When we moved into our house almost a year ago my hubby accidentally dropped a box. It wasn’t just any old box. It was that box that just so happened to have all of the Vintage tea sets that we used on our wedding day! So as you can imagine we were both pretty upset as the tea sets were something we had hoped to pass down to our kids one day. Sort of like a family tradition. So instead of throwing the broken pieces away, I thought I would share with you my Repurposed Old Vintage Plate Garden Idea.

As you can see there were a few salvageable pieces that I could use for this project.

 

Supplies needed:

  • Vintage Plates – You can, of course, use non-broken plates and cups which you can find at your local thrift store.
  • An old planter – I found this one at a garage sale but terracotta pots would also do the trick!
  • An arrangement of plants – I used alyssum and pansies.
  • Soil
  • Small Shovel

Step 1 – Add soil to your planter and then arrange your vintage plates and cups in an arrangement that you’re happy with.

Step 2 – Arrange your plants around your plated and cups. I decided to go around the edges with alyssum and pop the pansies randomly around the centre.

  1. Such a shame that the teacups broke. Why does that happen to keepsakes? Placing them in a garden is a cute idea, but how about adding a fairy scene to the teacups? Faeries are always looking for shade don’t you know lol.

    1. I don’t know Leanna but it sure does suck!! LOL I did think of adding a little fairy garden but ran out of room with all of the broken bits!LOL

  2. Now I want to see pictures of your wedding. Love the idea of tea sets at the wedding. And love that you found a way to rescue some of them. That turned out really cute!

  3. Oh Sam, I think I cried a little inside reading that your tea sets got broken. So glad you were able to salvage some pieces and you can still look at them. Such a cute garden idea.

  4. Ouchie Sam, that must have been a bit of shock for you guys. I’m sorry they broke, but really impressed with how you managed to save an “oopsie” and incorporate them into the planter. Those pansies are such a beautiful backdrop for the pattern on the cups and saucers. It looks lovely

  5. I love your idea Sam! You have applied such a wonderful idea of broken crockery which can easily reusable in gardening area. Thank you for your idea and keep sharing these types of ideas.
