Spice Up Your July Long Weekend with These Stylin’ Shakers


Setting a stylish table means paying attention to details, right down to the slat and pepper shakers. Why go to the trouble of roasting organic veggies and tofu and setting out a pretty tablecloth, only to ruin the effect with plain Jane salt and pepper shakers from the grocery store?


Here are five stylish salt and pepper shakers fit for entertaining.

  1. Amenity Arroyo Salt & Pepper Shakers (pictured above)
    Individually crafted by California wood workers, these walnut wood shakers add modern style to any meal. We especially love how the wood grain lends a sophisticated, yet natural touch.
  2. Domestic Aesthetic Salt & Pepper Shakers
    With their distinctive shapes and colors, these shakers make it easy to distinguish the salt and pepper (unless you want to play a mean joke on your guests). They’re also made in the U.S. from sustainable materials.
  3. Tablecraft Marbella Salt & Shakers
    These shakers are being sold in large quantities by a restaurant supply store, but we dig the simplicity of tinted, recycled green glass and their classic shape.
  4. Mudcloth Salt & Pepper Shakers
    Add flair to an ethnic dinner with these hand-painted, black and white shakers inspired by MudCloth textiles from Mali.
  5. Licor Delicioso Salt & Pepper Shakers
    I’d save these for a casual cookout or BBQ (hello? perfect for today!), but these mini liquor-bottles-turned-shakers are a whimsical way to set the mood.
