Glass luncheon plates

A few years ago when my hubby's grandmother passed away, we were given quite a bit of china, glassware and luncheon plates. We loved the little luncheon plates and decided we needed more for family gatherings or church functions.
The plates are great for showers, parties, etc. We found that they are at thrift stores and antiques stores for a reasonable cost. We never pay alot for them. We now have about 80 dishes and are short a few cups. The cups are punch bowl cups and are pretty easy to get. The loveliest way to show these plates off is to put them on a colored placemat or colored tablecloth.
My hubby's grandmother was quite the stylist when she set her tables. Always an amazing centerpiece and lovely linens to match. I'm teaching my kids to set beautiful tables. It sets the mood and always makes your guests feel special.
Blessings, Debbie

Oh how I love those clear glass luncheon plates & cups. We used to use that kind at church for every wedding & baby shower!! Wonder whatever happened to them?! Do they have a specific pattern name?

Thanks for bringing back some good memories today for me!

My mother had some of those lovely glass luncheon trays. But one day she sold them in a garage sale! I was so disappointed that she hadn't offered them to me first!
They are so useful for showers and ladies' luncheons, can't imagine why they went out of favour.
