When sourcing pieces for Audrey Would! my eye is typically taken to items I like. In retail that’s not always best practice, but with this vintage niche I find it generally works for me.
Awhile ago I featured this pretty amazing statement piece.
It’s a silver plated punch bowl by Towle, and I know not everyone is in the market for a piece like this, but I thought it would be fun to share a few different ways this punch bowl can be put to use.
After all, we do have the wedding season coming up! That means stagettes, bridal showers… you know how it goes!
Some of you might remember, I sourced this bowl along with another option for a customer by request. In the end the other piece was chosen, so this punch bowl became part of the Audrey Would! collection.
At our Holiday Shopping Event I featured the Towle punch bowl with a mix-and-match selection of silver plated goblets and coupes.
This bowl as a punch set originally came with little handled cups. Sweet, but I have to say, I do like the mix-and-match approach. It turns ‘sweet’ into ‘fun’!
Don’t mind the grainy phone pic. I just wanted you to see the martini glasses chillin’ on finely crushed ice! Isn’t this great?
On New Years Eve the Towle bowl was test-run for a similar use, but to chill Prosecco on cubed ice instead!
Another grainy phone pic, but yes, it really was ‘that’ good!
After seeing the range this great piece double-duties for, would you hold it against me if I said I was feeling bittersweet about its sale and departure? No, not me either! I am thrilled this fantastic vintage piece has found a new home!
Just think, the possibilities are endless!
Do you have any vintage pieces that stand in for other uses? Please share… heck, please send pics! Why not? The creativity of one expands the opportunities for another!
