Lauren (@thriftyblondeblog) is on the blog today with some amazing summer kitchen updates!
During the warmer months, especially summertime, my family loves to spend time outdoors. We also love to have our family over to eat, swim or just spend the day. With summer quickly approaching, it was time for a trip to Old Time Pottery!
When I think of a hot summer day, an ice cold glass of lemonade comes to mind! I decided to create a serving tray with lemonade and cookies for a little summertime entertaining. Old Time Pottery has a wide variety of pitchers and glasses but I was able to find a pitcher for only $5.99 and two drinking glasses that looked similar. I also found several white saucers for less than one dollar each! I also picked up a bar spoon to stir the lemonade and a kitchen knife with a blade guard. And to house all of these items, is the most beautiful wood tray with handles, that will stay in my kitchen as permanent decor!
I also grabbed a few items to add some color to my kitchen! I added some pretty blue candlesticks to my kitchen table, right in the center. I love the simplicity, yet bright color it brings to that area now! I found two small vases to go atop the ledge in my kitchen and I love the color and texture they add to the space. I also put a sprig of greenery in the round vase from the many choices Old Time Pottery has in their floral department. The candlesticks and vases all had green stickers meaning they were 25% off so I got them all at a great price! Lastly, I picked up some canisters to hold coffee, sugar, etc. and a set of three hand towels to hang on my oven to bring in colors from my living room.
I am Summer entertaining ready thanks to Old Time Pottery!
