Wedding Wednesday #12 - Got Milk?... milk glass that is...

You just knew that one of these "Wedding Wednesdays" would be about milk glass, didn't ya?

Much of the milk glass I've collected is old, but this set of three cake stands is replica... the other two stands are vintage.  I picked one up at a local antique store and the other at a rummage sale at a retirement home.  Both were $15 which I thought was a steal.  I think the cake, or should I say cupcake, table will look fabulous!

Most of my milk glass collection has been thrift store finds.  All of the piece below came from a local thrift store... the most expensive?  Just $2.99... can't bet those prices!

I have pitchers, creamers and even a sugar bowl to use...

And of course, lots and lots of vases....

As you know, the bud vases will be clustered on each table in sets of three.... but I also have other vases to use for larger floral bouquets to use all around.

After all, my collection is pretty large!  I'm not sure what my husband will think when I start packing boxes and boxes up of this stuff....

And what to put in some of these larger vases?  Well perhaps some of these dark purple hydrangeas that I stole acquired from my son's gorgeous bush!

Just the perfect color for this purple and green wedding.

His hydrangea bush is huge and covered in fabulous, monstrously big blossoms.... I hope some of them will still be looking this good in August!

Counting down the days... 4 1/2 weeks to go.
