I had been looking out for antique plates and teacups to match these:
Unfortunately, as of yet, I haven't found anything to match that would be sturdy enough. But FMIL found some pretties in an antique shop and let me play!
|Lovely antique plates and platters!|
|Trying a double layered stand with milk glass plates|
Yes, that's the glue that will eventually hold it together

|Mix and match!|
After a while, and with the help of FMIL and bridesmaid Claire, I was able to decide on two arrangements that I think (IMHO) are gorg! Using some glass glue, I made them permanent! All I had to do was to line the brims of the wine glasses with the glass glue, center the plates and press firmly. I made sure to let them dry for at least an hour before moving them, just to be safe. And behold!
