My latest organizational effort revolves around my butler's pantry.
Until recently, every cabinet was stuffed with dishes, photography props, utensils and a little bit of just about everything and all of it, in serious disarray.
So, I pulled everything off of every shelf and got to work.
So, theme and color is how I tacked this space.
Now, everything floral is living in perfect harmony.
These pretty bowls were lost in the clutter for far too long. Nice to know where they are now.
I picked them up from Anthropologie and they always look great in my food photos.
Who knew glass and copper could get along so well together?
By the way, I found most of these copper pieces for a steal-of-a-deal at local thrift and consignment shops.
Keep your eyes peeled for such deals because these also make wonderful props for food photography and styling.
You could call this my Whimsy Collection with its chicken shaped dishes, ceramic egg cartons, bird-shaped pie vents, frosted glasses and ice cream cone-inspired dessert just to name a few whimsical categories.
It just makes functioning that much easier, doesn't it?
I love how white and ivory dishes look when they're separated like this from other more colorful ware.
I've spotted arrangements like this in some of my favorite "country" kitchens and I find that all white dish presentations like this, very appealing.
I'll have to keep my eyes open for just the perfect open armoire to do that.
For now, they will have to stay hidden behind the cabinet doors.
Well, at least they're all in order.
What a difference a little re-organization makes in one's life.
All clear and ship-shape.
Hmm, I'd say this barely looks like the same space.
So, what organization efforts do you have underway? ♥
