Displaying family heirlooms and china collections are becoming a lost tradition. Newlyweds are not registering for china as has been so popular in the past. Collecting one set of dishware is more common these days. Even if that is the case, your collection should be displayed as beautifully as they look set at any tablescape. 

My client Cathy, wanted to display her family china that had been tucked away in cupboards and not seen for years. It usually only made its appearance for family dinners and special occasions. I was able to display these items front and center by pulling pieces and sets to coordinate for a full display.

Stacking plates adds height, as does adding a book or two to your setup. Using books with a color coordinated spine or entertaining theme make for the best props. Glassware looks lovely as well sitting within hands reach, ready for any Cheers!

Luckily, Cathy’s beautiful home has these built in shelves perfect for displaying treasures. I cleared the shelves and brought in the pieces I wanted to make prominent. Keeping collections together makes for a beautiful display and pops of color add interest.This shelf display tops off the whole room and adds to the beauty of the home as guests can sit and view the treasures.
