Sweet Inspiration [Milk Glass]

I remember seeing this wedding back at the tail end of summer on Snippet & Ink and falling madly in love. A lakeside wedding rich in awe-inspiring simple elegance, it caputres so much of what I find to be the perfect kind of wedding. Chelsea at {frolic!} featured some gorgeous images of a handful of the great milk glass centerpieces from the very same wedding yesterday, and it reignited my love for milk glass. How gorgeous are these?! Sarah of Classic Bride also used milk glass for her centerpieces and I can’t wait to see more images. Sarah also opted for all-white florals, which has been my intent from that start as I’ve had a lifelong love affair with white flowers, roses and peonies in particular. At any rate, along with Christmas ornaments my mother and I have been amassing a collection of milk glass over the past several months and now I am reinspired to get back out and make another push for great milk glass. In particular, I could use a few cakestands right about now. Is anybody else incorporating milk glass or maybe vintage mercury glass which I tend to be seeing around a lot these days?

I'm doing the same thing as you. Over the past few months my Aunt and I have collected about 100 pieces that we'll group and scatter around the reception. I haven't found any cake platters yet (other than ebay, and i'm too cheap to pay for shipping), but they are next on my list!

I really love this glass and these pictures. I think I would love this if I were planning a shower or eh-hem if the people planning my shower used these :) :) Something about them just seem so lady like, I love it!I do feel like my reception hall room is a little to formal, or maybe its that it is a little too dark to use these as our centerpieces. Love them though!

I love the pop of yellow against the white milkglass. So chic and understated.
