Unless we have company, my large serving dishes just sit on the shelf, taking up space.
The other day, I was looking at my big pasta serving bowl, and decided to find another use for it...besides serving pasta.
The first one is really simple, and I don't know why I didn't think of it before. duh
Use the pasta bowl on your kitchen island to hold lemons, tomatoes, etc.
My bowl is just over 13 inches in diameter, and can hold a lot of veggies...if I'd been to the store to get any. :)
Instead, I used faux lemons and a bunch of spearmint from the garden.
The second one involves more cuttings from the garden.
Some of the sedum was getting leggy, so I cut it back, but didn't throw the cuttings away like I usually do.
I put a large hurricane in the center of the bowl, and tucked the sedum pieces around it.
Then, I added a little water to keep them fresh. Ta Da!
There...a casual centerpiece.
Hmmm...I think we might just eat supper at the table tonight. :)
Last, something to put on the coffee table in the family room...
...you got it...seashells.
I also used a placemat for a little more texture.
There you have it.
Three easy-peasy things to do with a big ol' pasta bowl.
Hugs and have a great week!
