Mis Matched Glassware and Thrifty Shopping


Mary Engelbreit one said "it's liberating not to be matchy matchy" and I agree. It is the theme of my dining room after all. Currently, I am searching for dishes and stuff for my beautiful dining room cabinet and focusing on Champagne flutes right now since I usually host the NYE party in our social circle. I did a little thrift shopping today and got these champagne flutes and napkin rings for $7. The goal is to find all clear glasses that are similar sizes so they look similar but not matching...
I thought I would easily find an inspiring table scape picture on google to demonstrate my idea and have had ZERO luck. so just use your imaginations.... until the day it all comes together HA
I read on another blog how the mis match them is so fun, because its challenging, and it wont matter if one breaks, as you can pretty easily replace them and its also cheap!
True statement!

I think this is a great idea, and I can't wait to see how it turns out. Sometimes I get a twitch when things arent symmetrical in a room or things aren't balanced visually, but I don't think the mismatch would bother me, in fact, I think it will be fantastic! I think the key here is "similar." You are so creative!

I also am a big fan of the mismatch! I think that may come from childhood because you know this house is a total collection of crazy things. Love it!

LOVE them!! All of our wine glasses are mismatched. As a matter of fact, most of my stuff is! :)

Love it! I love all mismatched stuff. I always have. It makes it more of a home, in my opinion;)
