I was lucky to find several gold and silver pots for about 1 € each at the local thrift store and I used three of them to create a center piece for our sofa table. As the large one was broken (which meant I got it on a discount) I lined it with a napkin and filled it with nuts.
I love how the three of them compliment each other, and I added some pearl garlands to give some extra christmas feeling.
I used two golden ones to display some flowers at a side table. I think it turned out quite nicely.
