Using Pretty Saucers

Finding pretty saucers at the thrift store
 for 10¢ to 25¢ is easy. 
There are so many ways to use them. 

1. A Catch-all plate for jewelry.
2. A small plate for snacks or cocktail party much better than paper.
3. A coaster for drinks.
4. Use them with mismatched cups.
5. A row of them down the center of a table
    topped with jars filled with flowers or
    votive candles.
6. A base for a fat candle.
7. A base for a chandelier's lights (you'll need
    to drill a hole in the center for this project).
8. A soap dish
9. A saucer for a small potted plant.
10. Add a little seasonal color to a candle
     stand, as I've done here.
The red Spode saucers from my dish set
look pretty for Valentine's Day or Christmas.

 without the colorful saucers.
Three mix-match saucers trio in red, white, 
and blue for summer.  
You may already have a random collection 
of saucers. Enjoy using them.

  1. Love the saucers and new ideas.
    Those were the days when I could go to the discount store for a pottery company and buy saucers for ten cents. Today GW has nothing below 99 cents. As a younger person, I bought those mismatched saucers for another reason-don't tell. I use to break them to get rid of my frustration instead of screaming and yelling.

  2. I love saucers! When we are in our camper I use them to sit on top f our big tea glasses to keep the insects from dropping in for a taste. Loved seeing the way you use them!

  3. Some great ideas! Many thanks!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  4. such a great idea never thought of some of these things. I use them for plants sometimes.

  5. I love all of your great suggestions for using saucers! My favorite was using them for a base on the beautiful candle pretty! Thank you for sharing - I'll be looking for pretty saucers every time I'm out thrifting!
