I’m smitten by the work of Christina Moreno. I’ve never seen vintage vessels, such as milk glass vases, look so modern. I’m particularly loving the milk glass and moss designs. They would make gorgeous wedding centerpieces, being a chic alternative to flowers. Decorative moss also lasts several years, which means you get to use them again to decorate your house. Check out her Etsy shop and her blog.

    Gorgeous! This would be beautiful for some of my smaller milk glass vessels! I have about 100 in my collection which will be used in our March 6th wedding! Thank you for posting this! *K

  • We’re using vintage milk glass for our centerpieces! We scored over 50 pieces for about $30!

  • My jaw just dropped. They are SO lovely. I love the stark contrast and simultaneous harmony. I am definitely going to buy some. I am in love. In love, I tell you!

  • I used milk glass for my wedding centerpieces, and they were beautiful. I still have about 30 or so that I don’t have room for, if anyone wants to make some of these themselves.

    If anyone would like to sell their milk glass vases I would be willing to pay! I am also getting married in about 3 months and would love to do this for my center pieces. Hopefully you’ll be able to see this! This blog is way over a year old. I am willing to give it a shot because I really want to do this and can’t find good priced milk glass vases anywhere! Please let me know if you would like to sell :)
