Big groups as displays. Grouping objects is terrifying I've heard from some people and difficult to master. Trying to add something together and make a vignette is not working and things don't fit together. But it shouldn't really. It's nice when they differ but somehow they need to be a match. I know.
Some advice: Don't think of objects as a group in a circle, nor either a line, more a group with no regular boundaries. Try to match colours and even pop up the display with one object that stands out. Think about the height, objects should vary in height and be placed next to one that isn't the same height. You can use books to master that part. It can be nice to add some backdrop in art, photos, trays, dishes or just even a coloured or dark wall. Follow these and I know you can do it for you likings.
