Let's face it, cherry blossoms are pretty. Charles Viancin has created a set of cherry-blossom-themed silicone covers (for bowls and such) as well as some cute bottle stoppers in the same design.
While these evoke spring, they'll work just as well in summer. And, hey, when winter comes along you can pretend they're poinsettias.
Of course, if you're using them in the kitchen for cooking and storing, it doesn't matter if they match the season or not, right? You might want a bit of springtime in the midst of winter.
But here's the thing. They aren't just decorative - they're functional. For the covers, the protruding bit in the center of the flower makes a nice handle. And there's a hole for hanging the covers, should you want to do that.
Since these are made from silicone, they're flexible, heat resistant, dishwasher safe, and microwave safe. Like other covers of this type, they create a bit of a vacuum seal on bowls, but they remove easily when you grab an edge.
The small covers would be lovely for outdoor dining, to cover drinks.
Who's it for: People who have bowls and things to cover.
Pros: Pretty. Useful.
Cons: Sort of seasonal.
Wishes: None really.
