I LOVE these dishes. In fact to make a full confession, I LOVE dishes. We are fortunate enough to live by the most amazing thrift stores. In these thrift stores there are always amazing sets of dishes for little money. I believe I spent $35 on this entire set of dishes including serving dishes for 8 as well as a tray, this lovely bowl and salt and pepper shakers. I love the simple design and I love that it is probably from the 50’s. I was struggling to find a place to store them and I was also sad that I couldn’t see them all the time. So I decided to try something new and display them on my kitchen cabinets. I am thrilled with the outcome. I love the display. What do you think?
To do the display I didn’t buy anything new, I just decided to go with silver and blue and looked around the house for things to put together. I started with something higher in the middle. The serving tray was too small so I had this old silver tray and I love how it looks behind the serving tray.
I used this plate display stand, however I believe I could have just stacked the dishes and they would look great.
Then I looked on Pinterest and found some people displayed cups in these clear cylinder vases. I had some vases left over from a wedding, so I stacked the cups with the handles alternating as pictured. I love how they look displayed this way.
I had bought this bird and pewter dish at another time at the thrift store and think they added a nice touch to the display.
Really I spent quite a bit of time just placing items together and then moving back to see how I liked them. To me decorating is a lot of trial and error. I’d love to hear what you think or what you might do differently.
