Inspiration for a blog post can hit at any time. My latest hit was while I was working on the volume seven interactive catalog. I was going through checking links, business per usual, and entered in item number G11441 for a seemingly plain rusty scrapple pan.
You might look at that and think, “Ok, cool. What do you want me to do with that?!” I can’t blame you because that was my same thought! Then I saw the pictures on the site and said, “Duh! Why didn’t I think of that?!!” Maybe it was too early and my creativity just wasn’t flowing yet. Yep, that is my reasoning and I am sticking to it!
So seriously, I wanted to feature this pan because I think it is something easy to overlook and not see all the potential. It will make a great staple in your decor because you can really dress it up and easily change it seasonally. One pan has endless options so it can be used all year to house some beautiful centerpieces! Measuring at 2″ high by 10″ wide and 8″ deep, you can fit quite a few great items in the pan for a unique, customized look. Let’s take a look…
Rusty Scrapple Candle Display
Gorgeous, right? And perfect for fall. Luminaras are great; I love the faux flame that waves just like the real thing! The orange luminara with the bittersweet wreath is a perfect match! I can definitely see why bittersweet is a customer favorite and a KP Creek best-seller! Add a final touch to the centerpiece by resting it on a placemat.
Country Pumpkin Holder
Throw in some ivory and orange primitive plush pumpkins that are dusted with cinnamon and you will achieve a unique country fall centerpiece. To fill the pan up even more, nestle acorns in the open spaces. For added warmth, surround the pan with tapers in candle holders. Set this on top of a tan and red checkered table runner and complete the primitive country look!
