All shook up over Shakers: 101 Salt and Pepper shakers

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Some of the most eye-catching designs I’ve seen on a well-dressed table lately involve the humble salt and pepper shaker.

Many of them aren’t even recognizable - at least, not until you see the familiar holes on top. They boast impressive styling (and often, prices to match). Serve up your salt in style and pour on your pepper with panache.

With 101 designs indicated below, I’ve given you plenty of choices that sprinkle with sass. Bon Appetit!

Oh Happy Blog! said...

I must confess that I boast a very modest set of s&p ... which I keep hidden until an occasion arises that they are beckoned... but your well-edited selection here has me in a pickle trying to choose which would best suit my own table... in full view... Bravo to you on this post.

People St.Clair said...

There are so many wonderful choices that choosing just one set would be impossible. I guess I'll have to have one that suits my moods :)

kstyle said...

What an amazing post. i think my favorite are the alligator shakers. k

Allison said...

Walking to work today I thought to myself, "Man, I really hope Toast and Tables does an entry on Salt and Pepper shakers!" That's 100% true!

This entry perked up my rather dull day. :)

Teresa said...

Oh yes, I love unique salt and pepper shakers! Great roundup of some fun and classic ones!

Sarah Dennis said...

Danielle, I hope this post inspired you that you can show off your salt and pepper shakers with style! No need to keep them behind closed doors when they look this beautiful.

Sarah Dennis said...

Natasha, do you know what they say about Lay's potatoe chips? Betcha' can't eat just one! That's the way I feel about s/p shakers...You can't choose just one. Many of them are so reasonable priced, why should you limit yourself. (smile)

Sarah Dennis said...

K, the baby crocodile s/p shakers are ah---mazing! I can only dream of the day when I will be able to afford to put $475.00 "shakers" on my table; but a girl can dream right!

Sarah Dennis said...

Allison, didn't you know I have ESP (ha! ha! ha!). I'm so glad that this post added some "spice" to your day!

Sarah Dennis said...

Thanks Teresa! I wanted to provide choices, choices and more choices.

Barbara said...

I'm in love with those blue tagines.

studio wellspring said...

oh my ~ what a collection! my grandma would've gone crazy for this post (god rest her soul). she had a huge salt-n-pepper shaker collection. thanks for the amazing research & variety you've brought for our visual splendor.

K said...

Great post. We've actually had a hard time on this element in doing our registry, and this helps!

Sarah Dennis said...

These innovative styles, colors and materials are adding some spice to the otherwise plain 'o salt and pepper shakers. This list was so fun to make and I have so many favorites that I wanted to share.

K, I'm glad I could help; but how will you choice just one! (smile)

SW, your grandmother had the right idea - - - just start a collection!

Thanks Ladies for stopping by.

Brilliant Asylum said...

Fantastic post! I collect salt and pepper shakcers on my travels, but love some of these you have posted--especially the architectural ones.

Ten Thousand Only said...
