Creating Attractive Displays By Pairing Cookbooks With Kitchen Antiques And Collectibles

Styling Your Vintage Table Top Displays With Cookbooks

This post is about how to add colorful cookbooks to create attractive displays when showcasing your kitchen collectibles.

My friend Carol Morgan has the sweetest shop in Winsted, Connecticut, right on Route 44. Over the years, I have learned a lot from Carol, a former model who told me she spent a lot of time in front of cameras learning all about "styling photographs".

Styling Your Antique Displays

Carol has brought many successful techniques back to her antique business where she is a pro at making collectibles look just one step better with warm and inviting displays. As they say in the restaurant's all about presentation!

Coordinated Cookbooks And Collectibles

One of Carol's trademark tips is to take a cookbook which coordinates with the colors of the collectibles you are displaying and pairing the items together. Look how well the cookbook on dips looks with the teapot. She also matches themes... i.e. a vintage pie plate matched with a book about pie recipes etc.
