“They are all so nice for any occasion but I would love the Elizabeth Pearl Bracelet for my wedding!
Marilyn Monroe sang “Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend” because she knew diamonds could never cheat, lie or upset anyone. And they always look nice on or off, and help you get compliments!
While Men chose dogs, Women chose rocks!”
Depression glass is highly collectible for its translucent beauty and many uses. It was manufactured during the 1920’s to 1950’s in the USA and comes in many colours including amber, burgundy, blue and the by far the most popular – peachy pink and green. Not all glass made during the Depression was known as Depression glass. Some was known as Elegant glass.
In the USA the glass was obtained by buying soap powder and the manufacturer throwing in a free piece of glass, or movie nights where for a nickel patrons could buy a piece of glassware. After the Depression this glass was no longer valued and was discarded by many families.
Today Depression glass is found in flea markets and antique stores and is highly prized for the clear colours, patterns and even its utilitarian nature. Available in everything from butter dishes and lemon squeezers to dishes and lamps each piece if prized for its history and intrinsic beauty.

Earlier today I shared the first part of Elyse and Tim’s wedding. After their cupcake feast, the couple headed to 91, the event space of The Upper Crust. A mini loft space in the West Village of Manhattan.
The couple held their ceremony in one section of the venue (which was later transformed to a lounge area). Elyse walked down the aisle to “Un Homme et Une Femme” also known as the theme from movie When A Man Loves A Woman.
Dan Fehlig of The Upper Crust helped bring the couples vision together. Decorations included crystal chandeliers, amazing floral arrangements (by Gerald Palumbo of Seasons A Floral Design) and tall columns. In lieu of favors, the couple gave each guest truffles in a silver box and a note regarding the donation the couple had made to a charity in honour of Elyse’s father.
The couple took dance lessons with Anne Marie Nespoli of Wedding Day Dance. Tim’s choice of song ” Anyone At All” by Carole King captured the couples relationship perfectly. Elyse took a reluctant Tim to dance lessons and the groom soon found his feet! The couple rehearsed every day, Tim was determined to get the dance perfect!
Only one minor mishap- 10 seconds into their dance the CD player blew up! Luckily it didn’t stop the celebrations!
Thank you Elyse and Tim for allowing Polka Dot Bride to share your beautiful wedding day!
