Rule number one - start with the most colorful name in glass! It begins with choosing a statement piece – or assembling a star-studded cast of small players. We recommend our 2823 Snow Bowl for a bright pop of pastel blue and textured white frit, and whose low profile encourages talking across the table. Or try one of our 6424 Tall Strata Vases in Tangerine or Olive – a tall piece with touchable texture that pulls the gaze up and encourages eye contact. Set our sleek and modern glass pieces with seasonal gourds, or evergreen boughs, or a lush pile of velvet. Set our colored glass on white tablecloths to maximize the blaze of our glass. Any which way you set it, set it front and center!
Blenko Loves Blenko! What was once our advertising tagline of the 1960s is still true! We design our glass here at Blenko, and steep ourselves in the hundred plus year history of our beautiful and unique tableware. Our newer Blenko designs are designed to sit alongside our vintage ones – try adding onto your 1960s Minis with our new Building Blocks! Also think about staging small scenes with our glass of different heights – a tall Strata vase with a small Paper Bag Vase and a Ball Bud Vase for three different heights in the same setting. Mix textured and smooth by placing a Block Bud Vase alongside a Strata Block Vase.
It’s the holiday season, and the time when we retreat indoors, tuck ourselves under blankets, and steep ourselves with color and light. Blenko is the perfect way to do this! Our Mountain Pine series are a charming trio of trees that clock in at different heights and love to be displayed in descending order. Our Snow Bowl glows when you place a string of lights inside! Or our Hard Candy Christmas Bowls look good in the light of a window or flanking a mantle. Our Holiday color palette – Olive, Hay, Ruby, Ice Blue, Clover – give you opportunities to mix and match: Ice Blue looks great with Olive, and Olive and Hay give classic style; Olive and Ruby make for a great Christmas pairing.
