Being from Australia, and wanting a few decor items...the usual 'down under' decor found in the US is all about Sydney. I was so pleased to see this great plate with a map of Melbourne on it.

Decorative PlatesDinner plates aren't just for eating anymore! Actually, you might be surprised to learn that for centuries people have been displaying decorative plates, dishes and glassware in their homes and palaces. Whether you're looking to add a sophisticated center piece to your kitchen or dining room table or perhaps fill in some gaps in your curio cabinet, a decorative plate is one of the most versatile accent pieces around. Now it's time to return the plastic plates that came with your kids' play kitchen sets back to their toy boxes and class up your decor with some beautiful decorative plates!
No matter what design aesthetic you happen to identify with, you're certain to find a collection of decorative plates that complements your style. Whether you're looking for a colorful trio of decorative plates that match your kitchen rugs or a large modern decorative plate to hang in your living room, you'll be impressed by what Wayfair has to offer.
If you're looking to spice up your place setting, charger plates are certainly one way to go. Charger plates (also called service plates, underplates or chop plates) are larger decorative plates most often used to dress up a dinner table for a special occasion. Typically speaking, charger plates are for decoration only, and are removed once guests arrive. Other times, chargers are left on the table and used as coasters for the soup and salad course before being removed for the main entree.
When it comes to displaying your collection of decorative plates, there are a couple of popular options to consider. Oftentimes decorative dishes are displayed in a China cabinet or curio cabinet with glass doors designed to showcase whatever is inside. Many decorative plates come with their own plate stands that prop up your plates for better viewing, however plate stands can also be purchased separately for your convenience. Another alternative for displaying your decorative dishware is hanging it on the wall. Just make sure you find adequate wall hooks and fasteners that firmly attach to the wall and support the full weight of your dishes. The last thing you want to happen is for your expensive decorative plate to come crashing down to the floor.
