Olive-Green Tinted Dollar Tree Glasses


The beautiful color of green.

It’s one of my favorite colors, so you can only imagine how thrilled I was when the Dollar Tree started carrying olive-green tinted wine glasses.

I stocked up, told my friend Jenny about them, and she stocked up too.

Then when I went back to buy more, all the stores in my area were sold out.

But guess what? That is the beauty of your friends stocking up also, because you get to share!

I love green because it’s the color of spring, summer and fall … and Christmas! It’s so versatile, I couldn’t wait to buy more for larger gatherings.

And, did you know you can actually go online to the Dollar Tree to buy items in bulk numbers of 12 or more?

Perfect for entertaining.

I’ve often had readers ask about my glass plates that I use quite often. It was such a deal to buy them at a yard sale, but I did come across these that are also sold at the Dollar Tree.

Again, perfect for entertaining and holidays, showers, you name it …

I’ve been enjoying the “new green.” And was happy when my friend brought her basket of glasses over for a larger party I was hosting.

Replacing the “clear glass.”

For a fresh entertaining look.

Do you like clear glass or colored glass for entertaining?

    Goodness! I should visit my Dollar Tree more often. I’m always amazed at what you are able to find there. Those green glasses are lovely. Guess I’m adding it to my weekend errand list.

    They are just about to open a new Dollar Tree at the mall here in town. Hopefully they will have some of these glasses!!

      You’re going to love having one so close to you! Not everything is my style there, but there are usually a few gems :)

    Ooh, green is my favorite color too.

    To answer your question. I don’t know. I’ve never tried colored glasses. I don’t know how that would look with the normal “vintage” – mismatched china (or mostly white) and tableclothes I use.

    You’re tables ALWAYS look so pretty…because you do change it up and are versatile with what you already have to make a whole new look/style.

    The glasses are so pretty! I love that shade of green. Now, I am hoping my local Dollar Tree has some! :-)

    Wow, I really love them! Maybe I should go check out my dollar store, too!

    Green is one of my favorite colors, too. But anyone who walks in through the front door figures that out pretty quickly!

    The glasses are beautiful and look great outdoors. As a winemaker though, I have to stick with clear. The color of the wine is everything in my world.

      Totally understand, Cathy! :)

    Hi Sandy,

    I’m planning a trip to my Dollar Store, too. I checked the online Dollar store and now they’re on back order. Your wonderful blog post is going to cause a run on these beautiful glasses.

    Blessings to you and your family,
    j

    Are those candles on your table? They look like they have a flint…not sure what they are called…where did you get them..very pretty! Thanks!

    • Sandy replied: — August 21st, 2012 @ 8:22 am

      They are, Judy. They are little tiki torches and we bought them in a store back in Indiana. They get pretty hot though, so we’ve had to move them off the table. :)

    I love your website and just bought your book. If we do not use wine, but want to entertain, what other pretty glasses would you recommend? Also, are the white plates in many of your pictures Mikasa’s French Countyside? Thank you.

    Love these glasses! I found this color and a beautiful shade of cobalt blue also. Cannot go wrong for $1! They are bigger than most too! Thanks for sharing. I love your blog.

    That is one pretty tablescape, Sandy! I love that shade of green, my favorite color too. I will have to stick with my clear glasses as my dishes have a blue pattern to them and the cabinets are filled to bursting already. How fun to think that everyone wants “Sandy glasses”, you are famous girl!

    I love tinted glass – I used to be a big fan of anything with a blue tint, but now I like something with a rose or gold hue. Those green ones are pretty fabulous too – the dollar stores have great treasures sometimes don’t they?!

    Love your green glasses but love clear so I can get by with fewer sets to go with the many sets of dishes we have. My wife and I have found serving dishes to match the 7 part relish tray from her mother (Early American Prescut). They have been so cheap we can’t resist. They remind us of your goblets and look fancy enough with china but casual enough with corelle. my wife has a small cupboard of clear pressed glass pickle/olive dishes. She calls them her grandma dishes. Such fun. Like picking out a dish wardrobe. rick
