There are plenty of ways to add color to your wedding reception table by way of florals, linens, centerpiece vessels, and of course china, charger plates, and flatware. However, one clever way to add a burst of vibrancy to tablescapes – that is often unexpected – is with drinkware. While water glasses, wine goblets, and Champagne flutes are typically clear, choosing a glassware style in a vibrant or muted hue will instantly add another dimension to your table and surely impress guests.
Soft pink or blush antique-style crystal-cut glassware is ideal for a vintage or shabby chic wedding, while amber-hued wine goblets create a warm ambience for a modern fête. Sage-colored drinkware is ideal for a rustic weddings featuring green, textured centerpiece arrangements, and blue-tinted glassware of all kinds can add a strinking element to any tablescape. Other popular glassware shades include purple – perfect for weddings with a purple color palette, as well as red and even black.
