Pretty table decorations made from cups, sauces and silk flowers. Mix up some plaster, pour into cups and before it sets push in some pretty silk flowers. The clients loved it and they are so pretty :)

We recently made some pretty table decorations from old cups and saucers. Glue cups to saucers (they don't have to match).

what type of glue is used to securely hold cup & saucer?

Thanks for the Idea. We have a seniors week high tea coming up and we actually got our social group to create some centrepieces themselves, they look lovely.

hi all, our residents made the cup and saucer table decorations to be used at our major fund -raiser, and we received so many comments of how pretty they looked. The ladies also had a lot of fun choosing their flowers placing them in the cups. I have used many ideas from golden carers... thank you so much . Meredith

Hi all, I was shown a cup and saucer activity out in the community by a lovely client, the same as you suggested Jean but for a pin cushion. Inserting a stainless steel scourer inside this stops the pins from rusting I was told. I have yet to give this a go with my lot where I work. Cheers team xx Lyn xx

Thanks Jean, wonderful idea!

yes lovely idea,
we also used this idea and placed a piece of foam inside the cup wrapped in any decorative fabric to make a pin cushion. Then used any decorations such as beads, flowers, ribbions on the outside of the cup and saucer simply by using glue.

Great idea
