A trio of rustic reclaimed wood shelves fit into a gorgeous wine bar n the great room of the 2017 Design House, a fundraiser for the Historic Macon Foundation in Georgia. Designer Sally Draughon displayed glass goblets and tumblers with a bottle ready for entertaining with ease.
Formal dining doesn't have to be fussy. The mismatched glass goblets and loosely arranged centerpiece keeps this table from feeling too stuffy, while sterling silver, linen napkins and place cards keep it dressy enough for holiday dining. Strike a balance that's comfortable for you, your family and guests.
This formal dining room table setting incorporates a heavy linen tablecloth, several china dishes, crystal goblets and a full bouquet of flowers as a centerpiece. An ornate chandelier and fancy blue dining chairs add to the elegance of the space.
Keep an assortment of different herbal teas easily accessible and neatly stored by placing them inside of antique pewter mugs and goblets. The aged texture of the vessels adds to the warm feeling of a cozy autumn afternoon.
This traditional table holds various decorations to add color and art to the neutral walls and brown leather sofa. A blue bird figurine, blue goblet and blue coffee table books are complemented by forsythia branches and gold leaf picture frames.
If you have a collection of pewter serving sets that never get used, why not give them new purpose as floral vessels? Add potting soil inside of a gravy boat or goblet, then carefully pot a flower or plant inside of it. For an extra layer of decoration, cover the soil with dianthus cut to size and held in place with floral pins.
Disposable party-ware is very inexpensive, child-friendly and super practical, but it doesn't have to be boring! With a little imagination and some crafty supplies (brown foam, pompoms and googly eyes from craft stores), you can transform even the most basic of paper cups into a fun and unique Rudolph goblet that makes any drink taste even sweeter.
Vintage wine goblets are a beautiful addition your guests won't soon forget. Don't worry if you didn't inherit gorgeous glassware — you can always buy them. In my experience, estate sales are far and away the best place to score vintage dishware. Orphaned or mismatched glasses are especially good buys (often less than a dollar each) but complete sets are also a steal. Bonus: Many estate sale companies dramatically discount remaining items on the last day so, if you're a gambler, you may be able to pick up a complete set of the antique stemware you wish you'd inherited for a song.
