A festive way to add some cheer to your holiday table is to add some colorful tinted glassware.  You can get a whole new look by adding tinted glassware.   If you have plain white china tableware, adding Christmas glassware that is tinted with color, will make your holiday table very attractive.

Try adding red or green glassware for that extra sparkle.   By adding colorful glassware to your Christmas Tableware Sets, you create a warm ambiance for not only the table but also the dining area.  The interaction between the colors and light, especially candlelight, creates a wonderful glow.  Everyone loves dinner by candlelight not just romantics.
