The glassware is so pretty! I would mix it up all over the shelves in sets of threes or fives and use plate stands to stand up the plates.

chasesgirl:  If you want it all on the top two shelves, I would create a colored backing for the bookshelf. You can do this easily by wrapping the paper of your choice- wallpaper, wrapping paper.

You can attach it directly to the back of the bookcase using double sided tape, or you can glue the paper to  or wrap a piece of thin foamcore, luan or fibreboard cut to fit exactly inside the shelf.

Cardboard Fabric/wallpaper for Bookcase instead of paint! – great blog for DIY ideas @ DIY Home Ideas

Otherwise as the pp has suggested, you can cluster it in groups amongst the shelves. Place some of your books sideways and stack crystal on top of a small stack of books.
