|I also have a very large set of pinkish glass dessert plates, dessert bowls, glasses, and parfaits that came from one of my husband’s great aunts. I use them for special dinners and both wedding and baby showers.|
|30 years have past, and its time has come again! Remember, it’s all about context. Green and gold glassware with avocado green and harvest gold accessories looks like a flashback to the 70’s. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 🙂|
Today, vintage 70’s glassware can look totally current. Pair amber or green with white or crystal for a sophisticated look. I like to use amber glass in the fall or winter. I use green both at Christmastime and during the spring or summer.
Blue glassware was not as common in the 70’s, but there’s still some of it out there. I found 7 blue water glasses at an estate sale for $14 total. I like it in the spring and summer with white and pink. Or even with my green for an unexpected mix.
A collection of vintage colored glassware can be an inexpensive way to add color and interest to your dinner table, whether you are entertaining or just decorating your tabletop.
