These little beauties are abundant in France and are used still today to propagate herb seedlings.  Once the herbs have grown to full size they can be snipped and the pots then can become vessels to hold the herbs such as lavender or herbs de ProvenceIMG_2789

They are the perfect container for the olives and Italian beans on this Charcuterie spread.  As well, add sprigs of rosemary for scenting the table.IMG_2781

They are ideal for serving jams and jellies, or a French mustard perhaps.  IMG_2788 An herb pot with orange marmalade is an unusual and clever way to serve your jelly at morning breakfast.

Fill one with coarse sea salt and place next to the stove.  They make great candle holders as well – the perfect votive for a table.  They are also great conversation pieces when used in any capacity at mealtime!

At $9 each they are a perfect little gift. These herb pots can be found at Aubergine Antiques in Fairhope, AL.

Au Revoir!!  A La Prochaine!!
