Dollhouse Miniatures | Miniature Dishes - Mini Tableware, Cutlery and Coffee and Dessert Sets

Updated on August 5, 2013

Miniature dish sets are just perfect for miniature enthousiasts who enjoy their decorating

Dollhouse sets are nothing new for most of us, and I'm sure we all know a person or two who just loves to have miniatures, small figurines and interesting mini sets at home, displayed for all to see. I can't say that I don't understand though, as there are some astoundingly beautiful tiny sets available for collectors and enthusiasts alike. In fact, I am sure that most people would love to have one of those miniature sets, whether they are miniature dollhouse dish sets or miniature books. And if you keep your eyes open for these dollhouse decorations, the range and assortments available is more than impressive - it's breathtaking.

A particularly interesting segment of making these miniatures is definitely the crafting of these tiny dish sets, tableware and cutlery sets, coffee and tea services and so on. The detail on some of these is so elaborate that it makes you wonder who had that sort of patience (naturally, I am referring to the handmade sets).

Regardless is a person is a collector or not, some of these sets will appeal to anyone who enjoys adding detail and decorating their living space. The thing is, these miniatures may just be the perfect gifts for anyone with a knack for decorating - so if you were wondering about a gift for your friend, wife, mother or anyone else who may enjoy these, you could be on the right path.

Below, I will list all of my findings for your enjoyment, and if you find the selection nice, funny, or anything else, feel free to leave some feedback at the bottom of this article.

    I still have the one my grandmother gave to me as a child. Had so many "tea parties" for my dollies with that LOL. Every little girl should have one.

Dollhouse Miniature Christmas Coffee and Dessert Service

It may not be season, but we all love Santa. These miniatures would make a sweet touch for anyone, regardless if they collect or not. They would particularly look nice next to some Christmas themed figurines, something red, etc. Anyway, it's easy to find a place for something as nice as this miniature coffee and desert set.

This adorable Christmas themed coffee and dessert set contains one porcelain platter with for dessert plates, tea cups on their tiny saucers, an adorable sugar dish and teapot on its lovely warmer, a fruit tart on a server, with 4 tiny little forks and fabric napkins.This would definitely find its designated space in any home to make it even warmer and more hospitable. On the other hand, it would make a lovely, thoughtful gift.

 

Miniature coffee and tea services

Miniature coffee and tea services are not just made to be toys for little girls, but we can also find some rather elaborate services made of porcelain and glass, so it's important to keep those away from small children. These kind of sets are usually produced with a lot of effort and attention to detail, although there are some cheaper sets that look nothing less worth to the common eye.

I'm sure that having one of these dollhouse services would not only look great on your shelves or wherever you envision them, but also awake some sweet childhood memories in case you had the opportunity to play with similar toy sets. And let's admit it - they do look adorable!

      My Dad made me a doll house when I was a child. When I got it for Christmas, I got all kinds of miniature sets to go with it. As I kid I enjoyed playing with it, but I took care of it too.
