Rose-Colored Glasses…

… and I don't mean of the eyewear variety. I've been spotting colored glass popping up all over the place, whether in vase, lighting or dinnerware form. An instant way to provide a colorful focal point to your tablescape, I'm loving the idea of collecting your favorite shades and scattering them about your home.

Let's use photos as inspiration to walk us through the concept, shall we?:

Happy collecting, friends!
