Rustic Holiday Decorations in Asheville  December 17, 2012 – 00:00

I ran across these lovely holiday decorations during my visit to Asheville and wanted to share them with you.I love how the vintage kitchen gadgets are strung up as a garland...what a cute idea! I think this was along the front of Tupelo Honey,which is fitting.

I've seen box graters used as light fixtures and muffin tins repurposed for organizing things,but I've never seen them elevated to decor in such a unique way.


I think it would be cute to decorate an entire Christmas tree with kitchen themed items....for instance if you had a large collection of antique cookie cutters.Here's another neat way a blogger named KayteeJane turned her vintage cookie cutters into a festive holiday garland.

There are so many things we can do if we just get a little bit creative. Often,I think about our ancestors who managed to do so much with so little. Surely with all the resources we have today,we can do more with less!

Does the shower have a theme?

That's usually a good place to start. If it's a kitchen shower, for example, then you could basically go wild up to your budget at any store that carries kitchen accessories. Or if it's a lingerie shower, that's a different store. Other showers I've been to have been a linen shower (sheets/towels/etc.)
I've heard of bridesmaids or groups of friends getting together and pooling their money for an expensive kitchen item such nice KitchenAid mixer, for example -- $250 is a lot for one person, but five or six people splitting the cost makes it reasonable.
If the bride and the groom have been living together, they probably already have quite a few household items

Other options

Marinated artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, olives, bread dipping seasoning mix. An Italian cook book, made by you or bought cheap. other kitchen items like a cheese grater, garlic press, or fancy bottle for the oil. A red plaid table cloth and some tall taper candle holders with candles. An Italian opera CD. An Italian themed book, like a travel guide or coffee table book, a copy of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, or a biography of anyone Italian. or a movie like the Italian Job or Roman Holiday, or Lady and the Tramp. Depending on what you can find for how much, this is a great idea with lots of fun options

Here's two thoughts I have for you...

On it awhile...
You have marketing, design, cooking.
What if you pitched local upscale stores (kitchen stores, department stores, interior design stores), but I was thinking more like big dept. stores) to put on some theme-based demonstrations, using their goods (kitchen gadgets, pots/pans, food processors, etc.)in a matching designed arena, cooking theme-based foods. This way, you could market their goods (furniture, kitchen items, specialty packaged foods, design accessories). You could, for instance have them sponsor a "Country Comfort" night, featuring roast beef, potatoes, etc

Not only did I see, I went crazy

And bought alot of it. I'm moving soon and thought it would be fun for themed kitchen. But, now away from the excitment of the dollar shopping, I'm thinking I'm going to return it.
Hookahchick,if you're interested I could email you pics of what I bought before I return it.
Those dollar items can go fast...they may not have any left.

    Jun 17, 2007 by ava ann | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    My entire kitchen is done with an Italian/Tuscany theme. I have lots of wine bottles, grapes, and vine arangments throughout the whole thing. What are some other things I can decorate with to add to the theme but not have more grapes, wines bottles or vines?

    • I am married to an Italian for 36 years and have helped in several of his families kitchen. Here are some of the things I notice they all had. They all had several heads of garlic hanging on a string. They had the real st …ie jar filled with cookies. They have a pasta machine handy and big platters on the backs of the counters. They have small lamps on the counters and a big cutting board with a big cutting knife for bread. Hope this helps.
