The versatile cake stand

As a kid, I was always fascinated by the English way of having tea with cakes and to tell you, I love it even today!

Very recently my sister gifted us a cake stand.Now, this beautiful turquoise colored stand displays cakes elegantly.No doubt about it! But baking and displaying cakes is not done very frequently at my place, only once in  a while, on some special days. That made me think on its versatility.

This post is my attempt to showcase a variety of ways in which a cake stand can be used effectively and enhance the look of your home. Yes,I have tried using the cake stand even as a vignette holder! Not wanting to keep you waiting, lets get started right away!

Why not keep your daily stock of fruits on it.This makes it easily accessible and adds colour to your breakfast table. What say?

Even the humble poha seemed so good placed on the cake stand. Sometimes you have to serve the same old breakfast in a new avatar and it works believe me!!

Let us see, the cake stand being used as a vignette holder...

Eye catchy isn't it?
Diwali is around the corner, why not use it to display candles and lights.

As I experimented with each look, it gave me immense satisfaction and am determined to use my cake stand more often now! Did you like, what you saw? Any other idea that you would want to share, please feel free to drop in a comment. Eagerly waiting to hear your views...

Decor at Vatsalya

As a decor blogger I just can't stop myself from sharing beautiful and thoughtfully done spaces!
Today's focus is on the decor of a restaurant. This cafe/ restaurant  Vatsalya - Millet Cafe is in my city Bengaluru and very close to my home.

This is an unique cafe cum restaurant, the specialty being its choice of food. It is a millet cafe. All the items are centered around millets. In today's times of junk food and binge food, this comes as a refreshing and novel concept. I loved their thaali and it was sure healthy treat all the way and as a topping on the cake was the earthy, natural decor of the place.Let me share some clicks that I could manage with my phone.

This is at the entrance, a very pleasing arrangement of greens welcomes you and as you step inside brass lamps are kept on either sides. Everyday arrangement includes decorating the uruli with fresh flowers and leaves from the garden outside the cafe.

As mass produced items flock the market,am drawn towards these traditional and olden method of cooking food in mud wares.In all possible shapes and sizes these were an absolute treat to see!!!

A very rustic feel is what you get inside the cafe. We have all modern day facilities now, wherein not much of physical strain is required to pound your grains but no one can deny the taste of a simple chutney which is made by using the  grinding stone!! Is your mouth watering??

This was the setting that forced me to write this post...A very simple yet eye catchy and earthy tone set by using ceramic pickle jars and terracotta urns...

Awesome isn't it? I loved the place and if you are like me, you will love it too! I assure that.

If after reading this post, you are tempted to visit this cafe, do let me know your experience as well!
