Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking. We sought out the best and brightest kitchenware to help you deck out your kitchen in time for the best season of the year.
1. Keep a vase on hand for a spring bouquet
This thing is the coolest. It looks (and stores) like a cellophane bag until you fill it with water. Then, it immediately turns into a stable, reusable vase. You can pop fresh-cut buds into it, or opt for the luminaries that hold floating candles.
The expandable vase from Modgy—Buy for $14.10 at Walmart
2. Opt for artful salt and pepper shakers
These gorgeous handmade shakers are made of elk antlers and hammered copper. Of course they’re beautiful and artful, but they have a serious enchanted forest vibe that may inspire you to venture out for a trail hike.
