    This is such a cute idea, i know i have some platters, i just don’t know how much stuff i have to decorate with. I do have lace, this covid 19 thing is terrible for running to the store just to pick up a few things, ugh!!! Thanks Lora.

      Beg, borrow, but don’t steal, Marlene! And yes…stay home and stay healthy!

    Oh, that is REALLY adorable! I would have never thought of that!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m thrilled to send a new idea your way, Julie!

  3. I love what you did with these platters. So cute and such a great decorating piece for Easter.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you enjoyed them, Pamela! They do make a big statement, with little effort and cost!

      Thanks, Gail!

  4. What an adorable idea! I’ve never thought about platters being the shape of Easter eggs. You entire display is so charming!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You’ll never look at another oval platter the same, Paula;) Thanks!

  5. Oh my gosh, these are so much fun! What a great way to get festive without having to go permanent with it. They made me smile 🙂

      Glad you liked them, Sheila! It was as much fun as an elementary-aged craft project! Now I get to enjoy all those wonderful, vintage and new trims, too;)

  6. Cute, cute, cute! Love the trims you used–thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

      Anyway I can use dishes, you know;)

  7. Lora, these are adorable; wish I had an uncluttered shelf to do this with. I love the pastel colors of Lu-Ray. I, too, love the bluebird plate; I inherited the love for bluebirds from my Polish grandmother; she had pillowcases and a figurine! Don’t dare start another collection! I have an awful stash of braid, rick-rack and lace trim that’ll never get all used on doll clothes for grands! This’d be a great way to use some of it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I know I can’t start any more collections, Kathy! If anything I need to let some go…but that would be like choosing one of my children over the other! This disease comes from my grandma; she had a little Polish in her, too!

  8. This is just the cutest idea, Lora! Another item added to my thrift store shopping list because Mama needs some colored oval platters! Pinned and sharing

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Always good to have another treasure to keep an eye out for, Marie;)

  9. What a cute idea! And a neat way to use up ribbon pieces that aren’t quite long enough for anything else. The whole vignette is just adorable!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Audra! I can’t stand to throw away even a bit of that hand-crocheted lace or that vintage trim! A great way to see them out in the open, too!

  10. I love the little platter with the bluebird–those are hard to find at a decent price. I finally have one…a little creamer. This is a cute project and I like that it’s not like that forever, so you can re-use the platter for other things when you’re tired of them this way. I can’t imagine the time women put into all the hand-crocheted trims!! Now, things are more convenient but I think we’ve lost something in the process. Absolutely love your vignettes!!

      Thanks, Vikki! Yes, I didn’t want to permanently damage the plates! This is just a quick , easy, creative project for fun! It is hard to find bluebird pieces that are affordable; they are highly collectible. This platter is actually huge; I should look up how much it’s worth. I picked it up from someone before their estate sale because I was helping them out with pricing and advice. I do treasure it!
