Ruby glass is a beautiful coloured glass available from antique shops or if you are really lucky – from collectable markets.

Used as a really special touch as part of your reception it invokes an air of the gentility of days gone by. Perhaps it brings back happy memories of your grandparents or other older relatives and could be used as a nod to these special people.

Available in decanters, compotes, cake stands, glass vases with frilly edges, pitchers and many other containers, they would look really pretty grouped together on your tables filled with voluptuous red or white roses or peonies, or with dainty old fashioned bouquets. A variety of bowls and cake stands would look beautiful on a dessert table filled with luxurious sweet treats.

Tall banquet lamps on tables with their glass shades graduating from ruby through to clear or white glass would cast a soft glow. One word of warning – put these special pieces away from the dancing action. It would be a shame to have these old pieces break on your special day.
