  • hmmm, I would get some of those lacey doilies. Try a ceramic red tea pot with gold swirls to go in the center

  • I wish decorating was easier. I would keep it antique and with the buffet them maybe shop a flea market and see if you can fine an old tea server (my sister in law found one made of glass ...odd piece but not very common. Or surf ebay or something.

  • A table runner with a few seasonal decorations or fresh flowers.

  • I have a similar piece. Mine generally as a crystal basket with flowers, or some of my antique teacups. I have some seaonsal runners and doilies I crocheted that I think go well with it. At Christmas we have a Lladro-style (NOT Lladro - I wish!) nativity.
