I have yet to decorate with plates. But I want to. And here’s why…


Trash chandelier dessert tray – Dreaming in Color

Deneen’s charming dessert tray makes those treats look even more luscious!


Chalkboard plates on a wall – Offbeat and Inspired

Tiffany displays seasonal messages with her chalkboard variation. Cool idea! Love the pine storage unit too!

 Kelly breaks some decorating rules and does her thing in the most delightful of ways. I don’t see how this gorgeous plate grouping breaks a thing!


Ironstone plate wall displays – Knick of Time

Angie gets creative and creates backdrops to her plate and silverware collections. Aren’t they amazing focal points?


Decorating with Plates – The Lettered Cottage

Layla knows 3D like no other, and incorporates letters and trinkets with subtle messages alongside her gorgeous plate display.


Plates hung around the big black box (TV) – Miss Mustard Seed

Leave it to Marian aka Miss Mustard Seed to make a big black TV box perfectly charming. LOVE.

  1. I always enjoy this party and love the themes. I never seem to get my posts ready for the themes in time…but I still just love them. so many ideas…I think I need another house to do them in! Hahahha

  2. Love, Love, Love plates on a wall; or two. But…how are these hung? I don’t see any plate hangers on any of the plates?..I love your link party’s Donna!!

  3. I always love the look of decorating with plates, but I think I am hesitant for messing it up and having it look like someone threw a bunch of plates at my wall, and they stuck! I love the beautiful examples. Happy Friday night friend!

  4. Hi Donna…Well, you must know that this week is right up my alley! lol At last count I had about 70 plates on various walls in my house! And that is not counting all the plates on my two hutches! Thanks to Kelley for including my hutch in her collection. And thank you for hosting!…hugs…Debbie

  5. I love plates. I have a set of dessert plates with fork/knife/spoon on them in an old cheese crate. The grandkids like to set the table for dessert with them. Plus they look cool on the counter too.

    Fun party.

  6. Thank you so much for featuring my dessert tray. That is one of my favorite projects! I remember my husband wanting to throw that chandelier away and I picked it up turned it every way and came up with this idea. He still laughs at me. It is hard to throw anything away! lol Thanks for letting me link up too!

  7. A note to the wise: think twice before hanging plates in a bedroom. The springy hangers on the back like to jingle and rattle at two o’clock in the morning!

  8. Hello Donna!
    It’s always a pleasure for me linking my posts here, your party is fantastic and I find so many great ideas.
    I especially enjoy this week’s theme. I collect vintage children’s plates (and teacups) and I love displaying them where I can watch them and I also hung some tureen lids on a wall.

  9. What a perfect way to spend a Saturday night; a glass of wine (or two) whilst browsing all these wonderful linkups.

    Thank you for hosting Donna! Always a treat to participate too!

  10. Kelly has one of THE best plate walls. I love the styling and the combination she included. You come up with the best themes!! Thanks for hosting Donna – Hope Spring is finding it’s way to you.
