This post was originally done on December 2, 2008. As the year turned from 2009 to 2010, I find myself tackling cleaning chores that were neglected in the hustle and bustle of Christmastime. Polishing silver is a chore that got postponed until January. But December entertaining at Linderhof was sparse so if the silver didn't shine quite so much, it didn't matter.
I love to share previous posts with you so please join Chari at Happy to Design for her Sunday Favorites and see what everyone else considers their favorite!
Silver shines and glows at Linderhof -- whether a silver tray on the coffee table, the silver coffee set in the dining room or some silver candlesticks in the breakfast room. I'm pleased to join Beth at The Gypsy Fish for her second Silver Sunday. Please see what other shiny silver favorites are there.
Even though it needs polishing and attention, we do love our silver. We always pour coffee from the silver coffeepot whenever we have company. The smaller after dinner pot is used whenever we use the small demi tasse cups for after dinner coffee.
It is a chore to polish silver but I have always enjoyed household chores which includes polishing the silver and the copper.
My favorite silver polish is by Seeds, a British firm that I used to buy at Restoration Hardware. They still sell it but it is under their own label. In my opinion it is the best!
From the silver tea and coffee services to the silver trays which I adore, there is a lot of silver at Linderhof. A cold fall afternoon, with carols playing, is a good time to make sure that the silver is bright and shiny for holiday entertaining.
