Organize & Display China in a Unique Way!

Pin It

Do any of you have heirloom china that rarely gets used? I have a beautiful vintage set that was a gift from my grandmother. It means a lot to me. The floral design and the colors...white, blue, green, and gold...are so soothing. I was trying to find a way to showcase the china in a unique way, while at the same time trying to figure out a way to wrangle up those loose coffee cups and keep them safe.

Why not display them in a glass canister? This one is from Pottery Barn. I don't know what it is about glass (you saw my post yesterday!), but it seems to elevate whatever you put in it. Not elevate as in make taller but elevate as in style wise. You know what I mean? In this case, I simply formed a circle with the coffee cups by nestling the bottom cup into the top of the next one.

This simple solution adds a touch of organization and style to the dining room. It's part of the fall nesting I've been doing around the cottage. Can't wait to show more!
