Salt + Pepper Shakers
When you want to shake up meal times, introduce some fun and visual flair using salt and pepper shakers from west elm. Variety is the spice of life, and with options ranging from cute animals to traditional grinders, it is easy to find ways to dress your tabletop to match the rest of your decor. Shakers in the style of mason jars are perfect for a country cottage or traditional home, while geometric shakers add some angular elegance that complements similar artistic or abstract room accents in modern homes. If you are preparing by using a white table linen to create a crisp, clean environment, chrome shakers, or minimalist white and black designs, help to maintain the elegant tone; but if you are going for a shabby chic or country cottage style, wooden grinders with a rustic or distressed finish are the perfect choice.
Flatware is another element to consider when preparing a table with a strong theme. Gold cutlery brings a hint of glamour, while black cutlery is startling and original, working well in a predominantly white dining environment where they create a dramatic contrast. Whatever style of decor you prefer, and whatever kind of dinner party you are throwing, by carefully selecting elegant salt and pepper shakers, serveware and linen, it is possible to create a wonderful ambience that makes every gathering special, and spices up your meals.
