6 Ways to use a Trinket Dish
Have a gorgeous trinket dish but nothing to do with it? We've got a few options for how best to use a small decorative dish this holiday season. We used our set of Oyster Shell Dishes from Alison Brooke Designs. They're hand-decoupaged and gilded in gold. While they're pretty enough to display on their own, we wanted to give you a little inspiration on other possible ideas for how to use the dishes.
1. MATCH-STICK HOLDER
It is candle season, which means match season as well! If you set out a few candles along your mantle or on the table, place one of these dishes next to it with a handful of beautiful matches.
2. BATH SALT DISH
My personal favorite! These dishes make for a beautiful bath salt display, especially if it's a shell dish like these. Place them on the edge of the tub or on any table you might have nearby. Pour a little salt into the dish and sprinkle from there into the tub. As a caution, salts tend to clump together if exposed to moisture. Make sure not to pour more than 2 or 3 baths-worth of salt into the dish at one time.
3. JEWELRY DISH
A classic use. Keep on your dresser or nightstand and use it to hold your favorite pieces, or the set you wear every day.
4. CRYSTAL DISPLAY
If you have a favorite crystal or two, find a dish that compliments them and display together.
5. CANDY DISH / CRAFT HOLDER
I didn't have any candy in the office, so had to improvise with our crystal skull charms :) Trinket dishes make for excellent candy dishes, particulary during the holidays. They also make stylish holders for craft items, particularly for photo shoots.
6. PURE DECORATION
Sometimes the dish is pretty enough to display on its own! Any of our oyster dishes are beautiful and unique enough to be displayed alone.
