I assumption the closest thing I have to a household heirloom is a gorgeous, ruby red punch bowl that I utilize now as a fruit bowl. I value the gem-like qualities of the bowl the exact same method I would if it were a genuine ruby, say, in a super-sized cocktail ring that was left to me.

The punch bowl was part of a set, however the only pieces left include three small, round plates. even a cracker looks elegant against this rich red background. These plates are most likely the reason I love glass dinnerware, whether it is crystal clear or in deep gemstone colors. however I knew there wasn’t much of a possibility of quickly discovering a modern, glass dinnerware set in deep colors.
Gleaming sphere of Cobalt
So envision my excitement when I walked into a Walmart store as well as saw a jewel-of-a bowl in shiny cobalt blue. The bowls, which can be utilized for cereal or soup, are made by Anchor Hocking. I picked up four to buy, however I didn’t stop there. On Anchorhocking’s website, there was an entire 18-piece dinnerware set selling at a huge discount. I ordered it. Walmart likewise has sets online.

The excellent thing about glass dinnerware is it’s extremely cheap. The ones we’ve seen in 18-, 20,- or 24-pieces are all under $60. For that low price, you can set a beautifully inviting table. as well as since the glass dishes are muted–even the cobalt blue set is unassuming–they won’t clash with any type of dinnerware you may add from a non-glass set.
Glass Dinnerware on a Budget
Another blue dinnerware set in Anchor Hocking’s collections is the 24-piece Rio Coastal Blue, selling on its site for $49, reduced from $158.
Squaring It Off
The glass dinnerware collections seem to all have space for the square-shape, which adds an artsy look to the dinner table. Libby, likewise a big American glassmaker, has a clear, square set that looks like a flat sculpture.
Square simplicity is the best method to explain these pieces that are part of a Libbey 12-piece dinnerware set, sold by Target for $29.99.
Here’s an idea: If you take pieces from the cobalt blue set, add clear glass pieces (they would be a great stand-in for white) as well as mix them with any type of non-glass red dinnerware, the presentation would work for celebrating the summertime holidays.
