Storing Summer Statement Jewelry

No Comments »

Some of May's favorite summer jewelry.

I am always looking for different ways to store jewelry and I recently came across an article that showcased different ways to creatively organize jewelry.  One versatile idea was to use a modern bamboo utensil organizer to arrange this season’s large statement necklaces and bracelets.

Pictured is how I used the organizer for my own jewelry.  The necklaces can be paired together to create a favorite layered look or each section can be color coordinated. You can also store your stretchy or chain bracelets in another section so that all of your summer go-to jewelry is easily accessible.  I have found that it is much easier to create a polished look when you can see all of your jewelry at once.  You can place the tray in a drawer or on top of a dresser.

The simple and elegant utensil tray I used can be found at Target for $12.

Get ready to accessorize your drawer!

Michael Aram – Lotus Blossom Glass Tray & Tree of Life Serving Set

One of my favorite things to do at home is to host dinner parties with a group of good friends. I get SUPER excited for the visual set-up of my dining room table and which form of floral arrangement will be fitting for the theme of the party. I have to admit my husband thinks I’m crazy when I do mock-set ups the night before our guests arrive.

What I’ve come to realize over the years is that one can never have enough serving trays or sets when having a party. My lotus blossom glass tray is perfect for serving cheeses or cured meats and when it’s not in use, it’s a beautiful and modern decorative home accent on my buffet table. The tree of life serving set was a gift last holiday from a dear friend who truly understands how much I cherish home accessories.
