"Borrowed" Candlestick Idea

I took a before pic on the candleholders but it is on another camera that is not here(of course) so maybe later. Anyhow, I sprayed these ivory ,they were originally that green and burgundy that we all have had in our homes at some point in the last decade! A couple of weeks ago I attended a wedding that had the most unusual decorations that I just loved! Each table at the reception was decorated differently with burlap and moss being the common thread. I saw the cups and saucers in several areas and fell in love. My husband's aunt had a career in the army traveling all over the world and she would buy bone china cups and saucers to commemorate the location. Luckily I inherited them. There are so many it is impossible to display them all and I have tried several places. Any ideas? Am loving these for now. What do you think?

  1. These look great. If you want to display a lot all at once, you could set up a shelf all along one wall sort of like a ledge perhaps on one long wall of your dining room or kitchen.

  2. I love the cups on the candlesticks. Did you put votive candles in the cups?
    I like Eileen's idea of some sort of rail or ledge. They were a lovely gift. Have a great weekend. Ginger :)

  3. I love the cups on a candle stick! I use to have cups displayed on a plant stand!

  4. Just loved the cups on the candlesticks! Beautiful idea! You are very creative!
    Hope to see you on my blog:)
