October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so you know what that means. In honor of the brave men and women affected by breast cancer, add a pop of pink to your kitchen and get cooking! The iconic rose color we have all come to love is making its way into your kitchen via your everyday cooking utensils. With a portion of the proceeds supporting breast cancer research, it is just all the more reason to bake "pretty in pink."
It's time to get stacking in the kitchen: everything from mugs, measuring cups, and even bowls is moving on up. These tall measures are not only practical, especially in small kitchen spaces, but they're also often stylish and unique. Aside from being fully functional, many of these kitchen gadgets are modeled after fun designs such as fruit, vintage milk bottles, or even matryoshka dolls.
Although this trend is making a comeback in stores such as Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and even Target, stackables were popular in the 1960s and 1970s, mostly featuring bright colors (and yes, a little flower power). Whether you are measuring, pouring, or displaying, these stackable sets are perfect for both quirky and classic kitchens. How's that for a good measure?
