Decorating with Tea Cups


My sister-in-law really knows how to make the most out of what she has, such a great idea.

I never would have thought to use tea cups to decorate the fireplace mantel. I was visiting my Brother and sister-in-law and I noticed the tea cups and was so impressed with her ingenuity. She always comes up with great ways to decorate but this one was new to me. She used these vintage tea cups, lined the front of the fireplace mantel and put little candles in each of them. The above picture is not the best because I was using a little pocket camera but you get the idea. It just looked so lovely and glowing with the fire roaring in the fireplace and the candles flickering on the mantel. I love fall for fires alone but add candles and the mood turns to complete romance.

Try this out and send me a photo of what you come up with. I will put your photos online for others to get ideas.
