My customers buy vintage glass for lots of reasons and one of the most fun is to use the glass to add a different look to weddings and showers. Cake plates are popular for serving treats in style. Last week a customer bought one of my Cameo plates to display a cake for her niece’s shower. I bet her cake looked great!
A couple years ago a lady bought two champagne glasses because the delicate filagree etch exactly matched the ornamentation on the wedding invitatations. And of course sometimes people buy anniversary gifts that reprise the couple’s wedding crystal. I can image how special it must be to open your gift and see that treasured stemware to replace the pieces broken over time.
Color themes are always popular, especially pink, and there’s no better way to add pink than by using pink depression glass. The colors and styles are refined look elegant – no one will mistake your pink table for a Barbie party! I love the look of mixing all kinds of glass and pink depression glass works well when you blend patterns.
Wouldn’t the parties shown this blog post be fun? The pink glass has plenty of charm and good looks and the color is delicate enough that it’ not fighting with the pink flowers and table linens. Several photos show recent glass, including the swirl table setting which is from France in the 1970s. Just think how great these would be with real depression glass!
You can use the same idea for all sorts of celebrations. Are your school colors blue or green? Then consider any of the blue or green dishes for serving cookies at the graduation party, or use lovely vintage crystal stemware for an intimate engagement party. Elegant and depression glass always looks great.
