7 Mod Salt Pepper Shakers ...

To me, decorating is all about the little details. Sure, the big things, like furniture and art are important, but so are the tiny touches, like just the right table linens and a completely adorable, themed salt and pepper shaker set. Call me crazy, but I love them, and I think they can make such a difference on a table! Don’t believe me? Here are 7 mod salt and pepper shakers.

6 A Petite Pinch of Pepper Mill

A Petite Pinch of Pepper Mill Price: $37.99 at modcloth.com
Freshly ground pepper is so much spicier than its pre-ground counterpart, and perhaps part of the reason why, at least at your house, is this sweet nesting-doll inspired pepper mill. She’s a cheerful red with rosy pink cheeks and a traditional eastern European dress, ready to add style and spice to every dish!

7 Vintage Jolly Joeys Salt and Pepper Shakers

Vintage Jolly Joeys Salt and Pepper Shakers Price: $24.99 at modcloth.com
These jumpy joeys date back to the 1960’s, and are so adorable! I love the yellow and blue bows (so you know which is salt and which is pepper) and of course their mommy kangaroo, in whose cozy pouch they reside when they’re not providing seasoning support.

See? Salt and pepper shakers don’t have to be boring back and white anymore… they can be fun, stylish, adorable, chic… just like you! I adore the little mushrooms and the pepper mill is really cute, too… which of these salt and pepper shakers do you like best, and why? Please let me know!
