Bans are starting to lift and that means slowly but surely we can get back to our normal lives (safely, of course!). We can’t help but look forward to spending time with our friends and loved ones while showing them a good time, whether it be on elegantly styled patios or in the comfort of your own kitchen. We’re sharing our favorite styling tips. Starting with our favorite cookbooks, filled with recipes sure to satisfy everyone, and did we mention, they’re also great for creating a “wow,” design moment, in any kitchen.
Not only do these books include so of our all-time favorite recipes, but they’re such a great choice when it comes to styling kitchen spaces. These tips our some of our favorite ways to incorporate them!
Take a trip to your local farmer’s market and pick up so fresh fruits and vegetables! Not only are you helping your local community, which is so important at this time, but they can give your space an ever so subtle pop of color. Thanks to the seasonality of fruits and veggies, you can have an ever-changing display, or you can spotlight ingredients from the recipes.
Next, a useful tip would be to style your cookbooks using functional items such as utensils, bowls, or mugs. This is also a great opportunity to showcase pretty glassware or canisters that hold your utensils.
Sure, cookbooks are great at providing us with delicious recipes, but can we talk about some of the photography featured in these? And what a better way to create a moment then to put a delectable feast on display, not to mention there are plenty of gorgeous stands ready to be set on your counter.
