{Top Ten} Ways to Use a Silverware Caddy

Sometimes you get something and it’s just too cool to use exclusively for its intended purpose.  Ya know?  That’s how I feel about the Give Thanks Wooden Caddy I received recently from Dayspring.   It’s absolutely gorgeous … and so I decided to figure out some ways to use it beyond the obvious.   I did find quite a few!

I love November … the weather is really cooling off here in North Alabama and the thoughts of spending time with family over the holidays have moved from wistful dreaming to concrete planning.    November is when we are intentional about giving thanks, recognizing the many blessings the Lord has poured upon us, and, for me, focusing on what matters for eternity- people.   I love this season … and I love products that gently refocus me.   I’m thankful for companies like Dayspring for creating quality products that allow us to bring Scripture and grace and beauty into our homes.

So, which of my ideas did you like best?   And, what would you add to my list?

  1. You are so fun! I want one of those now! SO CUTE.

      I really do love it … and I knew there were so many uses for it. I’m not really a silverware caddy sort of person. 🙂

  2. How about in the bathroom with makeup brushes and lip gloss? Might have to put a piece of styrofoam in the bottom so the brushes/glosses will be seen. Also, in the kitchen with tall/thin oil & vinegar crusts. I love this!!

      Love those ideas! You would have to put something in the bottom … the caddy is deep!

  3. All great ideas! I especially love the candles and the bookend idea. It’s always awesome to find a product that has multiple uses.

      Yes, and I love experimenting to find new ideas!

  4. The practical side of me says for silverware and FOR SURE the remote controls BUT…the impractical side of me likes the jewelry display just for the beauty! How creative of you – good ideas!!!

      I left it as the jewelry display … I love it on my dresser and especially love the juxtaposition of its rustic look with the femininity of my grandmother’s milkglass next to it.

  5. This was great – loved it! I love being organized and when I can do with something that is so pretty, that is even better! I liked a lot of the ideas but I think my favorites were the candles, art supplies and remotes! The bookend was cool too – which was great b/c then it can be combined with another idea, like flowers! Thanks for the great ideas!

      Stephanie, it is a great product … I’m trying to decide how to use it at Thanksgiving with the whole family … I have a few more ideas. 🙂

  6. Fun post! I love the bookend idea, too. Is it big enough it could be used as a “mail sorter” at the entryway table?

    I’m not a big decorator, but I LOVE the meaning by DaySpring’s products. What blessings.

      Caroline, I don’t think the slots are wide enough for envelopes. But it could hold keys and sunglasses, etc.

  11. I’m not really a silver-ware caddy kind of person either so I must admit while I thought that was a nice looking piece by Dayspring I questioned it’s purpose in my home. I am however an everything in it’s place kind of girl and I love the idea of using it as a remote caddy. Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Ooh. Remote caddy! I like.

  13. That was totally creative and fun!

    I loved the use for art supplies and as a bookend (maybe you could use it to store bookmarks inside. We seem to always misplace ours!) 🙂

      Thanks, Shari! I *think* I’m going to use it for flowers on my Thanksgiving buffet table … but I really did like it as a cornucopia also … dilemma!!

      Aww, thanks, Su! I do love Dayspring!!

  18. Love this post!! I already ordered the caddy- just because it is so cute and what a deal….but wasn’t sure when I would use it, besides maybe once a year. Well, you just blew that thought out of the water! I love the remote holder for everyday and the flowers for decorating. I may just go back and order another 🙂

      Yay! I love mine … and am thinking about ordering for myself too.
