Teacup display


Last night we went to a dinner party where I saw this interesting display of teacups on a wall in the host's dining room. It sort of reminded me of the displays I like of plates on walls. Going three dimensional is fun. These teacups have been collected by their owner over a long period of time. Hanging them takes a little bit of being anal, but the result is a fun and creative way to fill a space. Also, chicken tetrazinni we had last night was the best I have ever had as were the chocolate cupcakes with mocha buttercream frosting. I must get the recipes!!

This is a great idea!!! I have a ton of beautiful tea cups from my grandmother and this would be the perfect thing to do with them. Now you just need to come over and help me hang them! :)

Was just referred to your site by a fellow blogger. Love the tea cup idea. I also have a tea cup collection from my great grandmother, and was wondering how to display them. Do you happen to know how they hung them?

I am looking for a way to display my tea cups. This is nice - how are the saucers and cups secured to the wall?

Seems like many of us are taken with this display but we are also all asking the same question...HOW?

It looks like you could use a plate holder (I've found at Wal-Mart and Menards) & maybe use a ribion/ string/fish line to attach over the edge from the holder.
