I have an antique 3 tier table but have no idea how to use it. What kind of items to display on it. Anyone with ideas?

I've seen it with a small collection on it (i.e. those limoges type boxes) and I've also seen it with a tea cup collection on it as well as full of African violets.

Any small collection is appropriate for such a table. Porcelains, pewters, etc. They will also work for plants as long as you are careful when watering them.

I have a three tiered table that I have a lot of fun with. I mostly bring it out at holidays.

The first picture shows how I use it at Thanksgiving as a punch server. In this photo my three little nieces have decorated the table with gold napkins. What can I say. I love them and they like to help. We'll leave it at that.

In this photo I am using the table to display part of our family Christmas book collection.

My table is vintage, not antique, and it is not valuable. (It sounds like yours may be much nicer) I keep mine stored and bring it out for holidays and parties.

Thanks for the ideas and photos. I'm going to have to search my house for ideas.

Indeed these tables are a great place to feature a collection such as tea pots, photos or plants.
