I keep drifting to fun pieces of “french wire” this fall. I think they would be wonderful for a fall wedding or your Thanksgiving spread. I also think they are timeless pieces you could use for years to come.

Why do I love french wire so? First up, I posted about these Wire Sculpture Frame from Anthropologie weeks ago and I’ll admit that I’m debating ordering a few for our guest room. Then I ran across this wire pedestal and tray from Crate & Barrel. It will hold a 12 inch cake with style, and for $18.95 it’s a deal as far as pedestal’s go. I could see it with a vintage lace doily on the pedestal with cupcakes stacked on top (or a yummy carrot cake). And wouldn’t the tray be fun for holding cookies or other baked goodness? It’s also only $18.95. Then there are thesese place card holders from Pottery Barn. They would not only make nice place card holders, but I could also see them holding table numbers, menus, food labels, and even photos on my mantle! Then a simple search for French Wire on the Pottery Barn site yielded more goodness in the 3-Tier Stand, Pillar Holders, several baskets and even a French Wire Chandelier. And you can’t beat Pierre Deux for French Wire Baskets.
What’s new out there right now that just screams fall decorating and parties to you?
