Vintage Milk Glass-Perfect Wedding Decor

Classic, simple, yet elegant!  That is why I love milk glass!

My love started over 20 years ago when my husband's grandmother gave me her grapevine milk glass goblets!  I started using them on my mantel at Christmas time, since they made a beautiful white display for the holiday's!

Since I've opened my milk glass shop, I've learned that milk glass is very popular with bride's!  It makes sense!  Simple white milk glass, what could be better for a beautiful classic wedding!?

Whether it's Fenton hobnail, Indiana Glass, Imperial Glass, there are so many options, and it's so much fun to mix and match the patterns into one gorgeous display!

Of course milk glass is not just perfect for weddings!  I have an entire built in shelf in my dining room devoted to my milk glass collecton. 

As you can see, a large Fenton basket can be filled with Easter eggs for an instant holiday decoration! 

Filled with flowers for the bride, or bud vases lined up on your window sill, you may soon become addicted to milk glass like I am!


Beautiful filled with a bunch of flowers!
