I just got back from the local thrift store. I bought some clear glass and white glass items. All different sizes and shapes. … and now looking at all of it together it looks really cheap. Our colors are black, white and purple. Because of the white glass I am thinking of dyeing all the lace black and doing a white runner and purple table cloths. We are also doing long tables not round. (the big mason jar looks very out of place so I am already planning to use that not on the tables.)
Does anyone know of any real wedding or inspiration photos that have both clear glass and white glass?
I have spent about 15$ so far but I would appreciate any advice on what to buy, what not to buy, if it looks awful, how I can make it better… anything… 🙂 I feel like it needs work before I run out and spend more money…. Thanks ladies!

I think it will look fine if you group like colors together..all white,all clear…and I wouldn’t dye the lace at all until you have it all figured out. Buy some cheap flowers to play around with and get your ideas more clearly defined, and go from there.

Ruffled had a really neat DIY project to paint clear glass vases to look like white milk glass. It doesn’t look too hard and you could paint your clear vases so that they looked like your white vases. The tutorial is here.

@ItWasntMe: I definately wont dye until I know for sure what we want. I dont want it to look morbid. hehe
@Cappugcino: Thank you for the idea. I found some that were already white but I like the idea of making them all uniform. Fiance wants to use colored water and floating candles. I would like to resell all the glass… I dont know if would buy the glass if its been painted because I would bet it would chip. I would have to look into glass paint.. Thanks!
@julies1949: Thats kind of what I am looking for thanks!
