Milk Glass Tablesetting

I love milk glass, especially the Indiana Harvest grape pattern and Fenton Hobnail.  I have been lucky to collect 21 of the Indiana dinner dishes in which I found in local antique stores and flea markets.  

I have set my table for two using some of my favorite pieces of milk glass. I am using the Fenton vases for a small serving of shrimp cocktail:


This bowl (which might be Westmoreland?) will hold the pasta.  The silver spoon was my mother's.


I used a Fenton epergne as a centerpiece to hold a few yellow flowers.  This was also my mother's and she used it during holidays, filling the bowl with candy and each individual vase with flowers:


As for the condiments and cocktail sauce for the shrimp cocktail, they will be placed in a small Fenton bowl and the yellow floral bowl from Sur La Table will be for parmesan cheese:


A simple setting for 2:


The extra shrimp cocktail will be served in a larger Fenton pedestal bowl and I am using Lenox stemware:


The smaller forks for the shrimp are really plastic disposable forks!


The zebra chargers are from Hobby Lobby:


I have also found more Indiana pieces to match the dishes, my favorite being a large platter and small sherbet bowls.  I am always on the hunt for more pieces!

  1. Patti, what a pretty table. I love the idea of using the little fluted edge vases to serve shrimp cocktail. Reminds me of the McK-C mini compotes. My mom collected milk glass, and one of my nieces now has her collection. I'm going to share your idea with her. Very clever! Love the pretty serving spoon from your mom. I've never seen a milk glass epergne. Very nice!

  5. How beautiful! I am crazy for milk glass (so why don't I collect it?), and I am kicking myself for not picking up a darling milk glass vase the other day. I think you have inspired me to get going on it! Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven to say hi.

  14. Patti, what a striking table...how creative to use the little vases to serve shrimp. I had 3 dinner plates in the Harvest pattern and it took almost 5 years to find the 4th. I will be doing a table using them sometime in the near future.

  16. Patti,
    What a beautiful table you've set. I love how you are going to use the little vases with the fluted edges for serving shrimp cocktail! I have just begun to collect milk glass. I saw a beautiful footed bowl at an antique store last week that I can't get out of my mind. Must go back and get it!
