Why You Need Colored Glass on Your Spring Table

| | |

I love setting tables for spring! It’s fun and I especially love how much using colored glassware can enhance your spring table.

Today I am sharing all of my colored glassware and ways you can use them when setting tables for spring.

Spring Table with Colored Glassware

I have been collecting colored glassware for a very long time. Three of the pink glasses are vintage and the other one costs $6 on Amazon. Can you guess which is the new one?

If you guessed the pink drinking glasses pictured above then you are right. I found these pink glasses on amazon and I fell in love with them right away. They come in two sizes and in multiple colors. And they really do cost $6 each.

The other pink glasses are pink depression glass (on the far left) and two cranberry glasses on the right.

Colored Drinking Glasses

These are my newest colored glassware are they are awesome. They come in a set of six and I love the colors, although the glass on the right is technically green. The light just turned it more yellow than it really is.

And since my spring colors are blue, green, and a bit of purple, I knew I had to get them. I bought two sets so I have four of each color. Get ready to see these on my tables really soon. (They actually just arrived last night.)

There are so many different types of colored drinking glasses and colored wine glasses available.

Here are some of the ones I love to use. (Most are listed below with links.)

My Favorite Colored Glassware – Cranberry Glass

The deep pink classes are actually vintage and are referred to as Cranberry glass. All of the other glasses in the photos are new.

What is cranberry glass?

Cranberry glass or Gold Ruby glass is a red glass made by adding gold salts or colloidal gold to molten glass. Tin, in the form of stannous chloride, is sometimes added in tiny amounts as a reducing agent. Unfortunately, cranberry glass can be quite expensive.

How much does it cost?

Generally, cranberry glass carries a pretty high price tag — though smaller or less intricate pieces can definitely be found for less than $100 for an entire set. Exceptionally made pieces with lots of detail will likely be more costly, while those that are simpler or have imperfections will be cheaper. Depression glasses can usually be found for $20 – $40 for a small set.

If you want to shop for cranberry glass, shop here. There are some really well-priced sets of vintage cranberry glasses available now as I just did a bit of shopping myself!

Of course, I love these new pink goblets I found on Amazon for $6. They are fabulous.

Spring Table Hop

I set this table with the pink and white runner at the flower mart, with Royal Staffordshire plates from TJMaxx (they were $4.99 each), ball jars with flowers from Trader Joe’s, and copper candlesticks from Amazon

I guess you just might call this a budget spring table. 

But I think it is quite gorgeous.

In fact, I love it! The pink looks great and the light shining through the pink goblets is incredible. 

How to Use Colored Glass on Your Spring Table

When I was taking these photos, I never noticed the pink Camillas through the french door. Oh my gosh!

I bought these Royal Stafford plates for $4.99 each at TJMaxx last year. I have loved this pattern forever (I have it in blue and black) but had never seen these plates in pink.

  1. Leslie your site is spot on ALL the time! The refreshing experience greets me with open arms. Itโ€™s easy, personal, relaxed, over communicated, and the included list to find items I may want to purchase is a click away. I wish I had been connected to your posts since day one. Thank you for what you do Leslie. KC

  2. I ordered the pink drinking glasses last year on Amazon after seeing them on one of your posts. I love them. They are very nice glasses and friends cannot believe that they are not vintage. Love all of your table settings. Beautiful serving pieces and place settings are one of my weaknesses.

  3. My god Leslie they are all so beautiful. I would never be able to decide which glasses to use, and would ultimately end up drinking water straight from the tap.
