Anyone who knows me knows that I believe a beautiful, colored goblet is the quintessential corner piece to any tablescape. To be honest I am downright giddy to say that the Goblet is here to stay! Whether you are going rustic, vintage, farmhouse, or even classic, the right goblet can serve as a statement piece on your table among your centerpieces and florals. Goblets come in all shapes, sizes, and textures, which makes them a great added element of design to your tables. If you are stuck with plain, white china and standard napkins, a goblet can be that one item that elevates the rest of your place setting. Traditionally this role was taken on by the charger (a decorative plate that sits under the salad plate/napkin), which is not necessarily bad; however, they tend to be bulky and more space-intensive than say, a piece of glassware. Both options add flair and dimension to your dinnerware; however, the goblet is the true diamond in the rough. It takes up very minimal space and adds the same pop of color and design.
The good news—Goblets are e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e! Literally. Amazon is everyone’s best friend, and guess what, they’ve got ’em! When my husband and I were planning our wedding we made it a hobby to collect as many vintage, colored goblets as we could. We went old school and pillaged antique stores up and down the coast of Northern California. We would find 4 here, 6 there, a one-off, and when we found one at a reasonable price it was like winning the lottery! As we neared our wedding date we were still short goblets to fulfill our tables and guest count. In the end, we resorted to Amazon, goodwill, and local non-antique stores. The look turned out completely cohesive and no one was none the wiser that we didn’t get all of our goblets from unique little antique stores.
The point is, if you are looking to elevate your table decor, goblets are a simple and cost-effective way to enhance the drab and embrace the unique!
