Curtis and I love checking out local craft shows. We enjoy seeing artisans proudly displaying their creations. The ﬁrst time I saw beaded silverware, I was delighted. So simple, yet so beautiful. Dazzling Gourmet is a local, Canadian company that makes several lines of serving spoons, forks, knifes and sets, as well as wine bottle corks, book clips, salad servers and tongs. They offer a dazzling selection of coloured beads to match any decor, as well as lovely charms that appeal to a variety of hobbies and interests.
They have a line of Canada Souvenir gifts that are perfect for those wanting to take give something Canadian to a relative or friend on during their travels. My favourite is the Fiesta line of products decorated with rich, colourful stones. The boxed and carded gift sets make lovely birthday, engagement, wedding and anniversary gifts. The cake server sets, in particular, are popular with brides and grooms at the cake cutting ceremony on their wedding day. The beads can be pearl white, or can coordinate with the bridesmaidsʼ dresses. For this reason, they make great shower gifts. The tea, friendship, java and jam spoons make lovely gifts for any occasion. The many hors dʼoeuvres and condiment utensils are fabulous for entertaining. You can check them out on our Dazzling Gourmet page.
