Gorgeous Flatware to Inspire!

Shopping Tips

You might already know that I have a love of flatware, particularly mismatched, silver flatware.  It’s not just the feel in my hand that I love, but also how it looks, which is why I often showcase flatware in my decorating.  Anything that is functional and beautiful is a win-win in my book!  So today’s post is all about the Pottery Barn Maxfield flatware that Hubby recently bought me for my 40th.  He knew it’s been on my Wish List for many years and I was thrilled when I opened this gift!  {Note: This is NOT a sponsored post – just sharing something I love!}

TIDBITS & TWINE - Pottery Barn Maxfield Flatware Set

 

One of my goals in 2016 is to improve my photography, so what better way to practice than to photograph my new flatware!  After all, doesn’t everyone take pictures of forks and spoons?!  Well, maybe not, but I just couldn’t resist showing off these new additions to my home and practice my photography skills.

The Maxfield flatware is made of silver-coated nickel, so it will tarnish over time, further giving it the illusion of vintage flatware {although, this does also mean more maintenance and upkeep}.  Each of the five pieces in the set has a different design, with tiny crowns embossed on the dinner fork and teaspoon to spark images of hotel insignias and family crests.

Since my set is still new, it is bright and shiny and has an almost white appearance to it, but I know it will darken over time.  This is our new everyday flatware, so it will get quite a bit of use and already I’ve enjoyed using each of the pieces.  The flatware is very sturdy and heavy, making it feel quite grand!

I’ll try not to overwhelm you with pictures of flatware in the coming months, but I’ll admit this set is a beauty to photograph and I had so much fun playing around with different settings and vignettes.

I have a new camera that I’m just starting to learn how to use, but until then, I’m using my old camera.  Even so, I hope to improve my photographs this year because photography is one of my favorite parts about blogging!
