Pile it high with spools of ribbon, use to it keep chunky statement bracelets organized, or stack it high with bagels when you’re serving brunch. One of our favorite holiday uses—to keep cookie cutters organized while you have them out throughout the season.
Flower Market Small Colander
This small kitchen staple can do some seriously pretty work when it’s used for entertaining. While it’s great for its intended purpose of rinsing fresh veggies, it also can hold fresh flowers in a pretty arrangement. Feeling festive? Kit it out with candy-sprinkled cake pops to bring the fun in a deliciously sweet way. Have a whole pie on hand you want to display? Top the upside-down colander with a round plate, and you’ve got an instant display worthy of the yummiest blue-ribbon pie.

Let your green thumb go wild and create a terrarium in its base, or simply let it serve as a showpiece for dried flowers and grain stalks. At holiday time, nestle in a friendly snowman figurine and mini evergreens to create a frosty forest scene, or simply fill the lantern’s body with shiny mini glass ornaments.
