Repurpose Chic Bangles at the Dining Table

It’s always exciting to receive exotic gifts from faraway lands I’ll probably never have a chance to visit. I felt that way when one of my friends gifted me a set of beautiful shimmery bangles to wear around my wrist. I’m not a particularly into a lot of glitz and glam, especially since I’m always working in the kitchen even when I have a party, but these bracelets were so so pretty, that I couldn’t wait to wear them. 

The problem was that when I went to put them on, they were too tiny for my big bones. I should have known better, as I never can fit into much in the South Asian stores where the ladies are much more dainty than moi.  But, I just couldn’t part with them and instead decided to repurpose them somewhere else- on my dining table.

Up close they’re even prettier than from afar. They’re not real, of course, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like these at department stores. I think my guests are going to love them during my next dinner party.
