Colorful Tabletop Trend for Fall: Tinted Glassware
Adding colored glassware to the table is really quite different than adding colored linens, dishes or even floral arrangements. The difference is in the light , and how it reacts to colored glass. There’s a glow. The color is reflected, adding an extra warmth and festive feeling to the surroundings. Nothing could be lovelier than colored glass by candlelight.
I love my plain white china , and this photo shows why. I can add any color, by way of floral arrangements or linens and give the table a whole new look, all while using my tried and true white china. Tinted glassware adds a new twist to this. Amber glassware, the color of caramelized sugar, will add a whole new dimension and a warm welcoming glow to my holiday table.

He's Mr. Key West - and owner of his own private island
Mr. Key West
KEY WEST, Fla. - The land wasn't much to look at 50 years ago, a beat-up bit of coastline in a rundown island town, not even a beach to recommend it. But David Wolkowsky, the urbane, Panama-hatted visionary of modern-day Key West, took one look and thought: chic hotel.
It was vintage Wolkowsky. A burst of inspiration greeted by a lot of head-shaking followed by against-the-odds success. The 1968 opening of his Pier House hotel, with its air of "elegant inefficiency," as writer and friend Truman Capote put it, is now widely considered the turning point in Key West's transformation from washed up military outpost to funky tourist destination.
And it was a defining moment for Wolkowsky. For the next five decades, he would put his unconventional stamp on the island where he was born. Not so much the honky-tonk tourist side, though that was part of it, but the other Key West, the place where front porches serve as art installations, bike bells replace car horns and night-blooming flowers perfume the air with mystery.
