Beans and grains have always been a popular choice, and there are several different varieties to choose.

The items will need to be used regularly; however, whilst they are on display, they will look incredible.

Vegetables and fruits are available in a huge array of different shapes and colours which make them ideal when searching for the best decoration for your kitchen. Choosing a variety of different, seasonal vegetables you can display them easily on the counter in a basket or bowl. You can easily use them every time you cook, and replace with another item.

Whether, you choose homemade pickles, jams, herbs, or fruit the colours will be amazing and stand out in every kitchen. These decorations will last longer than others; however, they do still need to be used within the use by date.

I've loved the look of grains and beans in glass containers. Looks so classic and homey. Now I've got to use that fruit bowl given to me last Christmas :)

I love the look of pasta/grains in a bottle. However we don't have space for such displays in our house.
