And if so is there a cool alternative?

I've got a large silver decorative bowl on my kitchen table. I've always had pot pourri in it but i'm decorating soon and under the suspicion that i need to get rid.

Any ideas?

Yep. Naff and migraine inducing.

Naffacious, I'm afraid.

As for your silver bowl - how about some lemons or limes? China eggs? Snickers?

Thanks - the lemons and limes are an interesting idea!

Probably not for the kitchen table, (maybe better placed on a shelf discretely!? ) but how about a reed diffuser if you are looking for something to freshen/ make the air smell different.

It's not really about the smell, i prefer candles if i want a scent. It's more about what to put in the bowl!

My mum does a seasonal 'collection' in a big bowl. It's a bit random but she's quite arty and it changes every couple of months / when she can be bothered. Usually pulls in some flowers / nature but also other stuff so mini chicks and eggs with daffodils around March / April. Frosty looking glass pebbles and shiny foil stuff for Jan / Feb. Beach pebbles / sand / sunflowers for July / Aug etc.
