Serving Fresh Strawberries In A Vintage Milk Glass Pedestal Compote Dish

Retro Summer Entertaining Ideas

Vintage milk glass dishes make lovely serving pieces for summer time parties and gatherings. Look how delicious these fresh strawberries look displayed in a milk glass compote dish. And the good news is that vintage milk glass dishes are easy to find and very fairly priced.

Many of us who grew up in the 1950s, remember how popular milk glass was when entertaining. Now you can be just the perfect Retro housewife by bringing out some of these charming collectibles and using them once again.

And you need not just use them for fruit. The scalloped edged bowl shown makes a lovely serving piece for crackers to sit along side a dip or cheese platter.
