I have always had a love of entertaining guests at home, particularly over food or serving a nice spread over wine. Since becoming an engaged woman, my appreciation for classic and useful food platters, serving pieces and other entertainment-focused items has grown, as I have built and revised my own bridal registry.
One of my favourite types of entertainment pieces are items that are made from glass. Glass is gorgeous for many reasons. It is simple to clean, it shows off the colour and beauty of the food you are serving, and it puts the attention purely on the delicious meal or canapes you spent hours slaving over or received after dealing back and forth with a catering company or takeout counter from a restaurant.
Here are some beautiful glass pieces I have come across on my bridal registry missions…
