My Favorite Glassware Sets in the Dining Room

It’s Day Three of the Spring Refresh with my friend KariAnne at Thistlewood Farms. Today we styled the Dining Room and I shared some amazing Glassware Sets. I love the crystal style and how these glasses catch the light.

Why I Love These Glassware Sets

I know what you are thinking. “Another glassware set? Huh?”

Believe it or not, I needed a clear set of fancy glasses to use for our dinner parties. We often dine with groups of 10 or 12 and I just don’t have enough similar sized clear glasses. (I didn’t say matching because I have no problem mixing the new with the old!). However, I do have enough pink glasses. Ideally I wanted to find some vintage ones, but they are hard to find, and can get expensive. I wanted glasses that looked vintage but were sturdy and inexpensive.

And I found these!

How to Use My Favorite Glassware Sets

The Best Glassware Sets

Let me tell you why I love these glasses.

They are lead free crystal, and almost 6″ high. These are the Drinking Tumblers, which are great for water, juice, beer and cocktails. They are made in Europe and are 13 oz. They also come in the the Double Old Fashioned Tumbler size and red wine glass goblet size.

Gorgeous and Inexpensive Glassware Sets

I like them because they are thin but heavy and sturdy. That may sound like a contradiction but they aren’t fragile and seem like they would survive an accidental tap on my farmhouse sink.

I used these glasses for our dinner party last Saturday night. They looked so perfect on my pink themed table, don’t you think?

My Favorite Glassware Sets

We use ball jars as our everyday drinking glasses. Which means we use them at the dinner table for water, for beer, for juice, for cocktails, and even for ice cream (my husband uses one every night.)

These ball jars are so storing and I know that because I have dropped and bounced them on the kitchen floor many times.

If you searched my blog for “dinners” you would find these ball jars (small and large) on almost every single table setting. I love using these super cheap jars as drinking glasses. I also use them to serve dessert and I have made mini-apple pies in little ball jars too.

Glassware sets are a fun and great item to collect. I only like to collect items that I use and my glassware gets used all of the time! Don’t be surprised if you see my newest glassware at the breakfast table one of these days!

Frequently Asked Questions

How is glass different from crystal?

Crystal and glass are made from different materials. Crystal is made from flint glass and glass is made from sand that has been liquefied.

How can you tell the difference between crystal and glass?

The easiest way to tell the difference between crystal and glass is by clinking the glass (as you do when you clink glasses for a toast.) If the sound is kind of clunky, then it is likely you have glass. If the sound is kind of a chime, and makes a lovely sound, then the glass is likely crystal.

  1. Both the pink and the clear tumblers are so pretty. I saved the Amazon link for future reference as crystal glasses for everyday and fancy parties is hard to find. The pink reminds me of depression glass.

  2. The glassware is beautiful. I’d love to see how you store all of you decorations, glassware, flatware and china or pottery when not in use. That’s my biggest problem. Thanks

  3. Very pretty glassware! They add a lot of sparkle to your table.

    My favorite glassware is the Picardie line, which I’ve found at Vermont Country Store, and Williams-Sonoma. They come in several sizes, and are sold in sets of six or individually! Very comfortable to hold and sturdy enough for everyday, yet they could go fancy, too!

    1. I love glasses that look pretty and that you can use everyday. These definitely qualify, they are so sparkly!
