I fill the sweet little julep cups with a few blooms until their next use. Keeping them filled has seemed to deter other miscellaneous items being placed there . Currently we have it up slightly higher since we have a narrow island and Chris tends to hit his head on light fixtures, but we have decided to drop it later this week.

Rather than competing with them, brass compliments the wood tone.
