First off, did you know that we have registry services at Heart of the Home? If you are the bride (or know the bride) and you are looking to support local with your registry, then we are the place for you! We have a wonderful selection from tableware to cookware to housewares that will tick all the boxes! The benefits of a wedding registry is to provide a central place for guests to find inspiration, help prevent duplication, and provide gifts that will make the guest feel confident they are giving a gift that will be used and appreciated by the soonlyweds.
Now for the inspiration!
If you have ever browsed an antique mall, you will see lots of Depression glass on the shelves, with pink being the most popular, and amber or green being the most rare. The latest trends of coloured glass feature a lighter, more delicate glass and crystal, but the colours certainly harken back to the cheery hues of Depression glass.
Look for platters, plates and bowls, cake stands, decanters, tumblers and wine/martini glasses in lovely colours that will complement the soon-to-be-weds home decor and favourite hues. Shop the best selection in person at our store. Find these fun Valencia footed water glasses on our website: https://www.heartofthehomeyeg.ca/search/valencia/
