Styling — Display The Things That Make You Smile
And speaking of getting settled, I helped style our daughter and son-in-law’s shelves last week with things they already had.
Adding cookbooks, plants, and art spices things up along with their beautiful Murano glasses that were wedding presents.
These things like the blue and white plates are nice to display since Luca inherited them from his family.
