I love decorating. The discovery. The arranging. The organization. It’s like sculpting with objects. To me, one of the most enjoyable things about decorating is thinking outside the box. Taking an item and using it in an unconventional way. It’s exciting to find alternative purposes for things. So, I decided to start an ongoing blog series called “Dual-Purpose Décor” to share ideas on using décor outside the box.
This week’s dual-purpose décor item is a stemless wine glass. I picked up these beautiful ombré copper stemless wine glasses at TJMaxx. Keeping with this Fall’s trend, copper is huge right now! I thought these would be a great warm addition at my holiday table.
Well, how else can you use a stemless wine glass? I needed some quick and inexpensive table decorations for an anniversary dinner earlier this month. I didn’t want to order floral centerpieces. They were very expensive and for this small dinner, it seemed impractical. So, I decided to use those same stemless wine glasses as candle holders! I dropped some scentless candles contained in their own glass (to protect the wine glasses from the candle wax) and voilá! Instant table decor! They were perfect. Just the right size, inexpensive and looked very sophisticated. The best part, when the party was done, they can go back to being used for wine. Love it. So practical!
Stay tuned for future posts on more Dual-Purpose Décor ideas. Enjoy!
