Do you have a collection? Things you have that have a common theme? Items that you like to display… sometimes together? Today let’s talk about how to group them so they look amazing and not like they are the contents of a curio cabinet gone wild! I’m so thrilled to be a part of DECOR STEAL’S DESIGN INGENUITY CHALLENGE. Thanks to the kind folks at Decor Steals I have a ready made collections of gorgeous trophy urns and have been having fun styling them. Come see!

Here are a few tips to help you group like items and collections for a bold and fabulous decor statement!
1. GROUP LIKE THINGS TOGETHER!
If you have a collection display them grouped together! Don’t sprinkle them throughout your home. They have more decor power if they look like a collection! Make sure to display what you love! We need to live around things that bring us joy!
I love love love these beautiful Decor Steal urns! They have an aged patina and graceful shapes!
Varying the heights of the objects you are collecting and displaying. This keeps our eyes and mind happy! Varied heights are much more pleasing and interesting than thing that are all the same height. If the pieces you collect are all one size use decor risers such as books and small benches and stands and a stack of dishes to elevate some.
My large trophy urn is close in height to the other urns I used in this grouping. So, I filled two urns with hydrangeas and left one empty to vary the height of the overall display.
These amazing urns come in several sizes. But they are interesting and unique in other ways too that make for a very beautiful display! I am infatuated by the gorgeous detail on the urns like the intricate handles and fluted bases…
And the handsome embossed etchings on the face of some of the metal trophies!
3. DISPLAY IN ODD NUMBERS
It’s a time honored fact that displaying things in odd numbers looks better. Such a simple rule, but it works!!!!
I made moss balls (so much nicer than store bought) for the urns. There are so many fun things these trophies could be filled with. But they can also stand empty and make a sublime arrangement! Come back next week for an easy moss ball diy!
Every trophy is a little different… like a little work of art. And they work so well together without being matchy-matchy!
- Group like things together
- Vary heights
- Display in odd numbers
I can think of so many things to add to these urns… boxwood balls, pumpkins, ivy, succulents, fresh greens, candy canes, nests, sea shells, old silver, old books… and so much more! Don’t you think a handful of white tulips would be perfection in some of them?
What would you put in these pretty urns? Please share!
