Pretty Shower Centerpieces....

This past weekend I was busy filling an order for a bridal shower.  I was contacted to make the centerpieces for the shower.  The client had seen the tiered platters I create and asked me to supply them for her daughter's wedding shower.   I assembled all the platters  on the kitchen's center island.  What was I thinking?
I have two teenage boys and you never know
what can get broken around the house!
Lets take a peek at what I made....

This was my favorite combination of plates.  I found these pretty PINK floral plates at a thrift store.  I paired it up with this devil egg platter that had a gold edge. 
 I thought it was the perfect plate to use.

Take a look at this teacup and saucer.It had a wonderful floral
print inside the cup. This tiered platter makes a great veggie and dip server. The teacup can be used to put a dip in.  These tiered plates where going to be used for the centerpieces for each table at the shower.  They displayed beautiful cupcakes on the plates
which were served for dessert.  

Each teacup had a pretty spoon that
 I embellished with a decorative button.
How do you like my new tags?
  I ordered  a new crown stamp for the tag. 
 I had to add a bit of bling by adding a rhinestone.

Here are the same printed plates that I paired up with a clear glass plate and glass sugar bowl.

I thought these pretty pink floral plates
would be perfect for the shower centerpieces.

I decided to try something new and group three different styles of plates together.  I topped it off with a glass creamer pitcher.  I think the colors were a perfect combination.

I wish I had photos to share with you
of the centerpieces with the cupcakes.

  Don't you just hate it when you forget your camera
to capture that perfect blog picture!

Just beautiful. Do you mind telling me which adhesive you use for your dishes? What do you use that holds the best. I make teacup lamps and Ive tried many things, just wondering if there's something I haven't tried.

Wonderful towers for displaying desserts. I just finished a tower of clear glass pieces which I will post about soon. Busy finishing up the estate sale...lots of work, time, and energy.
Your last creation is quite lovely, great color combination.
