I say have your florist do mini, pomander-like flower arrangements for them!  Delicious!

Tealight holders would be cute! Or if you flip the cup over, use a little museum wax on the bottom of it and stick the saucer with the printed side up, it could hold a pillar candle, just for some variation! If you did the teacup flipped over with the wax on it, then a glass plate on top, it could be a cute dessert stand!

Good luck!

I thought something like this was beautiful. My mom and I are collecting tea cups to use for the wedding/shower for tea and coffee but we might do something like this too

I think flowers would be beautiful.  I love the idea, especially given the sentimental value.  I’d make sure I put them where I could see them, like the head table.  Not just because they’re pretty, but I get paranoid about that stuff, I wouldn’t want anyone to break them.

These were my photographer’s centerpieces at her wedding.  The teacups were inside birdcages.  She also used one as a cake topper.

How about in candles or cupcakes inside them? It would be adorable for a bridal shower!
